NEC4 Compensation Events (Oct)

Construction Related Training
Date: 3rd October 2019 | Time: 9.00am – 5.00pm


One of the key advantages in using the NEC Engineering & Construction Contract (ECC) is the proactive way in which it manages changes through compensation events. Ironically, this is also the area users of the contract encounter the greatest difficulties.  

This is an advanced course for experienced users of the contract who need to know :

  • how the early warning and Accepted Programme processes feed into the compensation vent process;
  • what is and I not a compensation event;
  • the procedure and timescales for their assessment; and
  • how changes to the contractual Completion Date and the Prices, including the often misunderstood Schedules of Cost Components, are assessed.

While this course will focus on the 4th edition of the ECC, most of the content will be just as relevant to those still working on the 3rd edition.

Whether you are a Client, a Contractor or a Consultant, this course will give you significant benefits in having the confidence to properly manage this critical aspect of the contract.

At the end of the course, participants will:

  • Fully appreciate the principle of compensation events.
  • Have an enhanced knowledge of how compensation events are assessed in terms of time & cost.
  • Be fully confident in managing change under the contract.
