CQP 201: Field Design Change


Rev , Date

PURPOSE To establish the scope, responsibilities, procedures, and forms affecting and documenting changes proposed by the Contractor to address situations discovered after the design package has been Released for Construction. SCOPE Design changes initiated by the Contractor to documents Released for Construction are completed under a Field Design Change (FDC). Examples of Contractor-initiated situations that require modifications to the original RFC documents include: unanticipated site conditions, alternative construction method/material proposals from the Contractor, among many others. RESPONSIBILITIES The Contractor generates Field Design Change requests. FDCs should be filtered through the Construction Manager (or his designee), and forwarded to Document Control for distribution to the Designer. The Post-Design Manager is responsible for responding to all FDC requests. The Post-Design Manager will facilitate the review of all FDCs according to the requirements of the QMP. The Construction Manager is responsible for controlling the construction activities once the FDC has been documented to avoid further work activities that may require removal or rework as a result of the FDC disposition. The Construction Manager will keep the Project Manager, the Post-Design Manager, and the Department apprised of the impacts to ongoing construction operations as a result of the anticipated design change. The Construction Quality Manager will be responsible for notifying field quality personnel in charge of assessing the work for conformance with the Quality Plan of the upcoming changes to the RFC documents. Field quality personnel will monitor the work elements impacted by the FDC, and report on observed activities, which may be contrary to the intended modifications. MnDOTs Project Manager or Construction Manager will sign each FDC prior to Release for Construction. MnDOT reserves the right to take ten (10) days of review time for each FDC.

{CONTRACTOR} District X PROCEDURE Rev

XXXX Design-Build Project S.P. XXXX CONSTRUCTION QUALITY PLAN {date} 12 of 85

The procedures outlined below are to be used to process all Field Design Changes. Revisions may require modifications to the RFC plans and/or specifications, and can be classified according to the following: Level 1 Request for Existing Conditions Adjustments (Considered Minor in scope). These revisions are adjustments to match project elements with conditions encountered in the field. They are limited to minor dimensional and layout adjustments to released design documents, and do not impact future construction and installation. Level 2 Request for Adjustments to Match As-Constructed Details (Considered Minor in scope, but require review for major implications). These accommodate specific details of work elements already constructed by the Contractor. They are limited to dimensional and layout adjustments to design documents released for construction, and do not impact future construction and installation. Level 3 Request for Revision to Design Documents Released for Construction (Considered Major in scope). These are revisions to RFC documents that involve design changes that do not deviate from project requirements, but are considered to be major in scope. Examples include revisions to major dimensions and layout, materials changes, or design revisions to accommodate adjustments to the work. Revisions of this nature may impact several disciplines, and will undergo a review process prior to rerelease. Level 4 Request for Deviation from Project Requirements (Considered major in scope). These are revisions to RFC documents that involve changes that deviate from Contract requirements. The proposed revisions should involve an isolated part of the project, and should be fully justified by the Contractor prior to MnDOT consideration. Revisions of this nature may impact several disciplines, and will undergo a review process prior to re-release. Specific procedures follow: 1. FDCs are initiated by the Construction Manager (or his designee). The first point of contact for the initiator is Document Control, who will identify and reserve the next number in the FDC log. 2. Document Control will issue an FDC Notice providing the base information of the revisions requested. The FDC will be transmitted to the Design Manager or the Post-Design Manager (or his designee) for action. 3. The scope of the FDC will be thoroughly analyzed by the Design Manager or the Post-Design Manager to confirm the circumstances described in the FDC Notice.

The Design Manager or the Post-Design Manager will enlist additional information from field personnel as necessary to clearly define the scope and detail of the revisions required, as well as to identify the schedule for FDC resolution. 4. If plan revisions are necessary, all design changes to plans, specifications, calculations, and reports will be sealed by a Minnesota licensed Engineer. All design work will conform to the QC checking procedures governing design as identified in other sections of the QMP. 5. Plan and specification revisions classified as Major (includes Level 3 and 4 revisions and occasionally Level 2 revisions) will be subject to a design review and approval process similar to that for the original design. The Design Manager or the Post-Design Manager will classify FDC requests as minor or major, and will determine the scope of plan review necessary. 6. The FDC form will be completed by the Design Manager or the Post-Design Manager or his designee. This summary form will identify the reason for the change, the revisions made, the specifications and plan sheets modified. 7. The completed FDC form and any plan revisions will be returned to Document Control for duplication and documentation, and will be forwarded to the Construction Manager accompanied by a Re-Release of Drawing transmittal. DISPOSITION 1. All check prints and design calculations are stored in Document Control after the plans have been approved by the Design Manager or the Post-Design Manager.
