Construction Fee Options
Stipulated sum: Fixed price based on construction cost, overhead, markup and risk
   involved. This arrangement may appeal to the client who insists on a fixed price. (Price
   includes only items included on the contracted cost breakdown.)
Cost plus percentage of cost: Percentage of construction cost and overhead. This
   arrangement may appeal to the client who wants to exert more control over details of
   the project. But it requires considerable attention to paperwork by the client and/or
   client’s representative.

LB Contractors & Company Inc. and all of its subcontractors carry all necessary
policies, including:
