ECS provides consulting services specialising in the development and application of contracts based on the NEC system of standard form contracts.

This modern system of contracts in now widely used in UK, Southern Africa, New Zealand and many other parts of the world.          
Originally launched in 1993, and then known as the New Engineering Contact, the family of contracts has grown to eleven standard form contracts covering the full procurement spectrum of works, services and supply both at main and subcontract levels.

Andrew Baird, the owner of ECS, has been a member of the NEC drafting team since inception and has the supply agency for southern Africa for all of the NEC documents in hard copy format. See “NEC Documents”.

Our mission is to facilitate the highest standard of skill and service necessary to develop, tender to and administer the NEC system of contracts.
