Pre-Bid Reviews

There are two primary functions of the pre-bid roof walk. It assures all bidders are on the same page and establishes a Q&A session for clarification discussions on the written Scope of Work, items not covered in the SOW and acceptable alterations.
 
  Note: The purpose of a Bid Specification is to guarantee Best Pricing/Value and highest Quality of Service (QoS) for a predetermined Type of Roof System.
 
Since the bid process is predicated on standards and involves multiple contractors, we need to make sure all bidders are provided consistent and accurate information. Even within standards, there's room for acceptable alterations to the Scope of Work because variations in standards exist between material manufacturers. A Pre-Bid Roof Walk provides bidders with an equal opportunity and knowledge of alterations through an Addendum.

The Pre-Bid Walk-About offers contractors a chance to review the site and identify characteristics they will need to provision for in their proposal. Since contractors will be held accountable for the specifications and bid price they submit, the pre-bid review eliminates and/or reduces erroneous claims, change orders and pricing modifications that affect the budget and ROI once a roofing project starts.

  • Pre-Bid review assures everyone from the buyer to their consultants and all of the bidding contractors have equal knowledge. Consultants operate independent of the supply chain so there are no special cases or preferred vendors. And, written specifications eliminate vendor driven changes that may benefit individual contractors.
