The theme for this year’s conference is Collaborative Contracting: Fostering Trust and Efficiency in Construction Projects. In 2001, the Tang Report recommended a partnering approach to construction in Hong Kong to improve the delivery of construction projects on time, within budget and met specified quality standards. In 2009, the HK Government introduced the first NEC pilot for the Fuk Man Road Nullah Improvement in Sai Kung. The pilot project was a success. Since then, the Development Bureau alongside various works departments had extended the NEC form to various works categories. Over the years, various private entities have also introduced collaborative contracting. This year’s conference will look at what Hong Kong has learnt so far in running collaborative contracts, issues arising from such contracts and its dispute resolution mechanism.
