For a building project, construction is the ultimate reality. Here ideas, drawings & specifications take physical form. The bidding, negotiation & contract award phases of a project are a short but very important part of every project .

The process of bidding is to seek from the construction industry its statement of what it can do, how much time it will take to do it & what price it will charge. They are the most difficult aspect of the building process & result in a higher rate of claims & litigation. Key aspects include dissertations on the preparation of bids, the uses & abuses of unit prices, plus cost saving & rebidding strategies..
