So bid day has come and gone. You’ve won that project and succeeded in achieving your goal. All the hours of estimating and project analysis have paid off. The sweet smell of success is in the air and you can now take a deep breath, right?
Wrong. Yes, all those efforts have paid off and you have that euphoric feeling, however this is no time to relax. There is much more to be done.
The project has already been thought out, built and completed ……. on paper that is…
It’s now time to take the pleura of calculations, the material and subcontractor proposals received along with the building sequencing and logic developed, to have it all come to fruition.
Not an easy task.
Depending on your company size and infrastructure, the project needs to be handed off to a project manager or to whoever will be responsible for the project build-out. Many times the estimating department is instrumental in developing the purchase orders needed to be issued, contracts needed to be written, executed and secured.
The project schedule needs to be honed and submittal documents need to be compiled .
Long lead time items need consideration for timely delivery which means submittal concentration needs to focus on these items immediately.
Okay mission accomplished, this job complete and now it’s time to relax, right?
Wrong. Most construction companies can not run their business on only one project and must bid on many to get just one. It’s time to continue searching for the next project and the estimating process begins all over again.
Work backlog is imperative to keep the work flowing in and to ensure no down time occurs.
