For a building project, construction is the ultimate reality. Here ideas, drawings and specifications take physical form. The bidding, negotiation and 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 and what price it will charge. They are the most difficult aspect of the building process and result in a higher rate of claims and litigation. Key aspects include dissertations on the preparation of bids, the uses and abuses of unit prices, plus cost saving and rebidding strategies..
