EPIC Best Practice Guides

The Association members have worked hard to produce and present guidance that can be used by the industry to support the implementation of Best Practice.  A consequence of this is that the guides have been recognised by the technical publications industry and have won the UK Technical Communication Award 2015 in the category of Best conceptual communication.

 

ECIA have now published 6 Best Practice Guides to assist members in improving performance on both New Build and R&M work by removing the barriers to productivity. The guides explore Best Practice from the initial concept stage through to completion of the work, and the capturing of lessons learned

The summary flyer of the guides is on the 'Working Groups' section of the EPIC part of this website. It aims to assist you in identifying the guide(s) most relevant to you. We’d also ask for your help in pointing your colleagues in the direction of the Guides most appropriate to them.

The Guides were written by ECIA contractor members supported by a range of Clients and the signatory Trades Unions.

All of the guides follow the same format, chapters are clearly presented with an introduction, discussion of the topic and recommendations for best practice.Graphics and flowcharts provide visual summaries of the key issues and each guide concludes with a summary of the recommendations and a checklist.

These guides have been produced by the industry, for the industry, to assist in increasing performance and competitiveness and are being widely circulated to all industry stakeholders.
