The world of construction and bidding presents you with herculean challenges. Organisation, calculation, and compromise is no easy task, and so, the entire process may seem daunting. With this article Infrabazaar.com helps you with the skeletal guideline, and you are sure to be on top of everything you need to do.
The following four steps help you stay on your A-game in this competitive industry.
UNDERSTAND THE CLIENT’S EXPECTATIONS
Walk through your client’s ideas and get a better understanding of their needs and expectations. Look through your client’s vision board, rough sketches, or blueprints if they have any. This will help you gauge the existing conditions of the house, the potential end product, the agreeability of the client, and also help you determine the materials and manpower you may need. Ask any questions you may have. Help your client adapt their visions to their budget, and ensure both parties are on the same page about the requirements.
ITEMIZE THE REQUIRED MATERIALS AND ORGANISE THE PROJECT.
Once you have an understanding of what the project ahead of you will demand, make a list of all the supplies, staff, paperwork, and other required materials. This process usually requires a lot of precision, care, and organisation. Thankfully, bidding software available online makes this process smooth-sailing. They provide existing templates, allow you to make changes easily, and present a simple, intuitive way to manage this mammoth process.
CHALK UP EXTRA EXPENDITURE, AND ENSURE YOU MAKE A PROFIT.
Although it is easy to calculate the cost of all supplies and human resources needed, managing a construction project demands overhead charges. These charges may include the cost of equipment, licensing, office space, and the like. Overhead charges and other miscellaneous costs are the primary culprits of detrimental net losses. It is integral to your company that your final bid includes an adequate profit margin. While it is a good idea to compare your costs with competitors, it is imperative to ensure you do not drive yourself to a loss for the sake of this.
PRESENT THE FINAL BID TO YOUR CLIENT.
Once you’re done working on the plan and costs on your end, present the bid to your client. Make sure they understand and are satisfied with every aspect of it. Clients are usually not experts in the field and may require a fair bit of explanation. Be sure to brief the client about payment-related matters (such as payment in instalments, flexible and fixed prices, etc) as well as provide them with a list of all the supplies needed. Feel free to talk about your suppliers, if the need arises.
