NEC Contracts and COVID-19

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues, and government advice is updated on an almost-daily basis, we understand that if you’re a client or a contractor, you might be concerned about how this will affect your projects. Our team of procurement experts are on hand whenever you need them, to help you through this.

The full impact of this situation is still unknown. It may give rise to a range of construction-related risks – both foreseeable and unforeseeable, which your teams will have to actively manage and mitigate during this pandemic. In order to manage these risks, all parties need to be aware of and in agreement with the treatment of contractual issues.

To support these conversations and the decisions you’ll have to make, we’ve created a short guide which covers:

  • Contractual clarifications including client liability
  • Compensation events
  • Mitigation exposure to risk
  • Replacement clauses

Our network of relationship, framework and group development managers are ready to provide support and guidance as you need. So please get in touch – we’d love to help in any way we can.
