    Abstract

    The Purpose of this study is to highlight what management capabilities are needed in order to get the optimum of a New Engineering Contract (NEC) in comparison with other forms of building and construction contract.

    The Study will use primary and secondary research to establish what the core management capabilities are needed and what the difference is in order to administer and manage an NEC contract.

    The methods will include a comprehensive literature review, combining literature with industry opinion in its wider sense, and more in detail in interviews and questionnaires.

    The reason this study has been undertaken is that there is an undeniable change towards the NEC,and in an industry where good management practice is paramount; the importance of this study will hopefully help in the smallest of regard.

    This is by no means a ground breaking piece of research; this is about a real contract that is used by real people, in real industry involving real money, and real careers. This is intended to be a practical piece of research with a view of developing further guidelines applicable to the construction industry.

    It is hoped that this study represents the University’s move towards employability over academic skills, whilst a broadly academic structure had been adhered to, it is hoped that some parts of this study have proved innovative in its approach.
