Assembling the right professional team sets up a project for success. As part of our professional bid management services, Stonemark establishes and clearly delineates the precise scope of work and performance requirements for architects, engineers, consultants, designers, contractors and other project participants. Professional bid management leads to a smoother process with fewer change orders once construction is underway.
- Prequalify experienced design professionals and contractors
- Prepare detailed Requests for Proposal and bid packages
- Verify bid compliance with scope and technical requirements
- Coordinate interview process
- Analyze bids and make recommendations for award
- Prepare insurance requirements and ensure compliance
- Negotiate and issue contracts
Our HOA retained Stonemark Construction Management to assess, plan, specify and manage repairs to our roofing. Their experience became immediately apparent. When we received proposals from contractors in response to our Invitation to Bid, the bids were not favorable, jeopardizing our project. In order to secure proposals closer to budget, Stonemark had extensive discussions with the contractors. They provided several options on the scope of work, searched for alternative materials, analyzed savings ideas, and suggested flexible terms on warranty period and construction duration. Due to Stonemark’s additional efforts, we received two good proposals. In short, Stonemark thought “outside the box” on many issues in order to enable us to perform our project within our budget. Given Stonemark’s experience and knowledge and the tremendous value they added to our project, we would not hesitate to retain them again in the future and recommend them wholeheartedly.
