Land Development Bid Process

Publication: Residential Land Development Practices: A Textbook on Developing Land into Finished Lots

Abstract

The bid process is the bridge between the regulatory approval process and the construction of a project. This chapter discusses a step-by-step procedure for managing the bid process, focusing on costs, proper scheduling, contractor capabilities, and constructing a quality subdivision as the three key ingredients of a successful project. The key elements of the contractor selection process are competitive price, sense of cooperation, skill, expertise, project experience, reliability, references, professionalism of the owner, and experienced management staff, quality equipment, and qualified superintendents. Changing the construction documents requires the engineering company to assess the change and revise the plans. A budget versus bid report showing the differences between the budget and the actual bid proposal is necessary.
