NEC has been used for the emergency remediation of a short stretch of urban culvert in Bradford, UK. Client City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council engaged contractor JN Bentley under a £1.3 million NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) Option A (priced contract with activity schedule) in June 2022. The work was successfully completed two weeks early and on budget in January 2023. The design and build contract involved relining a 22 m long section of the Bradford Beck culvert, which runs under much of the city. The culvert in this section is directly under the former Bradford Odeon building, which is being converted into 4,000 capacity events venue. It was found during the conversion works that the 1930 building was supported over the culvert on heavily corroded iron beams that were at risk of collapse.
