Why Our Change Orders Are Three Times Lower Than Industry Average
At Salas O’Brien, we’ve studied our change order rate and discovered that we consistently keep our change orders below 3% of construction costs. This means that on a typical $1 million construction project with 10% contingency, owners would save at least $70,000 in final construction cost alone, just by partnering with Salas O’Brien.
In addition to the savings on construction cost, our methods also have the following benefits:
- Fewer schedule delays
- Predictable employment management
- Positive public reports related to financing and scheduling for public projects
- Public confidence in bond projects and overall staff management of public funding
- Real dollar savings in initial project costs, and even more in operational maintenance and energy costs
