NEC Workshops

Advanced Level Management Training Workshops – NEC® Contracts in Hong Kong


The administration of capital works projects in Hong Kong is changing. Recent government policy initiatives seek to transition the industry away from its traditionally combative and adversarial operational style to more collaborative methods of working, in line with international best-practice.

The use of NEC3 Forms of Contract as the default choice for the procurement of all new public-sector capital works projects from 2015, is one such initiative. Additionally, in October of 2016 HK Government published practice notes and standardized amendments mandatory for all new NEC3 ECC projects which significantly alter the way NEC is implemented for HK Government projects. In 2017 a new set of NEC contracts, the NEC4 contract suite was published.

These new contracts together with proposed amendments by HK Government, require effective training of those responsible for managing project delivery. Training is required both in the contractual provisions of the various NEC contracts, the management and administrative procedures required to be followed, and also in the philosophy of collaboration, co-operation, openness and teamwork – the essence of the spirit of mutual trust and co-operation fundamental to the success of all NEC projects.

BK SURCO has been successfully delivering its NEC training programmes to the Hong Kong construction industry since 2012. More than 3500 delegates have successfully completed our training courses. Our training workshops are designed to deliver the necessary theoretical course content together with available time for group working using worked examples of the various features of the NEC Contracts. From 2017 our training programme was updated to accommodate content related to HK Government standard amendments to NEC contracts, and from 2018 guidance is also provided on the newly published NEC4 contract suite. In addition, special NEC Advanced Level Training Certificates will be provided for those attending 35 Hours of BK SURCO NEC Training during 2018.

BK SURCO’s NEC Project Management Course has been approved as meeting the requirements of the Chartered ICES.
