    PUBLIC WORKS

    Change Orders & Extra Work

    A change order or extra work claim usually involves a contractor's request for additional compensation beyond the contract price and/or for an extension of time within which it is contractually required to complete a project. All such claims are governed by the specific provisions of the contract; therefore, it is incumbent upon the owner and the contractor to be completely familiar not only with all of the terms of the contract itself but also with all of the contract documents that are typically incorporated therein by reference. The construction process is very complex with labor, material and equipment demands having to converge at the site in a precisely timed and orchestrated manner. There are innumerable moving parts, personalities and pitfalls that can cause even the best planned projects to screech to a halt with huge financial consequences for all involved. Construction is very technical and dynamic with many events occurring beyond the control of any party and despite efforts to clearly assign risk and responsibility through contracts there are inevitably circumstances that arise which challenge the parties and may result in significant disputes.  Hunt Ortmann’s attorneys have successfully handled hundreds of disputes over change orders and requests for extra work on behalf of both owners and contractors.
