SA Industry Breakfast: ‘A Spotlight on the NEC Suite of Contracts’

Wednesday 22 May 2019 I 7:30am - 9:00am I Playford Adelaide, North Terrace

NEC is a suite of collaborative contracts that facilitates project management principles and collaborative practices as well as defining legal relationships.  

Delivery of major infrastructure is difficult. Governments across Australia are facing increasing pressure to deliver fit for purpose infrastructure on time and on budget. Yet the lack of standard form contracts and the increase in claims suggest that current contacting models are worsening the health of the consulting and contracting community just at the time when we need it to be vibrant and proactive in support of our country’s objectives.

Foreign governments have been through this process already and adopted a number of measures to help the market they need so badly. One of those measures concerns the contract form choosing NEC4 to replace out-dated, bespoke lump sum forms.  NEC4 is catching the eye of some government clients in Australia that are looking to do things differently.

This session will cover the key aspects of NEC4 and will be presented by industry experts who have worked under it and are familiar with its unique qualities.
