A. Get the best trades bids by being listed as a prime contractor!
First: Project owners want to know who is planning to bid their job as a Prime contractors. Often pre-qualification is required to bid as Prime. Prime contractors should always contact owners and be added to the bid list.
Second: We get our bid lists from the project owner a few days before the bid date. If you would like to be added to our bidders list sooner, and you are not a Virtual Plan Room Subscriber, send us an email and we’ll make sure you’re added!
