Bid Administration & Contractor Selection

Once construction drawings are complete, Studio 342 guides our clients through the bid process to get the best construction value for their money. Based on past performance and experience, we will recommend qualified contractors to ask for competitive bids to install the project. Sometimes a contractor we haven't worked with comes highly recommended by a client or other reference. If we are unfamiliar with their work, we will meet with them to see if they are suited for a project. Once bids are returned, we compile the bids and review them with our client to select the contractor that is best for their project, based on a number of criteria. We will also negotiate construction costs with a select contractor, bypassing the bidding process.
