NEC Form of contracts: NEC is a family of contracts that is commonly used projects around Wales and the UK. It is suitable for procuring a diverse range of works, services and supply, spanning major framework projects through to minor works and purchasing of supplies and goods. Speak to an experienced NEC Programme Manager on all elements associated with delivering a project managed through NEC. Tendering and Costing: By consistently evaluating opportunities and making informed bid/no bid decisions, you’ll respond to fewer opportunities. This means you’ll spend less. When you spend less, you’ll have more resources available for the right opportunities. When this happens, you win more and that’s the goal. Come along for an informal chat about tendering and costing processes associated with winning work. Digital Construction: Today, utilising digital products is a necessity! Make sure that you keep up with the competition by using digital construction products for both on-site and in-office solutions.
