Changes always occur in buildings at any stage of their life cycle. In this paper, particular attention is paid to changes that occur very early on this process, sometimes between bidding and very initial construction stages, in the context of public procurement and building. The research is based on the total building stock of the Federal Institute Sul-rio-grandense, in Brazil, which holds presently 14 campuses and more than 120 buildings. Accumulated experience has demonstrated that the prototypical buildings - educational or administrative - designed to be repeated often undergo alterations. The reasons for such changes are identified, along with their impact on the functionality, service life and future maintenance of such assets.
