At Tecnicas Reunidas we were aware of the complexity of the NAECI working rule agreement and the impact it could have on our subcontractors if they didn’t have prior experience working on NAECI projects.

We were keen to maintain a high level of productivity and good industrial relations on the project, so were pleased to be able to utilise NRL’s extensive NAECI expertise to establish a compliance service. Their project team worked well with our subcontractors who were inexperienced in working under NAECI, helping with their introduction onto the project. They conducted competency checking prior to the mobilisation of the workforce and assisted in the induction process onto the site which helped improve the flow of workers onto the project.
