we are currently helping a client turn a location with 4 properties and 2 owners into one large property. At this point, however, they are listed as separate properties and my organization has lumped these properties under 1 contract with a combined cost. We tried to send a prelim on the property, but it was rejected by the Zlien team because this project has multiple properties and owners. My question is how do we protect ourselves in such a case where the estimate become less reliable when the project is split up by properties, due to the nature of the project? Even further, lets say we could split it up evenly, what happens when all these properties become one? Since we are doing the civil Engineering work, at what point do we classify the properties as one location?
