What does PS and PC Mean?

PS stands for Provisional Sum and PC stands for Prime Cost Item. A is an allowance that is included in your building contract for labour and materials when you builder cannot accurately quote the costs involved with a particular part of the build. For example – Your builder may including a Provisional Sum allowance for the foundations of your new home, as until they start digging the soil, they cannot confirm what is below the surface. A Item is an allowance in the building contract for an item that you have not yet selected. For example – Your front door may be a Prime Cost Item. The cost of the labour for the installation has already been allowed for, but the cost for the actual door has only been estimated as the selection has not yet been made.
