Description

Use of the NEC (New Engineering and Construction) contract has grown steadily in all sectors of the construction industry over its 20-year lifetime, and a working knowledge of it is becoming essential for all architects, allied professionals, their clients and contractors involved in building projects.

This clear, accessible guide explains and demystifies the NEC3 contract on a practical, work-based level, and overturns the misconception that NEC is not a contract aimed at architectural projects. Explaining what it really means for an architect to make the leap to NEC3, it candidly acknowledges and answers the concerns and issues they are likely to face, and explores how to best adopt the collaborative working and contractual partnering work practices required by NEC, and the advantages of doing so.

About the Author

Frances Forward

Frances Forward BA(Hons) Dip Arch MSc (Const Law) RIBA FCIArb is a practising architect, adjudicator and lecturer with extensive experience in design, management and consulting roles within the construction industry, both in the UK and in Germany.

Frances’ MSc research in the early 1990s into a potential European standard form construction contract led her to explore the genesis of the fledgling NEC Contract, and she went on to pioneer the use of NEC on complex lottery-funded arts projects. She set up her own architectural practice in 1999 and NEC became her contract of choice for both professional services and construction.  In 2000, Frances was invited to assist the NEC Panel in drafting the NEC Partnering Option X12 and she subsequently became the architect member of the Panel during the drafting of the third edition, NEC3.

Frances expanded her architectural practice in 2005 to offer an additional role of management contractor, in order to allow clients to procure both the design and the off-site fabrication / on-site construction of sustainable homes from a single company. The partnering supply chain for her company includes both English and German specialist consultants and contractors, using NEC3 as the common form of contract. Frances has contributed to a number of papers and conferences regarding NEC and she lectures on NEC at various University Schools of Architecture as part of their Professional Practice programmes.
