The Early Warning ensures the “spirit of mutual trust and co-operation” is upheld during the lifecycle of a construction project as required by Clause 10.1.
The process is simple. As stated in NEC3: Clause 16.1 or NEC4: Clause 15.1
“The Contractor and the Project Manager give an early warning by notifying the other as soon as either becomes aware of any matter which could:
· Increase the total of the Prices,
· Delay Completion,
· Delay meeting a Key Date or
· Impair the performance of the works in use”
