About this event

Speaker: Ben Walker, NEC4 drafter, CEO at CEMAR
The NEC4 Suite of Contracts builds upon the success of the NEC3 Contracts. The proven and unique processes for collaboration, fair dealing and good project management that are inherent in the NEC philosophy remain in this evolved edition.

The NEC Contracts have been updated and streamlined following feedback from the industry, considering Government priorities and emerging best practice. The result is a contract suite with improved flexibility and clarity, which is easier to use.

This briefing will explore the key changes and updates made from NEC3 to NEC4, and outline how NEC4 has made improvements throughout the works, services and supply contracts to help deliver projects on time, on budget and to the highest standards.
