Title: This is the title the Primary contact has given the title. If there is not one, we will usually use the address.
Cost: Total construction cost.
Project Type/Vertical: Often more than one project type fills this category. Construction Type: New, Renovation, Addition.
Bid Stage: Our database is divided into 8 bid stages.
- Planning & Approval: Project is in the design stage, or is seeking approvals from the municipality, or has been submitted for permits. There are additional requirements to fulfill prior to construction. Most often, there is a Developer, Design/Build company and / or Architect attached to the project. These are typically the decision makers when it comes to subs, materials, supplies, etc.
- Pre-bidding: Project will be moving forward, based on design, site approvals, or necessary infrastructure that the city agreed to. Many times, this project needs a GC or sub-contractor to proceed. Again, decisions such as materials, brands, and supplies are confirmed here.
- Bidding: This is where the Architect is calling for a GC and/ or the GC is calling for subs because they are in the process of bidding a specific project. This stage is usually short lived, but many decisions relevant to the project are made in this stage as well.
- Pre-Construction: Vendors and builders are in place and the project is ready to begin.
- Construction: Project is underway.
• Completion • Cancelled • Hold
Start & End Dates: Each project automatically updates on the given start dates and moves to the Competed stage on the given end date. If not end date is given, the project will move to Completed after two years in the Construction Stage.
Location: With zip codes and mapping.
Project Details: A brief narrative, offering more details.
Bidding Information: A project may be entered in Planning & Approval, with, for example, a start date of Q1, 2019. As we learn more about the project, additional contacts could be entered (GCs Architects, etc) and the start date can change. That project then moves to a different stage with a different start date. To further explain, let’s assume the Q1, 2019 start date is accurate. The project will automatically move to construction (our database is set up that way), once the date approaches.
- For example, when a project is in the Bidding stage and has a bid date (bids due) of 1/20/2018, that project will automatically update to Pre-Construction on 1/21/2018 once the bids have been submitted and the bid stage has ended.
Updates: Additional information as our research team learns more about the project.
Materials: Check the material lists to see if your product or service is listed. If it is not listed that does not mean it is not involved in the project. You know better than anyone if your product or service goes into that particular project.
Contacts: We will give you at least one key contact, although the majority of our projects have multiple contacts under this tab. Every contact has a phone number and most of our contacts have an email address, too. The email is a live link, allowing you to communicate directly. We strive to provide the main contact on every project, however, we will always give you a person who can answer your questions and lead you to the decision maker.
