Construction projects are risky even for experienced Owners. The best approach for reducing potential disputes is during the planning and pre‐construction phases. When things don’t go as planned you need someone who will be your advocate. Our approach to successful change order and claims review includes:
- Enforcement of provisions in the contract that require work proceed while the dispute is under review.
- Ensure that the change order or claim is submitted in accordance with the contract.
- Thoroughly review related documents including the plans, specifications, contract and all addendums/bulletins to make sure that the claim is valid.
- Minimize cost and schedule impacts by promptly reviewing and responding to claims and contractor concerns.
