About this Book
From its launch in 1991 the New Engineering Contract has rapidly overtaken traditional building and civil engineering contracts to become the UK's leading standard form for major construction projects. Additionally, under the generic title NEC3, there is now a family of New Engineering Contract standard forms.
This book provides a detailed commentary on the latest edition of the main form - NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract. It explains how the contract is intended to operate and examines each clause to consider its application and legal interpretation. It draws upon the author's successful book on the second edition of the Engineering and Construction Contract, ECC2, and it identifies and comments on the changes between ECC2 and NEC3.
Particular attention is given to the revised compensation event procedures in NEC3, with five chapters of the book devoted to this subject. In-depth analysis is also given to:
- The role of the project manager
- The obligations of the parties
- The liabilities of the parties
- The revised dispute resolution procedures
