Illinois Guaranteed Maximum Price Construction Contracts Explained

In this article, our Downers Grove construction attorneys explain guaranteed maximum price contracts in construction, including allowances, contingencies, schedules of values, and change orders in GMP contracts. In a guaranteed maximum price contract, the contractor will charge the owner the cost of the labor and materials plus a percentage of that cost for profit. The total cost to the owner may be less than the guaranteed maximum price, but it will not exceed it. Unlike a lump sum contract wherein a contractor is paid a flat fee for the work, the guaranteed maximum price contract allows the owner to potentially save money if the project ends up costing less than estimated.
