From the Back Cover

From its launch in 1991 the New Engineering Contract has rapidly overtaken traditional building and civil engineering contracts to become the UK s leading standard form for major construction projects. Additionally, under the generic title NEC3, there is now a family of New Engineering Contract standard forms.

This book provides a detailed commentary on the latest edition of the main form – NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract. It explains how the contract is intended to operate and examines each clause to consider its application and legal interpretation. It draws upon the author′s successful book on the second edition of the Engineering and Construction Contract, ECC2, and it identifies and comments on the changes between ECC2 and NEC3.

Particular attention is given to the revised compensation event procedures in NEC3, with five chapters of the book devoted to this subject. In–depth analysis is also given to:

  • The role of the project manager
  • The obligations of the parties
  • The liabilities of the parties
  • The revised dispute resolution procedures

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Tom Cahill on 27 July 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Once you've got your head around these things, these books are very dreary. That is not to say that I thought this when I bought this book years ago. There's a legal commentary which is actually a lot better, but that's out of print. This was the best one following that one though. The main point is that no one ever sticks to the NEC on NEC contracts, so in one way, it is all a waste of study. That is not to say that the NEC is a bad contract, but the education level of those who manage most of the government jobs, which use the NEC, is not there, and those who manage it on private jobs, take the clauses out, to make it like and ICE or JC Works, which they were used to. You won't be sorry you bought it. I didn't give it 5 stars for no reason.

This book is definately worth the high price. Very readable explaining each clause of the contract in clear english. Being a newcomer to the NEC3 suite of contracts I found this book to be very helpful.
