This event qualifies for one maintenance point towards renewal of your BOC Level I or II certification.
Change orders occur for a multitude of reasons: changes in project scope such as products, equipment and finishes; design errors and omissions; unforeseen conditions; and deleted or added work outside the original scope of work. In addition to increasing construction costs, the negotiation of these inevitable nuisances is time consuming, can turn combative and is an administrative burden to facility owners.
This webinar will focus on the challenges of change orders and the best practices to control the risks associated when change orders occur. Paul Schreyer of The Gordian Group and John Alfred, Supervising Facilities, Senior Project Manager for Riverside County, California will delve into the impact of change orders on construction projects from the perspectives of a solution provider and an owner. Their broad scope of experience will provide attendees with valuable knowledge and insight to the change order process. Schreyer will discuss trends and potential solutions, and Alfred will share his experiences and challenges with change orders and what caused him to seek out solutions.
