Assessing Compensation Events under the NEC

30 January 2020

London - Venue TBC

09:30 - 11:30

In this half day workshop, delegates will gain hands-on experience in how to correctly assess compensation events under the NEC Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) and the NEC Engineering and Construction Subcontract (ECS).

The session will make use of worked examples– delegates will be shown how to correctly navigate the relevant contractual provisions required to correctly assess various different types of compensation event.

The following topics will be covered in the workshop:

  • Notification obligations
  • The various compensation events which can arise under the core clauses and secondary option clauses
  • How to establish the change in Defined Cost associated with compensation events
  • Establishing the effect on the ‘planned’ Completion Date

Relevant extracts from the contract will be provided, but we highly recommend that delegates bring a full copy of the ECC or ECS along with them so they can be marked up with relevant examples.
