Welcome to ECS
ECS Associates (Pty) Ltd – formally Engineering Contract Strategies CC – has been in business since 1993 providing consulting services to the engineering and construction industry. Primarily the service offering was focused on strategic advice, dispute resolution and training on the NEC. Today, the core of the business represents the belief that collaborative relationships between main contracting parties within the value chain, employees and other stakeholders, provide a necessary formula for both improved performance and transformation.
In addition to specialised services in training, development and application of contracts based on the NEC Suite, FIDIC, JBCC and GCC standard forms, ECS Associates offer a range of services in support of general management and leadership, planning, risk management, supply chain management, claims avoidance, claims management, performance management, management development and leadership coaching and training.
“Our mission is to facilitate the highest standard of skills and services necessary to successfully implement projects in the South African environment through collaborative relationships on all levels and application of best practices in contract administration and project management while beneficially transforming the engineering and construction industry.”
On the 5th, 6th and 10th April 2018, my colleagues Robyn Fourie, Si mambo Banda and I attended the Executive training on Contract Law, and the practical application of NEC & FIDIC contracts, as well as Claims Management.
The training was provided by ECS Associates (Pty) Ltd and their presenters Coenraad Snyman, Joseph Keogh, Andrew Baird and Mile Sofijanic.
I found the course to be very informative, insightful, practical and good value for money. The presenters were knowledgeable and experienced professionals.
I would strongly recommend the course to professionals involved in project management, ie. employees of both clients and construction companies.
