To a contractor in the current economic climate, with low margins, it could be the difference between staying in business and liquidation. The risk-averse behaviour of contractors and risk-neutral behaviour of major clients has been identified elsewhere. A risk-neutral client is assumed to view a £1 loss in the same light as a £1 gain. For a contractor the loss may be perceived as far higher. The effect of this is to make the contractor’s estimate of the cost of a given project greater than that of the client if the responsibility for risk is evenly split between the two parties.
