TOPIC: The Ethics of Money: Bidding, Payment Applications and Change Orders

Changed conditions on a project is one of the most common, and often most severe obstacles in establishing a mutually beneficial relationship between the engineer, the architect and the contractor.

This presentation provides background on what constitutes a changed condition and how the risk of changed conditions can be mitigated for all three parties, while protecting the interests of the building owner.
