Rank: UC2 Brainery Purple Belt I
Change Orders are never simple, especially in Millwork. You think they are, but they’re not.
Sometimes a simple change of a few inches results in needing completely different core materials.
Metals right now are crazy because we can only get certain sizes, what’s worse is that it varies from week to week, month to month on what’s available.
For this one job we’re doing right now, we were able to get 3 x 10’s of Bronze sheets when we bid the job, but now that we’re getting to build it, we can only get 4 x 10’s. It changes the whole takeoff and order process. We might even have to revise the shop drawings because where we would have needed to put a seam in a 39″ wide opening (because we would have needed 2 panels), we can now do in one panel. We also now have a lot more waste to contend with.
