Our ebriefing, dated 7 March and available here, gave an indication of the changes in the new forms. There is no need to move immediately to the NEC4, and the third-edition is still fully supported by us and the authors. There are, however, good procedural improvements in the new forms, which are worth considering.

Ross Hayes is a member of our construction team and was part of the NEC drafting team that developed the new contracts. He has also developed a number of the training materials on NEC4 for Thomas Telford, the publishers of these contracts.

Further information

Please contact Ross or Andrew Millross if you would like to find out more about this new edition, or are considering the NEC for your next contract.
