Construction contract terms are a complex jumble of what and what-nots that need to be closely followed by the contractor before any work can be started. When work starts, more often than not, there’s bound to be changes in the work that could potentially disrupt the project. It could be anything from a change of schedule, a change of plans, or, worse, a change of the overall blueprint, which means taking down or demolishing what was partially finished.
When contractors hear of the words change order, most would automatically fear the worst and think of major changes in the work detail. Change order has different meanings and could mean anything from a contract amendment to changes in price due to fluctuation in prices of raw materials and the change in specification of work in progress.
A change order, of course, is being done only after both contractor and client reach a bilateral agreement to effect such changes. A change order, however, must always follow the requirements of the original contract unless the changes needed are so big that the original specifications have to be totally discarded.

Identifying Changes and Considerations
For contractors, it’s very important to be careful in identifying changes in specifications and designs. He must refer to the original contract and refer to any earlier amendments when these are available and compare these with the new designs and any new modifications being done. Considerations must be made to include other factors that can affect the change order.
In large construction projects, a lot of aspects of the work are being passed on to subcontractors who may pose some problems to the contractor. If one of the subcontractors decide to ask for an increase in pricing of certain aspects of the labor, the main contractor may be obligated to pay without asking the client for an increase for himself. This is because he has already signed the change order and does not have room for flexibility to effect changes on the agreement anymore. He may just have to consider and charge it to acceptable loss on his part. That’s why it’s equally important for contractors to extend their profit margin before signing the contract to leave room for unexpected changes.
