If the client ask for amendment of the contract to perform cost saving to do some changes in the specs. How would you deal with that?

1 Answers

I don't prefer any cost saving unless it is really needful by the client and no way to avoid it due to valuable reasons.

I do seek to have more variations from the client and his engineer / consultant. Less
