In this book the author describes these changes as a construction reformation and suggests that the advent of the NEC played an important part in promoting those changes. Since its introduction to the construction sector in 1991, the NEC has been highly recommended in the Latham Report and more recently by the Office of Government Commerce and is now widely used on many small and large projects in the UK and worldwide. ENSURING PROJECT OBJECTIVES In this guide, Bill Weddell, a long standing member of the NEC Panel and a highly respected consultant and trainer on the NEC utilises his skills and wide knowledge of the NEC to provide new and existing users with guidance on how to select and implement NEC contracts to suit differing project needs and objectives. ACCURATE CONTRACT STRATEGIES This guide explains in a concise and practical manner how to decide on the appropriate contract strategy for any given project and how to prepare the contract document for each type of NEC contract. It describes each of the documents and explains the selection methods for the various options and how these are used to produce the contract document. The book also clarifies some of the distinguishing features of the NEC contracts in contrast to the more traditional standard forms and explains how the management procedures in each contract can be used to achieve the Employer's objectives by effective control of time, cost and quality. THE READERSHIP This guide is a valuable tool for anybody involved in the NEC supply chain including clients, consultants, contractors, subcontractors, project managers, quantity surveyors, adjudicators and service suppliers - across the complete spectrum of construction activity. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Bill Weddell was on the original NEC Working Group and drafting team and has been involved in the later development of the NEC family of contracts up to the publication of NEC3. He has long experience of both design and construction of major civil engineering works including highways, bridges, docks and harbours, tunnels and sea defence works. He was Head of Contracts for a firm of consulting engineers and is now a contract consultant and runs training courses on the NEC.

The introduction of the New Engineering Contract (NEC) encourages a systematic approach to contracting which is multidisciplinary in nature and fully interlocked in form. The NEC is intended by its supporters to be more flexible and easier to use than any current leading traditional standard forms of contract. It is believed that these features reduce adversariality and disputes. The NEC seeks to achieve this aim primarily through co-operative management techniques and incentives built into the NEC's procedures. This commentary analyses and evaluates these and related claims of innovation. The New Engineering Contract: A legal commentary examines the background to the NEC, its design objectives, structure, procedures and likely judicial interpretation to determine whether it improves upon the traditional standard forms of contract. Special attention is given in the commentary to the development and the significance of the principles underlying preparation of the NEC as well as the arguments in favour of and against them.Throughout the detailed commentary upon the NEC clauses comparisons to the traditional forms are also made to highlight unique features and principles of general application. The conclusion reached is that the NEC does make a significant contribution to the development of standard forms of contract, addresses many of their short comings and offers one of the best models for their future development, direction and design. The commentary draws upon the body of the project management literature and legal analysis to support its conclusions. The New Engineering Contract: A legal commentary will be essential reading for lawyers, barristers and solicitors, as well as engineers and project managers.
