ASG Conference 2018 


Venue: Devonport House, King William Walk, London. SE10 9JW

Set in the imposing Devonport House in Greenwich, we will feature the new FAC-1 Framework Alliance Contract and the TAC-1 Term Alliance Contract both already delivering impressive results. FAC-1 is the only standard form framework alliance contract available in the market and its flexibility means it can be used with any contract form across all sectors.
This Conference builds on recommendations in the Government Construction Sector Deal, the Hackitt Report, Procuring for Value and the P13 Blueprint, and ill illustrate how using the right contracts can make collaboration work better
Keynote speakers Samantha Ulyatt and Kevin Murray from Crown Commercial Service will explain how they are using FAC-1 to deliver a new generation of consultant and contractor framework alliances
Workshops will analyse the improved value, efficiencies and challenges arising under and on collaborative programmes such as the Kier/Surrey highways alliance, and through the off-site manufacturing strategies developed by LHC, the Football Foundation and the Construction Leadership Council. We will compare multi-party working under PPC2000 and under the new NEC4 Alliance Contract, and we will be entertained and inspired by marathon runner Tom Boother.
