Project Bidding and Award Phase
As an additional service, we can support you in bidding your project. An architect on your side during the bidding phase of home or building construction is of great advantage to you in developing a list of qualified contractors for your bid list and submitting bid packages to bidders. We will assist in reviewing submitted bids, provide analysis, and help to compare the cost figures that you receive from your bidders.
During this phase we will help ensure the contractors you are considering for your construction project are reading the construction documents correctly, and providing accurate bids for your project. Often we will answer questions relating to the plans that ONLY the architect will be able to answer. Sometimes additional pricing options can be developed to save the client money during this phase.
