Who cares what the trend is on other projects- Break the trend and do your job: get true construction costs on the front end and stick to it. If you can’t control it, you need to leave the profession and resign.
Same problem with education as it is today: Administrators: input from teachers is most important, set goals and let teachers teach and crack down on unruly students. Get more parents to participate in education of their kids. Start teaching our kids it is their right to learn, be appreciative of who they are and that they control their future in this country. Pay teachers a decent salary and get rid of the slackers.

Hey tackboard

You must be a little slow. Construction costs are on the way up after a number of years of stagnation. Poore IS doing his job getting a GUARANTEED MAXIMUM PRICE that caps the total but allows for cost savings if the rise in construction cost is lower than the max pricing.

Perhaps you could use a little adult education. Try remedial math!
