Re: Questions regarding composite steel form-deck

Or doesn't care.

This is unfortunately one of those situations where the owner has the 
contractor already on site, and whatever the contractor says, that's the 
way it is as far as the owner's concerned.

In this case I am expecting the contractor to tell the owner that this is a 
 change order, because he was expecting the engineer to provide all of this 
 information. And the owner will just take that as gospel.
