If building working drawings were perfect and unambiguous, late changes that often take place during construction and habitually causing grave disruption to the project will minimise. Identifying changes and anticipating their penalty can help project teams allay these negative impacts. As a result, a change process model has been proposed to improve this modus operandi, the existence of such process is imperative in order to accomplish the contractual responsibility of cost, time and quality. The methodology involved extensive literature review of existing change order management model. The paper assess how the existing contract provision for change management combined with the utilization of BIM can reduce the impact of changes and manage change from project initiation to project closure. The paper concludes that there isn’t a specific change management procedure obtainable in the Nigerian construction industry; therefore diligently following the steps laid down in each stage of the model will help mitigate the negative impact of change orders.
