All building projects start with design and end with maintenance or in some worst cases, demolition. In the middle of the building life cycle, their lies construction—and contractor bidding serves as a key criteria that you need to factor in to guarantee the success of your building projects.
As an expert engineering consulting firm, our expertise on contractor bidding enable us to work from both ends of the client and the contractor. Our specialized engineers can work for you as a third-party consultant or owner's representative, while contractors also hire us to provide design expertise on ongoing contract bids so they can win more projects effectively.
In the end, it all depends on the legal groundwork of the project contract as mandated by all stakeholders. But for uniformity's sake, our skilled engineers will walk you through each stages of the traditional contractor bidding, or design-bid-build (DBB):
Once design development phase is over, consultants or project managers working on behalf of the client will issue a bid package consisting of construction documents, plans and specifications to all interested contractors. Whether you issue an open or sealed bid, this can go so far as to our engineers marking up quantity take-offs to levelize all incoming contractor bids.
Since all contractor bids are leveled from a baseline reference, we can help you assess which bids meet your most exacting requirements depending on your cost, time and quality constraints. Value-engineering is what you can guarantee from New York Engineers: high-quality, but reasonably-priced contractor bids.
After a thorough contractor bidding evaluation ranging from RFPs to BOMs and construction cost estimation, the project manager or consultants through the client's discretion will draft a letter of intent to the general or multi-prime contractors who successfully meet all technical and commercial compliance of your building project.
From here on out, client awards the contract and formally accepts the submitted bid of the best-among-the-rest contractor. This contract award can still be subject to negotiation, but overall, is inclusive of legal and contract documents, scope of work and early submittals prior to your tenderer's contract execution.
Before contract execution in-situ, general contractors must submit construction deliverables in line with the submittal schedule to request approval from the architectural or consulting firm. All submittals undergo a rigorous review process and quality control under the hands of our meticulous engineers, so you are guaranteed of an optimized building system for your facility.
