Let's be real. If you're a subcontractor, the world of bidding sometimes feels like trying to untangle a stubborn pair of earphones. With countless bid requests from ITBs and referrals, paired with the need to juggle multiple projects, it's easy to get overwhelmed.
Moreover, simply bidding isn't the end of the road. The competitive landscape means more losses than wins. Thus, striking the right balance between maintaining a healthy win rate, forging strong relationships with General Contractors (GCs), and more, can seem like a whirlwind. Let's demystify this process for you.
Perfectly crafting a bid doesn't guarantee success. To enhance your chances, you must understand the process intimately.
Enter JengAI, the game-changer in the realm of preconstruction.
Identifying the Right Opportunities
Opportunities abound, but making discerning choices is key. Before diving into a project, it's crucial to assess:
- Your company's alignment with the project's demands and requirements.
- The availability of resources and equipment to ensure timely completion.
- Past interactions and performance history with the General Contractor.
- The projected profitability of the venture.
