An NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) Option C (target contract with activity schedule) is being used to procure a major flood protection scheme in the New Territories of Hong Kong. By including option X22 on early contractor involvement (ECI), considerable savings have been achieved on the initial target price and programme. It was the first time the Drainage Services Department had used option X22 on early contractor involvement (ECI) to allow changes to the winning bid for target cost and programme on such a major project. The project involves construction of an automatic 60 m long flood barrier across the Yuen Long drainage canal or ‘nullah’ where it flows into the Shan Pui River, together with a stormwater pumping station, control centre and associated electrical and mechanical works. #hongkong
