The NEC Family of Standard Form Contracts is used by major organisations across the length and breadth of South Africa. And this modern family of contracts has become the standard for private companies, parastatals and public sector organisations alike. The reason for this is that the NEC3 is often praised for facilitating the implementation of sound project management principles and practices as well as being flexible, simple to understand and it has been said that it promotes amicable working relationships. Because of the demand and use of the NEC it has become an essential and commercial requirement for anyone involved in the SA construction industry to have a good working knowledge of how the NEC3 ECC actually works in practice – this just makes good business sense!
