Alliance with Working Partners
New Engineering Contract (NEC)
Following the successful completion of the Hong Kong's first pilot government NEC project - Improvement of Fuk Man Road Nullah in Sai Kung, our Department commenced five more NEC contracts in 2012. Under these NEC contracts, we have worked closely with our consultants and contractors in a spirit of mutual trust and cooperation to build a partnering and collaborative relationship through arranging partnering workshops, sharing of joint offices and resources, streamlining works procedures and encouraging communication by using instant messenger apps with smart phones, etc. In order to further promote a partnering culture, management and frontline staff of our Department, consultants and contractors organised team building activities, such as dragon boat races, team spirit promotion performances, charity visits, site cleaning day, etc. We are planning to launch more NEC pilot contracts, including the adoption of NEC for a new consultancy agreement and an electrical and mechanical (E&M) contract. We will continue to promote partnering culture and look forward to working with our partners in the industry for a wider adoption of NEC in Hong Kong.
