One of the biggest challenges in construction is keeping new jobs coming in without spending all of your time chasing potential projects. It’s calculated that as of November 2020, the US private new construction was valued at $1.14 trillion. Given that 78% of engineering and construction companies believe that risk is increasing in the industry, how can you make sure the projects you’re bidding on will help you grow your business?

Before you decide to throw in the towel, it’s important to know that you have resources available to help you compete on a wide range of projects. When it comes to developing a quality construction bid proposal, 1build has your back. In the past, we’ve released our very popular (and free!) construction bid proposal templates, available for both Excel and Word. But given our solid dedication to the construction industry, we felt that we could do a lot more. 

After all, a lot of contractors tend to go through the bidding process assuming the worst. They know there’s a good chance that they’re going to lose more bids than they’ll ever win. This is typically due to poor cost estimates. But even when you win, there’s a good chance cost overruns will eat into your margins. Talking to industry leaders can often leave you just as many questions as answers. But what if you could go through the process knowing that you’re creating a winning construction bid proposal—for both you and your client?
