Over the course of long-term projects, inflation of material prices often results in disputes between owners and contractors. Material and labor escalation clauses can be used as contractual tools to account for pricing adjustments due to changes in the prices of materials, while forensic material escalation analysis can be performed to retroactively quantify material cost adjustments in a manner equitable to both owners and contractors.

    Using various pricing indexes and historical data, CPC+ Consulting Group can construct historical pricing profiles for construction materials. Our material escalation analysis is often a helpful tool in conjunction with managing the budget.
