No project is “cast in stone”. Changes can be the result of necessary design modifications, differing site conditions; material/equipment availability, value engineering and events beyond the control of owner, architect or contractor; such as labor unrest, an earthquake, or even weather may impact the construction and cause changes.
A pro-active approach in what constitute a change – the event (cause) and the action (effect) implemented to manage the change needs to be addressed in a timely manner in order for such change to be incorporated into the project scope of work.
