With the publication of the NEC4 contract, David Thomas and the team at Keating Chambers provide analysis of both NEC3 as it is used in practice, as well as a commentary on the changes introduced by NEC4, giving readers guidance on how to draft and use these contracts.

  • Provides commentary on the two key NEC contracts: the Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) and the Professional Services Contract (PSC)
  • Reproduces clauses and provides clause-by-clause commentary explaining how the contracts are intended to operate
  • Highlights ambiguities and questions of interpretation that arise and makes reference to relevant case law.
  • Written by leading barristers experienced in advising on NEC contracts.
  • Delivered in a clear, practical style.
New to edition:
  • Provides commentary on NEC4 clauses, alongside those of NEC3, so that comparisons can be easily made
