Why Our Change Orders Are 3X 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
