Abstract

In this case study from Scotland, we demonstrate a successful use of the benefits of the NEC3 contract in a situation when only limited project funds are available. Following an action research (AR) methodology and aiming at maximising the value for the Client and the general public from the available funding, an innovative approach was devised and used during the procurement process of a £3 million infrastructure project for stabilisation of a high coastal slope with residential properties at risk from potential instability. Environmental protection, natural disaster risk management, as well as sustainability in the built environment featured highly on the Client/Consultant procurement/design agenda with public participation throughout the duration of the project.
