What Are Pre-Bid Services?
SBE’s mission through pre-bid services is to maintain accurate, up-to-date information on projects as they proceed through the design phase. Pre-Bid information includes project name, location, design phase and anticipated bid date. We also try to include any other important information we can find, such as: master plans, preliminary drawings, site studies, etc.
The planroom staff updates information as soon as it is provided in order to avoid the chance that contrac-tors and subcontractors are misinformed or overlook information all together. Information is tracked back to a legitimate source to verify the accuracy of what is published. SBE remains committed to helping mem-bers gain a competitive edge.
What are some Benefits of Pre-Bid Information?
- Pre-Bid Reporting facilitates open communication from concept through completion of projects.
- Provides opportunity for suppliers and manufacturers to recommend new materials that may be included in the contract documents.
- Helps establish environmental needs, testing services required, permits required and specialty equip-ment needed early on, so that potential bidders are aware of the requirements prior to committing themselves to the project.
- Contractors can bid with a higher degree of confidence and there is less chance of hidden costs or problems that can really impact the bottom line.
