When preparing a construction budget it is common to simply miss out on items as there are a lot of items to be identified, measured and included for.

A huge item that is constantly missed is unforeseen work. Clients rarely realise that in an old house there can be a lot of rotten timbers, crumbling brickwork that are completely hidden by existing plasterboard. So once the plasterboard is taken away there may be a lot more work to be completed.
It is always best to have a reasonable contingency for unforeseen work within your cost plan just in case.
