• NEC3 – Best Practice in Project Procurement and Delivery

    22 October 2015

    nec3

    This Conference will concentrate on what is good about NEC3 in terms of risk allocation, collaboration, risk management and dispute avoidance and how these benefits are being achieved on the NEC contracts under construction in Hong Kong. This will be of particular interest to all those who participate in the construction industry, both in Hong Kong and elsewhere. Delegates will have a unique opportunity of learning from practitioners with many years experience in the construction industry of Hong Kong and who have seen first-hand the problems caused by adversarial relationships in conventional contracting and the benefits that can be achieved through the spirit of mutual trust and cooperation that is fostered by NEC3 and other forms of collaborative contract, thereby improving performance in project procurement and delivery. Of particular interest will be an insight into how the project team on MTR’s first NEC3 contract have adapted to this collaborative approach. This is a unique challenge for NEC3, especially when Phase 1 of this particular project was successfully implemented under MTR’s own contract form which has been in use for many years.

    Date: 30th October 2015
