Partnering with the NEC and ICE Contracts

Partnering is a familiar concept now in many construction projects. It has been around for years and is designed to reduce the likelihood of disputes between parties. Stephen Homer takes a look at how partnering works under the NEC and ICE forms of contract.



Contractor's Float

Readers will probably be aware that one of the issues that often arises in construction disputes regarding extensions of time is the issue of who owns the contractor's float in his programme. Contractors invariably include a contingency period in their programme of works. This can be either a contingency specific to a particular item on the programme or a general contingency, for example the last two weeks of the programme prior to the contractual completion date. Stephen Homer talks us through how this works under NEC3.
