A General Contractor who performed construction work for a school district was held to be entitled to recover the cost of changes necessitated by errors in the plans despite the lack of a written change order. The Court held that because the school district supplied the contractor with misleading plans and specifications the school district must pay for the necessary changes. The appellate court stated its ruling was “based on the theory that the furnishing of misleading plans and specifications by the public body constitutes a breach of an implied warranty of their correctness.” G.Voskanian Construction, Inc. v. Alhambra Unified School District (Cal. App. Second Dist., Div. 3; March 29, 2012) 204 Cal.App.4th 981, [139 Cal.Rptr.3d 286].
