NEC4 Practical Solutions is an invaluable guide to the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract, providing a range of concise practical solutions for practitioners using NEC4 contract forms.
With a focus on implementing good practice, this accessible guide will help the reader to avoid common project pitfalls, and to implement best practice, ensuring the delivery of successful, effective and efficient projects.

The book will provide readers with a helpful problem-solving tool, and a compendium of hints, tips and answers to common queries and problems that occur in practice.
Written for construction professionals, NEC4 Practical Solutions is an ideal companion for both experienced professionals and early career practitioners. It will be essential reading for engineers, surveyors, architects, project managers, supervisors, consultants, contractors, subcontractors, and anyone else working with, or interested in working successfully with, the NEC4 suite of contracts.
