Landlord shall insure that the Architect conducts a periodic review (a minimum of once every two weeks) of the progress of construction to ensure compliance with the Plans. Tenant may from time to time request in writing changes to the Plans (a “Change Order”), subject to Landlord’s consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Landlord shall cause Contractor to provide an estimate of any change in the Construction Cost and/or Schedule. Tenant shall have the right to elect whether or not to proceed with the Change Order within five (5) business days after receipt of such estimate.
