Over budget

After the builder finished bidding and negotiation with all subcontractors, the cost ended up being over budget by almost 15%. Because the builder is an architect-led design firm, one advantage is that the architect and builder are always on the same page. When the architect and builder are separate entities, this isn’t always the case resulting in cost overruns and design compromises during construction. So design changes are being made as we speak to bring the budget back in line and the construction has been delayed a couple of weeks.
