Modern contracts are complex and expensive to administer. Our group member CEMAR makes sophisticated contract management simple by combining industry-leading knowledge and expertise.
All multi-party projects will use contracts between parties; traditionally these have been managed as paper processes or through electronic document management. Developed by industry practitioners, CEMAR is focussed on the contractual events and helps unlock value by removing the administrative burden on project teams and mitigating the risk of dispute and litigation.
CEMAR is easily deployed with off the shelf modules for managing standard contracts such as FIDIC and NEC. FIDIC is a suite of contracts developed by the International Federation of Consulting Engineers, favoured by the majority of PPP projects in the EU and most of the infrastructure spending by development banks around the world. NEC is a family of collaborative contracts developed by the Institution of Civil Engineers and mandated for public works in the UK and Hong Kong.
CEMAR provides the secure and effective audit trail trusted by clients delivering over £75bn of works and services.
