As the engineer or architect on a project, you will likely be asked to review change orders submitted by contractors and/or the owner. But, how do you determine whether a change is really a contract change? And why would someone request a change for work already shown on a drawing? In this course - the second in a 3-part series on Change Orders - we answer the question "Is this really a change?".

There are numerous reasons why a change might be requested for work already depicted in the contract documents. The contractor might have overlooked the work in the drawings. The owner or contractor may perceive a "better way" to do things. Or the product may not be constructible as shown on the drawings.

This course will show you, as the engineer or architect, how to determine whether a request for change is really a change or whether it's just a clarification. You will learn what types of errors and omissions constitute legitimate changes. And you will learn how to respond to requests for change orders.
