    I’m curious as well. The only thing I can confirm without a doubt in my mind is that it should be BN and not PR.

    In the Gang Chen CE mock exam, one of the exam solutions explains that in a Cost Plus method, the cost is determined after SD. I have not seen any other reasoning for this though.

    I would think the $ (Cost Of Construction) is both during the course of construction and the final cost at the end of construction, after substantial completion and final completion. Cost + Fixed Fee is basically a project with too many unknowns therefore you can’t determine what the final cost will be until everything is complete. The contractors fee is his fee but the scope is unknown. With regards to when the Contractor is brought on board, I Assumed it’s after BN. I don’t understand the reasoning to why it’s after SD. If it’s after SD then that to me implies that it is a cousin of the Negotiated Select Team with the one difference that Scope is yet unknown. Scope yet unknown ie. Adaptive Reuse.

    About 15 minutes with the book and I run into PR in lieu of BN. I don’t mean to be glib but maybe it’s just too much for any editor?

    Thank you for this thread, I thought I was losing it.

    There are inconsistencies. The chart (page 516) says for Cost Plus Fixed Fee, that the contractor is selected after Schematic Design. However, page 514 says that with this method, the contractor is selected at the completion of contract documents.

    This chart has been driving me crazy for quite a while for all of the reasons above, plus a few more.  I'm so glad I saw this thread.

    Lita -

    See Amber Book's chart for comparison. It's a bit more thorough, and combines the driving factor info from a separate AHPP chart.

    I hope Michael/Amber Book does not mind me posting this (he displays this in one of his free 40 Minutes of Competence videos on YouTube). It's not available only to his paid subscribers, but I'll remove it if it's an issue.
