"Quality you can build on."          
Guaranteed Maximum
The cost is guaranteed not to exceed an agreed dollar value.
Time and Materials
We are paid for labor time and cost of materials. Appropriate where the scale or precise challenges of the project cannot be clear at the start.
Competitive Bid
We are awarded a 'lump sum' contract for our services as a result of a price competition based on client-provided contract documents.
Unit Price
Each item is priced according to a previously mutually agreed price schedule. Appropriate to 'fast track' construction jobs of limited scope, such as office fit-ups and moves for single employees or small groups: typically jobs below an agreed dollar value, such as $15,000.
