What is Unit Price Billing?

Unit Price Billing is a method used in the construction industry where costs are determined based on agreed-upon rates for specific types of work. This method means you pay for materials and labor based on the quantity used or amount of time expended. For instance, if you're building a skyscraper, payment might be determined by a set price for every square foot of construction rather than a lump sum for the entire project. Unit Price Billing allows for more flexibility as changes occur during construction, with pricing adjustments made according to altered quantities. It provides transparency and can potentially lead to cost savings if actual quantities are less than projected.
