Course description

Determining Entitlement for Construction Change Orders

Ensure the change order process works well for you and your team.

With the new infrastructure bill, the amount of construction across the country is about to explode. More funding means more projects. And with that, you and your team will face even more of what is a common issue on nearly all construction projectschange orders. Some change orders are relatively straightforward, while others may be more complex to evaluate. Either way, determining whether a change order should be granted is all about entitlement. Having a fundamental understanding of what a change to a contract is and how your contract determines whether there is entitlement to recover for that change is crucial for dealing with this explosion in construction work.

This course will instruct both the owner and contractor side how to ensure the change order process works well for them and their teams. For owners, this material will provide you with core contract interpretation principles and detail what a contractor must do, by contract, to recover for a claimed change. From a contractors perspective, the one thing you can do to ensure youre in the best position to have your change order approved is to provide a clear and persuasive explanation to the owner for why you are entitled to recover for that change. This material will give you those tools.
