I know that when estimating a job as opposed to a quoting for a job that you should be allowed a little increase of around 10%. But have you ever tried asking for one. The same as yourself I never even bothered to ask because I learnt from experience what the answer would be.

What I found annoying was that Councils & Government departments were the worst. So I just don't understand how they get these large increases. Do you know when they demolished Bingley Hall and the old Brewery for the NIA. The price that won the tender was stupid. On completion of the works there was still a large square tower left in the middle of the site. When the contractor was asked why it was still standing he replied "because I haven't priced to demolish it" on checking the schedules this was found to be true. So they said to him without asking for a price first "you had better carry on". He charged them more to demolish that tower than he did to clear the whole site. There wasn't a thing they could do but pay up.
