In a time of economic instability, current market conditions have created elevated competition for fewer projects in the construction industry.
Contractors are searching for business development opportunities, resources and more efficient bid management solutions to produce winning bids amongst an endless pool of competitors. Two leading industry solution providers have joined forces to support such a need.
Mid Atlantic BX (Builders Exchange) and DirtLogic have reached an agreement to offer exclusive services to the Mid-Atlantic commercial construction market. The relationship between both organizations enhances contractor confidence and capability to more effectively bid projects with greater accuracy, in a shorter amount of time – ensuring competitive pricing, and performance in formulating project-specific "take-offs" (estimates) for construction site work.
"The business relationship established between Mid Atlantic BX and DirtLogic reinforces our commitment to connecting the construction industry from project concept through completion," said Pete Gum, Mid Atlantic BX CEO. "DirtLogic's services compliment the BX's suite of business development and project lead solutions - designed specifically for the commercial construction industry to maximize business development efforts and streamline the bid management process."
Mid Atlantic BX provides the commercial construction industry with real-time, 24/7 access to over 14,000 Mid-Atlantic regional construction projects annually – totaling over $45 billion, along with project blueprints, specs, addenda, and bid documents. Mid Atlantic BX's core services comprise of COOL (Construction Opportunities On-Line), and PP+ (Private Planroom +) - the industry's most advanced General Contractor specific bid management solution.
DirtLogic's "take-off" services are designed to take the guesswork out of the bidding process. Contractors have access to a guaranteed estimate of the quantity and value of site work and other dirt work required on a construction project, down to the cubic yard, with grading accuracy to approximately one hundredth of an inch. "Our 'take-offs' easily integrate with industry GPS layout systems to make work in the field precise and efficient," said Matthew Gebarowski, DirtLogic founder and CEO.
