URGE Owner Agencies to Provide Financial Relief to Contractors for Extraordinary Material Cost Escalations.

Construction materials cost escalations is the number one issue facing our industry. UCON members have seen prices rise by as much as 50% in the last six months, with prices only continuing to increase. This is not sustainable for contractors who operate in a low-bid and fixed-price contract environment. It is especially risky for small businesses and DBE firms who cannot withstand working for low or no profit margins.
