Unfortunately a contract is binding once it is fully executed by both parties.
If there are additional costs that are not addressed in the contract, and the contract provides for addendums due to unforseen events/permits etc, then that can be added to the contract. This is called a change order and most contracts authorize this.
If the contract is silent then unfortunately the contract as written is binding.

If there is no provision that would be correct; the point of the contract is for both parties to be able to rely on it.
The plaintiff can sue for the "benefit of the bargain" so for example, if a defendant breaches the contract and plaintiff has to hire a third party to perform, if that third party charges more, those damages are recoverable so plaintiff receives the benefit of the bargain.
