The Contractor is required to complete the Design Stage Services for the firm-fixed-price set forth in the Contract Price Schedule. If the Government exercises the option for the Construction Stage Services, the contractor shall complete the Construction Stage Services at or below the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). The CMc is responsible for confirming all existing conditions that are readily accessible for viewing, investigating, surveying, scanning, or otherwise knowable. The CMc is responsible for recommending design stage investigative demolition where such efforts may help identify the work required to complete the project.
