This short section deals with ownership of plant and materials. We need to remember again that NEC3 ECC does not use the word ‘plant’ in the traditional sense of contractor’s plant such as excavators and dumpers. Plant and materials are defined in clause 11.2(12) as items ‘intended to be included in the works’. Hence, plant could include boilers, electrical panels, an overhead crane and so on. There can be project situations where it is advisable for the employer to secure ownership of plant which is off-site. Such plant could, for example, be expensive pieces of equipment before they are brought to site, or, for materials, perhaps a large quantity of pipes when there is a long delivery of such pipes because of a national shortage of production relative to demand.
