Walker Sime, the North-West based construction consultancy, has invested in its people through the NEC3 scheme, with ten members of the team having achieved ECC Project Manager Accreditation status.
Managed and accredited by the Institute of Civil Engineering, the NEC3 accreditation recognises good project management skills and principles and supports the Institute’s vision to become the global leader in promoting best practice procurement of works, services and supply.
Walker Sime work with both public and private sector clients and NEC3 contracts have become particularly prevalent in the public sector, being used for nearly all projects procured by national and local government bodies and agencies.
Launched in 2005, NEC contracts have produced major benefits for national and international projects, in terms of time, cost savings and improved quality, and helped to procure high-profile projects such as the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Mark Bond, Head of Quantity Surveying Infrastructure said,
“NEC Project Management is at the very heart of successful project delivery and our commitment to training our staff not only gives them the necessary confidence and skills to deliver, it also ensures that our clients’ project and commercial risks are managed with an extremely safe pair of hands. We will continue to work with the Institute of Civil Engineering to get even more of our team accredited over the next year.”
So, all that remains is to give a big shout out to the fully qualified NEC3 team – well done to Adam Blasbery, Ben Lavelle, Bobbie Brown, Carolann Watson, Francis Frimpong, Gavin Prothero, Mike Humphreys, Tim Gardner, Kevin Lowes and James Finglas.
