HKMC Webinar: Deploying Mediation Skills in the NEC Contract Administration - 06:30pm, Tuesday 30 May 2023

New Engineering Contract ("NEC") as a relatively new standard form of contract in Hong Kong has been adopted by many government construction projects and promulgated in the construction industry. NEC is said to be more oriented to project management approach and dispute avoidance. To make the most out of the new contracting system, project personnel have to adopt a new culture away from the adversarial mindset in the contract administration. They have to exhibit more cooperative attitudes and adopt many of the amicable skills that are used in mediation. Hence, it is believed meditation skills do play an important role either purposefully or subconsciously in the NEC contract administration. In this seminar our speakers will share their experience in using NEC in their projects and particularly highlight the actual situations and potential opportunities that mediation skills could contribute to the successful administration of NEC contact for construction projects in Hong Kong.

This event will now be run as an Online Webinar from 06:30pm to 08:30pm on Tuesday 30 May 2023 in English, via Zoom Conferencing
