NEC4, the next generation of the NEC suite of contracts, was released on 22 June 2017. It includes significant developments and reflects current best practice throughout the construction industry.

During this breakfast briefing, we highlighted the key changes and what they will mean for you. Even if you are not changing to NEC4 imminently, it may be useful to consider any NEC4 changes you might want to take advantage of now in your current negotiations on the NEC3 forms.

Topics included:

  • Overview of NEC4 changes - the "big picture"
  • Practical implications of programming and time-related changes
  • Changes to the payment provisions and the Main Options
  • Other key changes and implications of NEC4 going forward
