About: Since 2006 I have provided consultancy and training to contractors and clients working in both the public and private sector under the NEC form of contract. Whilst the suite of NEC contracts is intended to be easy to understand and use, it is culturally different to other contracts and has processes that have to be understood and administered. Many parties particularly when embarking on their first project under this contract can find it difficult primarily as they have not had the understanding or training to administer it.


GMH Planning provide both planning support to companies in administering their programmes and provide standard and bespoke training courses in understanding and administering the contract. The range of courses include:

1. General Introduction to NEC3
2. Planning under NEC 3
3. Start Up Workshop for specific ECC/ECS project
4. Compensation Events

As long as it is done legally then should not be an issue - but that needs both Parties but in to wording etc and then to sign it. It is in effect a new contract and not something that is necessarily that straight forward.

Hi Glenn,

What are the legal implications of amending standard forms of contract to
suit the contractual parties needs?

I was experiencing difficulty in posting a question when clicking on "ask a question" so I would be grateful if you could answer my question on here.

Thank You.

Once you are a registered with Built intelligence (which you must be to add this post) you should see a tab at the top that says "ask a question". This then allows you to post a question. If you are not seeing this, send me a screen shot (to glenn@gmhplanning.co.uk) of your "home" page and I will try to help further.

Hi Glenn,

Apologies for asking, but..........how do I ask a question? I've looked at the FAQ's and can't see anything there which actually tells me what to click on to ask a question.

Am I not able to ask a question yet as I'm a very new member?

Thank you
