NECA Endorses MCAA Change Order Publication

May 8, 2020

The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) has given its full endorsement to the 2020 edition of the Mechanical Contractors Association of America’s (MCAA) publication Change Orders, Productivity, Overtime—A Primer for the Construction Industry.

NECA endorsed the contents of this publication as being as applicable to the electrical construction industry as the mechanical piping and plumbing trades, furthering its use to benefit the memberships of NECA and MCAA and the industry as a whole. This publication has become a standard in the construction industry and is widely relied upon by mechanical and other specialty contractors, attorneys in construction practices and consultants. Its chapters were peer-reviewed by a panel of MCAA contractors.

“This is an incredibly valuable publication for our members,” NECA CEO David Long said. “Our trades have a lot in common, and I look forward to working with MCAA again in the future.”

The 2020 Edition of Change Orders, Productivity, Overtime contains a new chapter that discusses the essential concept of sharing the CPM schedule in its native form between all of the major trades on a construction project. It is the MCAA’s goal to make the construction management and scheduling process more transparent and effective on today’s complex and challenging construction projects, to the benefit of all of the parties to a construction contract.

“MCAA appreciates NECA’s continued endorsement of this publication,” MCAA Chief Executive Officer Timothy J. Brink said. “The members of both organizations benefit from the partnership and spirit of cooperation that exists between MCAA and NECA. MCAA looks forward to working with NECA to continue that partnership as we move forward.
