Abstract

Change order is a frequent phenomenon in most construction projects. However, these changes can be controlled when their causes are known. This report is set to find out the various techniques through which this phenomenon can be controlled most especially in the roadway construction projects in south of Iran. In order to reduce this occurrence to the minimum, certain mechanisms have been identified as being very effective and these are clearly the project objectives and scope of change order of work, provision of complete documentation, finalize the design during the design phase. The outcomes of this study would provide necessary information that may be used by employers and contractors to minimize cases of change orders in construction projects. Moreover, it is anticipated that the results of this study will assist greatly in reducing the total cost of construction works and the time of completion of the project hence increase the efficiency of the work.
