As you examined this week, the construction manager is responsible for managing and maintaining all documentation associated with a given construction project. Chief among the documentation is the construction contract, which is a living document that is reviewed constantly and revised, when necessary, throughout a project.
Imagine that you are the construction manager for the construction of a 20-story office building in your local downtown area. The building’s architect has recently suggested a feasible change to the design of the building, and the building’s owner has approved the change. As the existing contract describes the work required for the previously approved building, the design change will require a revised contract.
With this scenario in mind, research the process to legally change a construction project in your locale (New Jersey). What steps should you take to legally change the contract?
In a 300- to 500-word paper, provide an analysis of the steps necessary to change a construction contract in your community.
