Forum Title: Contingencies
Quick question, currently doing the largest remodel I have ever done through my company. I bid as fixed price but showed detail SOV. Do you guys account for(hidden or not in bid) contingencies in order to avoid change ordering to death from day one? I am running into existing conditions left and right, one major issue and many many smaller ones. Obviously my proposal reflects work per plans and price may change upon opening walls. But getting a lot of flack from client, everything is 100% legitimate and he agrees typically. I am just wondering if itís worth accounting for a contingency and risk losing a job via being an even higher(-weíre charging enough already right?!!) bidder, in order to avoid the inevitable first few change orders on project. Also sort of curious as to how widespread or not the practice is.
