The wish of every construction project owner is to get the project completed ahead or in time and within the allocated budget. Cost of a project escalates due mainly to variations and other claims by a contractor. As such, it is of prime importance for an owner to be aware of techniques for planning and managing project changes and avoiding claims.

Construction is a complex process with the participation of many parties, and it is beneficial for each of the parties to have a more complete understanding of the other parties’ perspectives for better planning and avoiding claims.

A successful completion of a project would be the dream of any construction project owner.
