Change orders are an unfortunate necessity

What you need to know about construction defects

When you hired a general contractor to oversee the construction of your home, you expected him or her to make sure that the final product was structurally sound and without defect.

Understanding the Critical Path - Change Orders

The Critical Path is a construction law concept rooted in the proper scheduling and administration of construction projects. A critical path schedules a set of project activities and is commonly used during the construction process to manage the progress of the project. Generally, the critical path lists (1) all activities required to complete the project, (2) the expected timeframe for the activity and (3) how one activity depends on another. Any delay of an activity on the critical path can directly impact the project completion. Michael L. Feinstein, P.A. is the premier Ft. Lauderdale construction lawyer who can review contracts to ensure critical path concepts are adequately and accurately contained in the contract.
