Concept Building Services is a rapidly growing SME building services company that manages the delivery of a wide range of infrastructure solutions world-wide, from simple pipe repairs to full-scale building construction.

NE Consult has worked with Concept since 2018 providing commercial and contractual advice and training to support their projects in the U.K. and around the world which are mainly procured under NEC or JCT contracts.

These are some examples of work we have done for them:

Contract review: assisting the tender process by reviewing contracts and advising Concept on risks and amendments.

COVID-19: advice in relation to Concept’s rights and obligations
Claims: advice on entitlements to cost, extension of time and loss and expense.

Subcontracting: advice on the management of subcontractors
Training: delivery of training in the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract.

We support other clients in a similar way, effectively acting as their in-house commercial and contractual advisor. We find that our services provide a cost effective solution for SME clients who cannot justify the cost of recruiting a full time member of staff dedicated to this role.
