Hey everyone - I'll be hosting our monthly podcast, ARE Live, tomorrow at noon central. We'll be talking about a number of topics that relate to the AIA A201 and I'll be joined by guest Emily Epple - one of our virtual workshop instructors. Here's one of the six questions we'll cover if you want to get a head start!
A contractor is working on the demolition of a commercial space according to the demo plan provided by the architect. The contractor notifies the architect that they weren’t anticipating the existing wood flooring to be glued down, and that demolishing the flooring is going to take an additional 2 days of work and will also require an additional $5,000. The contractor notes that the architect’s demolition notes don’t specify that the flooring is glued.
Which of the following are appropriate responses from the architect? Check the two that apply.
- Issue a change order for an additional 2 days to be added to the schedule.
- Issue a change order for an additional $5,000 to be added to the contract price.
- Direct the contractor to proceed with the demolition by issuing a construction change directive.
- Notify the contractor and owner that the conditions don’t warrant an adjustment to the contract time or price.
- Suggest that the owner hire another contractor to demolish the flooring if the contractor won’t demolish it.
- Issue a minor change in the work describing how the flooring should be removed.
