The EduTech Q&A

As regards the regulation of professionals not getting involved in construction relationships with contractors, how does one reconcile the Code of Conduct with the following:

  1. NEC3 Contracts: ‘partnering’ option between professional and contractor?
  2. Design-and-Build Contracts: Joint Venture between a professional and a contractor. Under what conditions may a JV be possible or not possible under the professional Code of Conduct?
  3. What about ‘conflict of interest’ if there is indeed a partnering relationship on e.g. an NEC3 or Design-and-Build contract and at the same time both parties are also involved in another JBCC contract?
