NEC Managing Reality: Complete Set of 5 Manuals (Paperback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new product or edition.


Since its launch in the early 1990s, the NEC has become a truly groundbreaking concept which has revolutionised the way construction contracts are procured and managed, resulting in major benefits in time, cost and quality. In order to take full advantage of the NEC's benefits, it is necessary to introduce a culture of partnering and changes in working procedures and practices. "NEC Managing Reality" is a series of manuals written by NEC experts well versed in using the NEC "at the coalface", that aims to explain how the NEC can be used to optimum benefit in everyday environments. The manuals are based on the usage of the NEC's core document - the Engineering and Construction Contract - although the principles and procedures they discuss apply equally across all documents in the NEC suite.They cover both use of the NEC in its "NEC2" version, on which virtually all existing NEC contracts have been based, and the newly published (July 2005) "NEC3", which is expected to be the version of NEC used on future projects. "NEC Managing Reality" places great emphasis on offering "practical tips" at appropriate points and providing examples to highlight points.

Standard forms are included with their usage explained together with checklists. They are practical manuals designed to aid both existing and new users in implementing and using the NEC. The set comprises five volumes as follows: "Introduction to the Engineering and Construction Contract" - This manual is aimed at those who are considering using the NEC but need further information, or those who are already using the NEC but need further insight into its rationale.
