You have now been marketing to General Contractors and Project Managers by attending Pre-Bid meetings, contacting them for pre-qualification forms and following up with an occasional call or email. You are now hearing about bids and GC’s are reaching out to you for bids. The plans for these bids need to be obtained.
The Builder’s Exchange is a great place to begin. Many cities have the BX and will offer a trial week so that you can begin to understand what they have to offer. Once you have the plans in hand (or on your computer!) you want to read the specs to be certain this is a project you want to move forward with. There will be various sign types on the spec sheet. Now you will want to go to the Bid/Drawings section of the bid sheet. The category I am speaking to is the interior room signs…ADA signage.
Typically there will be several sign types that you will see drawings of. Each drawing will be labeled with a specific letter or shape. You will find this on the interior drawing of the building. Look for a door schedule that will total up each sign type separately. If this schedule exists…YOU’RE IN LUCK because the signs will be counted for you! No door schedule?
You will be counting the various signs. The next step is formulating your results on a spreadsheet. Email your info to email@example.com We will get back to you Pretty Darn Quickly! Read more about the process of increasing your companies bottom line at ADA Signs Wholesale.
