Most electrical contractors agree that one of the industry's most vexing problems is the change order. Changes which significantly alter the nature of the work or the materials to be installed are highly disruptive; so are substantial numbers of allegedly "insignificant" changes. In many cases, changes alter the sequence of scheduled activities. Often they require rework of installations, which have already been completed in order to accommodate the new design. Change orders usually divert some manpower and equipment needed for the original contract work. In addition to these expensive impacts on unchanged work, each change order is generally much more expensive to perform than an equivalent amount of work in the basic contract. Understand and minimize these impacts by attending this course.
