All About Efficiency

Dear Mr. Ethics,

As a contractor is it unethical for us to change the design of the architect in order to correct a design error without first telling the architect? We find it to be easier to make the change and then let the architect know about what we did. We seem to be able to keep the project moving by this approach. We do not have to wait days for a response.

Regards, All About Efficiency


While you may be acting ethically I am not sure your being as smart.



Dear Efficiency,

As long as you're notifying everyone (architect and owner) your acting ethically. While you may be acting ethically I am not sure your being as smart. What happens if the owner rejects your change? Also, I am sure you're contracts call for you to give the architect and owner pre-notice of any changes before you make any change if you want to be compensated for same. Give the owner and architect a heads up and get their responses before you go ahead with the changed work.

Regards, Mr. Ethics
