Important issues to consider when submitting variation claims for construction projects

All too often, the day-to-day reality of workload pressures for managers on a construction project means that variation claims do not always receive the required attention to detail - at least during the critical preparation phase. Practical experience tells us that good research and preparation are the keys to success in variation claims and there is no shortcut. Indeed, close attention to certain key issues can help avoid a badly structured and poorly substantiated submission, and therefore significantly improve a contractor’s chances of securing a positive outcome.
