The book highlights the important and valuable role that the Supervisor plays in the successful delivery of a NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) contract. NEC4: The Role of the Supervisor is an essential ‘how to’ guide for those performing the role of Supervisor on NEC4 ECC contracts, and will also support employers in choosing a suitable person to be part of the team.
