Variations are an essential part of any building project. Project variations fall into two categories. The first can be design/construction philosophy changes that affect existing contract or modifications requested by the client.
The second is project oversights or internal changes that do not involve a change in design/construction philosophy or affect existing contracts. It is vital that both these aspects be properly controlled to ensure that project run on schedule and budget.
