What is a Change Request (Change Order)?

Change Requests and Change Orders are very similar, so the process for creating them is the same. A Change Request identifies an area or detail of the construction project that must be changed. These changes usually relate to cost, building requirements, timeline, or some other contractual obligation. Regardless of what is being changed, all parties involved with that aspect of the project must agree to the new terms. If approved, the Change Request may result in a Change Order being issued. Some changes aren’t significant enough to require a Change Order but should still be documented to ensure that all parties agree. A Change Order is an amendment to a construction contract that changes the work required by the contract documents. ConDoc makes it easy to track these changes via the Change Request/Change Order documents.
