Whats Your Payment Schedule When Material Is More Then 50% Of The Job, And All Can Be Done At Once?

How would you structure the payment schedule on this job: We are wiring up a building with access control/cameras, etc.. It is an existing building and in theory, the job can be done from start to finish over a few weeks (as long as it takes us).

It is a pretty large job at about $100k with about $65k of it being material. Normally I do 50% depost and the rest when done, but in this case the 50% is not going to even cover the material. What do you suggest?

Thank you
