Managing Change in Your Construction Projects
Change is the one constant in construction, affecting all areas of the project lifecycle. Capturing those changes quickly and efficiently is imperative to avoid impacting the scope, schedule, and budget of your project.
We designed Construction Viz to ensure it is easy for organizations to identify, account for, and address critical changes. For example, our lineup of Construction Viz Form Apps includes everything you need for effective change management:
- Mobile and offline support – You need to capture and document change-related issues quickly. Our mobile-responsive construction project forms allow you to collect data from any device wherever you are, even without an internet connection.
- Streamlined workflow – Construction Viz improves your response efficiency to changes with powerful form components giving you the ability to attach files, create automated routing and approval, generate revisions, and capture schedule information.
- End-to-end visibility – Keep stakeholders informed and ensure that your team is completing change mitigation tasks on-time with Construction Viz’s built-in dashboards and robust reporting tools.
- Line-item tracking – You want to make sure that nothing slips through the cracks. All our project forms incorporate metadata, giving you line-item visibility of work breakdowns, cost codes, specifications, assets, and any other custom variables you need.

Risk Form App
Capturing and Prioritizing Risks and
Opportunities that can Impact your Projects
Risks on a project can be a proactive indicator of upcoming changes. The Construction Viz Risk Form App enables you to capture and prioritize the probability, impact, and method of mitigation for potential risks. Integrated reports and dashboards display risks and opportunities, allowing you to track how these changes might affect your projects.
Request for Information Form App
Identifying Questions and Responses as Potential Project Changes
Sometimes change can originate from questions that arise during the lifecycle of a project. Our Construction Viz Request for Information (RFI) Form App is designed to highlight when questions or responses will impact a project’s cost or schedule. The final RFI form serves as historical supporting documentation for change order requests and change orders.
Change Order Request Form App
Efficient Handling of Change Order Requests
When a contractor identifies a necessary change, they must submit a formal request to the owner for review and approval before execution. The Construction Viz Change Order Request (COR) Form App simplifies this process, adding the ability to pull in the contractor’s commitments from their Schedule of Values (SOV). Having this information at their fingertips makes it quick and easy for the contractor to add existing line items from a commitment or propose new ones.
Pay Application Form App
Tracking and Accounting for Change Orders
Unlike a change order request, change orders are executed contractual commitments that add pending amounts to the SOV at a line-item-level of detail. Construction Viz streamlines this process, ensuring that once the owner approves a change order, the pending amounts will increase the commitment values and only then be available for payment via our Pay Application Form App.
