ICC Permanent Premises wins NEC Large Project of the Year award


The ICC Permanent Premises project has won the ‘NEC Contracts Large Project of the Year 2015’ award. The winners of the international NEC awards were announced on Monday 20th April 2015 at the inaugural NEC Awards ceremony at the Annual Seminar in London.

NEC award ICC

The theme for the awards was collaboration using NEC3 contracts with particular emphasis on demonstrating good practice through collaboration on a basis of mutual trust and co-operation. The success of this was recognised in the excellent collaboration between ICC (client), Courtys (general contractor) and Brink Groep (project manager).

The judges considered that "the focus was placed on achieving mutual benefits through opportunity workshops and best value for money solutions, which generated trust between the parties. The project team also took an important leap of faith in using an NEC3 target contract for this major project in the Netherlands, in order to support the collaboration strategy."

In addition to winning the Large Project of the Year award, the ICC Permanent Premises project also received the honorable Highly Commended mention (runner up) for the price ‘NEC Client of the Year 2015'.
