Approved designs should be followed with any changes being approved prior to implementation. The construction manager may authorize that minor variations in the work do not involve a contract amount adjustment. Work variations should also be consistent with overall intent of the design and documentation of such authorizations should be maintained. Changes that affect the contract amount and time should only occur through written change order(s) executed by the owner. All such requests include relevant drawings and specifications prepared by the design professional. The contractor then submits detailed information regarding the price and time adjustments for the proposed change order work for approval by the owner. The construction manager provides the design professional with a copy of all contractor requests for changes that are deemed to be valid but deviate from the original contract documents. The construction manager then provides the Owner with recommendations regarding each request after examining the request and comments provided by the design professional.
