Following the success of the awards at last year’s NEC conference we are again hosting our annual 2015 BuiltIntelligence NEC People industry awards. The four categories for this year’s awards are as detailed below, with the first two awards winning a prize of £5000 of free eLearning licences from Built Intelligence. If you would like to nominate anyone for any of these categories please email "email@example.com" or download the form by using the link at the bottom of this page:
Closing date for nominations is the 22nd May 2015 with the awards being announced at the conference on the 16th June. Judges will be looking for clear demonstration within each nomination as to why the person/project nominated most demonstrates the values that the NEC3 contracts are trying to encourage and promote:
BuiltIntelligence NEC People “2015 Contractor of the Year”:
This award is to be nominated for by Employers who would like to propose their Contractor for our Contractor of the year award. The award will be given to the Contractor who has most clearly embraced the processes and the spirit of the NEC3 contract to the mutual benefit of the Parties.
BuiltIntelligence NEC People “2015 Employer of the Year”:
This award is to be nominated for by Contractors who would like to propose their Employer for our “Employer of the year" award. The award will be given to the Employer who has embraced the processes and the spirit of the NEC3 contract to the mutual benefit of the Parties.
BuiltIntelligence NEC People “2015 Worst ‘Z’ Clause of the Year”
This most prestigious award will be nominated by anyone who feels that a particular Z clause amendment had the most potential to completely undermine the intent and values of the NEC3 contracts. Unfortunately the winner of this award will remain anonymous to protect the innocent (or in this case the guilty) but the clause itself will have its time in lights as a shining example of how (not) to write an amendment!
