Impact of Covid-19 on work under NEC4 Contracts Guidance

As the trade association and training body for the safety netting and temporary safety systems industry, FASET monitors the latest developments in the construction sector, particularly regarding worker health and safety, sustainability and equality.

We are pleased to share the following update from the Construction Leadership Council (CLC), which works between industry and government to identify and deliver actions supporting UK construction in building greater efficiency, skills and growth.

Yesterday, on Monday 26th July, the CLC in collaboration with NEC published joint guidance to industry and clients on dealing with and accommodating the impact of Covid-19 on work under NEC4 contracts.

The guidance adds to the suite of outputs from the CLC’s Business Models: Contractual Best Practice group which has routinely called for strategic collaboration between clients and the supply chain to avoid systemic market failures and compromised project delivery.

CLC and NEC would like to thank all those that participated in the development of this guidance, in particular, Jon Miller of Fenwick Elliott and Andrew Croft of Beale & Co on behalf of CLC and Peter Higgins of pdConsult and Ian Heaphy of IN Construction Consulting on behalf of NEC.
