Many architects and other consultants are appointed under the NEC3 Professional Services Contract  or its short equivalent especially for publicly funded work. In addition, consultants may well be appointed under one of these forms via the design and build route.

It is highly beneficial for architects to have an in depth understanding of their contractual commitments to their client under the PSC and vice versa. This workshop is pitched at an advanced level for people with a solid understanding of the professional services contracts.

NEC4 is now out and will also be covered.  Whilst public sector clients in Northern Ireland will be moving to NEC4 this is not expected to happen for approximately 12 months.

Objectives

At the end of the day, participants should:

  • know when to use each form and which options to choose,
  • how to fill in and respond to the Contract Datas,
  • have a thorough understanding of how to operate the key provisions of the two contracts,
  • know how to set up a contract for success.
