Upon receipt of a Construction Change Directive or Owner Field Directive, Contractor shall promptly proceed with the change in the Work involved (including implementing any reductions or accelerations in the Work) and advise Owner of the Contractors agreement (in which case Contractor shall sign and return the Construction Change Directive) or disagreement with the method, if any, provided in the Construction Change Directive for determining the proper adjustment, if any, in the Guaranteed Maximum Price or Contract Time. Contractor agrees to immediately, when directed in writing by Owner, perform the change in Work diligently and without delay.
