Site Supervision of Civil Engineering Contracts - NEC

Your site engineers are all numerate and technically competent, but how much do they know about the contract under which their project is to be delivered? Are they employed by the Client or the Contractor? Do they know what their supervisory roles are and what is expected of them on site?

Learning Outcomes:
This course will make delegates aware of the roles and responsibilities of site staff operating under the New Engineering Contract (NEC), in particular the role of the Client and the Contractor.

Aims & Objectives:
This course is aimed at giving your delegates a thorough understanding of how the NEC works and the principles underpinning it. After this course, your delegates will be able to apply the NEC on site to ensure successful completion of the project.

Course Outline:
Introduction to the New Engineering Contract
Risk Management and option selection
Early Contractor Involvement

Mode of Delivery:
This one day interactive course achieves results through a stimulating mixture of presentation, group exercises, roleplay and open workshop.

Benefits Perceived by Participants:
Gives a better understanding of how the New Engineering Contract works
Making good common sense decisions
Roleplay and interaction stimulate discussion
One-on-one sessions deal with specific problems

Intended for:
Graduate engineers and others with little or no experience of operating under the NEC on site.

Pre Course Requirements:
The course is aimed at graduates and others who need to know how to deliver projects on site under NEC. In order to get the most from the day, it will be useful if your delegates provide some advance information via a pre-course questionnaire. They will also each need to come with issues they need answers and guidance on.
