When building project goes wrong
Obviously, you shouldn’t take on a project with a poorly defined scope or incomplete plans and specs. All construction methods, finishes, and materials should be determined long before you sign a contract and begin work.The construction contract should clearly state how any work outside of the original scope should be requested and documented. No additional work should commence until a written change order has been executed and authorized by the client. Additional costs and timeline extensions should be determined and agreed upon. Don’t forget to work with your subs to determine how change orders might impact their schedule before signing off on additional work.
