Construction contracts differ from most legal agreements in that they expect and plan for changes. The purpose of this white paper is to highlight best practices of identifying and managing changes that might occur on a constructing project, and provide a process to effectively manage changes on construction projects. It is by no means exhaustive or complete, but does present the basics of a workable and proven process for dealing with changes. Although the terminology used and contract documents referenced are geared toward traditional design-bid-build public improvement projects, the process and principles presented are applicable and adaptable to other kinds of delivery methods or types of projects.
