In this blog we’ll explore NEC Option A and NEC Option C to find the best fit for your needs. There will also be information about our NEC Walk-In Clinics which are tailored to teach you everything you need to know about NEC ECC.
NEC Option A
This option is ideal for straightforward projects as it is perfect for new builds and less complex ventures. It is also easy to administer payment on these types of projects and there is a clear risk allocation for both parties.
To ease the admin, we can even agree on a Z clause based on the percentage of completion, ensuring a seamless journey towards project success.
NEC Option C
Medium to major valued works are the best for this option. It’s beneficial because it’s prepared to face risks associated with physical and weather conditions, as well as emphasising on teamwork and collaboration for the most efficient outcomes.
For added security, consider agreeing on a price capping mechanism to mitigate potential financial challenges. An open-book audit will also be required for transparent reporting, fostering trust among stakeholders and ensuring a well-managed project.
Both NEC Option A and NEC Option C have their advantages and are adaptable to different projects. Choose Option A for straightforward new builds and projects with minimal risks, while Option C suits medium to major valued works that require effective collaboration and risk management.
