How to find and engage an Engineer to the Contract

Finding an EtC

Choosing an EtC from our Panel of recognised EtCs will help to give you assurance they are professional and ethical in their work. These EtCs have been assessed by the Steering Group as having the professional skills, experience, and mana to be highly effective in the role.

Please consult our list of recognised EtCs to find someone whose experience best suits the scale and type of project you are undertaking.

Please let the EtC know that you found them through their membership of this Panel.

Engaging an EtC

The engagement of a Panel member as an EtC is a private contractual matter between the principal and the EtC. This includes negotiating and deciding upon remuneration.

It is useful to begin discussions with your EtC as early in the procurement process as you are able. This will allow the EtC to be closely involved in developing the contract documentation.

All parties engaging in the Panel’s services, including Panel members, are expected to apply the Construction Sector Accord’s (CSA) Guiding Principles. Ideally, contracting parties engaging the Panel’s services will have signed the CSA’s Contract Partnering Agreement (although this is not a pre-requisite).
