Change orders are a result of a change in conditions or scope of work on a project. They are often due to unforeseen factors which could have been identified during the design phase. Small investments in more comprehensive investigations and design can prevent expensive change orders during the project.
3D Modeling enables designers to avoid potential design conflicts and constructability issues, and as a result save both the owner and contractor the effort of working through change orders.
Other Intelligent Paving technologies allow Agencies to monitor the entire project while recording digital records for quality assurance and allow Contractors to monitor continuously for quality control to accurately track the construction process for more clear and reliable assessment as to whether change orders are warranted.
