The Engineering and Construction Contract (ECSC) is the 'minor works' contract in the NEC family. It is designed for low complexity contracts with not too much Contractor design. This webinar was held on 1 June 2022.

This webinar looked at the basics of;

  • putting together the contract and
  • contract management.

It highlighted the key differences between the ECSC and its big brother the Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC).
