You’ve registered with General Contractors, filled out their Pre – Qualification sheet and hope to receive bid information. Invitations to bid will ideally arrive via email.
Signs PDQ is involved with the Builder’s Exchange in Cleveland, Ohio. We have found this to be an excellent source for General Contractors to get connected with us in order to send ITB’s (Invitation to Bid). Signs PDQ frequently receive invitations that include links for the specs and plans. These links have really simplified the process. Utilizing the link that is provided will save time and money.
The Builder’s Exchange also summarizes the sign opportunities several nights a week. This will help you stay on top of what you are currently bidding on, what you have previously bid on and future bids. If you’re going to do the work to bid on a job you want to get it in front of all the General Contractor’s that will be bidding. Attending pre bid meetings will help you find out who is bidding the project.
This is a GREAT NETWORKING EVENT! The room is full of companies that will need signs! Some GC’s will email you directly and may want to know if you plan to bid. It is always a good idea to respond to their requests when possible…thus building a relationship with them. Looking over the specs and plans to review if the signs needed are signs you can provide and install.
Be sure to take note of the bid due date. We have found that this date sticks and although it may occasionally change, it rarely does. For more information check out ADAsignsWholesale.com.
