Common Pitfalls of Managing Programme Change Under NEC on Civil Engineering Projects

500 Park Avenue, Aztec West, Almondsbury, Bristol, BS32 4RZ

About the event

Gareth Williams, senior project manager, will review common pitfalls for clients and consultants in managing programmes under the NEC suite of contracts used in the highways and infrastructure sectors. 

Highways and infrastructure projects are often prone to change during the construction phase to due to the nature of the works and the amount of unknown in the ground. Managing the time impact on programmes of change managed through compensation events under NEC is often referred to as a ‘dark-art’ and the assessment of time entitlement complex. This CPD session will discuss some common pitfalls in the assessment of programmes under NEC and suggest helpful tips for management of programme change under NEC.

Parking at the venue is extremely limited and visitor parking must be booked in advance by contacting claire.turnbull@fgould.com Offsite parking is available in the nearby Aztec Hotel.
