Change Order

A Change Order is a formal document that modifies the original contract terms between the client and contractor. It may include changes to the scope of work, project design, materials, schedules, or the contract price. Change orders are common in construction projects due to unforeseen circumstances, client requests, or adjustments needed after the initial planning phase. They require agreement from all parties involved and often result in adjustments to the project’s cost and completion date. Effective management of change orders is crucial to maintaining project timelines, budgets, and relationships between clients and contractors.
