Current Position: Director, Gleeds Management Services Ltd
NEC Experience: I have been using the NEC suite of contracts for over 12 years and have extensive experience of procuring projects using the NEC3/ECC form of contract with a particular specialism in the Education and Healthcare sectors, using ECC Option A, Option C and Option E respectively, with a combined value in excess of £800+ million completed projects to date, where I have acted as the named Project Manager. In addition, I also head up the Gleeds Cardiff office Project Management Team manage a team of 12Nr project managers – 4nr of which also hold the NEC3: ECC Accredited Project Manager qualification with the remainder due to complete the qualification over the next 6 months.

Key roles and responsibilities in this respect have involved, but are not limited to:

•    Embedding NEC/ECC requirements in initial procurement options and tender process.
•    Preparing and collating Works Information
•    Preparing and collating Site Information
•    Completing the Contract Data
•    Administering and managing the Contract (i.e. Payment, EWN’s & Risk Management, Accepted Programme, managing change through Compensation Events, Certifying Completion and dealing with Dispute Resolution).

My NEC3 experience is not just limited to the main ECC contract but also includes the ECC Framework Contract, Short Contract and the Professional Services Contract, mainly using Options A and C respectively.

Within my current Employment, I am the Wales & South West Project Management lead for Gleeds’ in-house NEC3 Technical Panel, which comprises an internal group of experts via an NEC Forum who develop a consistent approach across the firm, share knowledge and best practice, deliver training, champion innovation and continuous improvement.

I hold the NEC3: ECC Accredited Project Manager qualification and have also undertaken numerous other internally and externally organised NEC3 and now NEC4 courses and CPD events at both beginner, intermediate and advance practitioner level, in order to continually develop and widen my overall knowledge, understanding and opinion.

In addition to the above, I have also given CPD talks to internal colleagues and external clients & wider project team members, on the practical application of the ECC contract, its key aspects and features and the roles and responsibilities of the respective parties.
