The Construction Contract Administration Knowledge Community (CCA) has been established to help our members better understand the issues, actions and resultant impact of the decisions required in this often neglected part of Project Delivery. It is our goal to provide clear answers to issues of concern to the Institute’s membership and share case studies and best practices. We further hope to provide guidance and direction in developing guidelines for new and evolving approaches to Project Delivery as well as guidance in the continuing education of our emerging young professionals.
The call for volunteer terms starting in January 2024 is now open! Learn more about joining the CCA leadership group, or learn about other volunteer opportunities across the organization.

By Bill Schmalz, FAIAConstruction delays will almost always result in change order requests, and as architects, on most projects we may be obligated to review them not only for the requested additional time or money (or both) but also for whether the claim is justified. To determine justification, we need to understand the two categories of delay: inexcusable and excusable.
