• Bid Process: The secret to a successful construction project - Spaces for Life by Lance McCarthy

    By Lance McCarthy Lance McCarthy Lance McCarthy My 6-year-old has been honing his comedy skills, and discovered the impatient cow joke. You know this one? ***Spoiler alert*** I’m telling the joke now… “Knock Knock” “Who’s there?” “Impatient Cow” “Impatient C–” (before the other person can say “who”) “MOO!” I consider myself a humor connisseur, and this is still one of my favorite clean jokes. However, it goes from a “10” on the funny-o-meter to a “1” if the joker doesn’t say “Moo” fast enough to interrupt the jokee. (Is “jokee” a word? It is now). My son doesn’t get that it isn’t just saying the right words, the joke is all about timing. Get the timing wrong, and the whole thing dies. That is the way it works with planning for a construction project too. My architect and I were me...

To an engineering graduate student, the exposure is usually very less and sometimes, it is about 5 or 10 years down the line that they actually get to see the tender document. With enough experience in the process of civil and structural engineering tenders, it has been observed that the form and structure of a tender document is similar.

By Lance McCarthy Lance McCarthy Lance McCarthy My 6-year-old has been honing his comedy skills, and discovered the impatient cow joke. You know this one? ***Spoiler alert*** I’m telling the joke now… “Knock Knock” “Who’s there?” “Impatient Cow” “Impatient C–” (before the other person can say “who”) “MOO!” I consider myself a humor connisseur, and this is still one of my favorite clean jokes. However, it goes from a “10” on the funny-o-meter to a “1” if the joker doesn’t say “Moo” fast enough to interrupt the jokee. (Is “jokee” a word? It is now). My son doesn’t get that it isn’t just saying the right words, the joke is all about timing. Get the timing wrong, and the whole thing dies. That is the way it works with planning for a construction project too. My architect and I were meeting with a potential client yesterday for an addition project, and they said “I wish there were a book that told you the steps for going through this process. I’m afraid of getting things in the wrong order and messing something up.” Couldn’t have said it better myself. It is scary. There are probably 153 books on Amazon on “The Steps To A Construction Project,” but why do so many people end up mystified or unsatisfied with the process? The traditional model for planning a construction project... The traditional model for planning a construction project… (Click to enlarge) Let me share a simple way we have found to help planning for a project work more better (ex-English teacher here). The secret is timing: this before that, that before the other. Imagine the design/construction process being like a giant funnel. Traditionally (the way I learned to do it 20 years ago), the client tells an architect and/or contractor what they want, the architect draws a plan, the contractor (or three or four) gives them a bid, there is some quibbling, and a contract is signed (small end of the funnel). Then as the project goes, the client, architect and contractor start discovering each others’ visions ...and the ideal model. (Click to enlarge). …and the ideal model. (Click to enlarge). “Oh, that’s our tile? That’s not our tile.” “Oh, that’s behind the wall? How did that get there?” By the time the project ends, there is a vast difference between what the client thought they would pay and what the project actually cost (big end of the funnel). Narrow to wide. To be clear, in something as complicated as changing someone’s home, there will always be unknowns. We are years into honing this process trying to remove as much uncertainty as possible — we still get surprised now and then. However, it is still possible to flip that funnel so that the process starts really vague (big end of funnel), then through a series of conversations (we call them “discoveries”), the contractor and architect discover what the client wants, and the client discovers what their needs look like and cost, which then impacts what they think they need. Vague to specific. It is a big feedback loop. A cycle. (Cue Elton John singing “The circle of lihihiiife!”) Put the right questions in the right order, the right people listening to each other at the right time, and the whole messy scary process becomes a lot less messy-scary. (Note I didn’t say it wasn’t messy-scary, just LESS messy-scary”). To sum it all up, there are a couple of key elements that will need to be a part of planning a successful project: Go from vague to specific through a series of discoveries. Timing is everything. Right things in the right order. Have the right people in the room for those conversations (you want a team of people who are each talented in different areas — design, construction, budget — that can collaboratively represent their piece of the project Get as much of the project built “on paper” as possible before signing a contract. There will still be plenty of stressful times in a big remodeling or construction project, but this will make it much more successful. And tune in next week to find out “How much an addition costs.” You’ve been wondering, haven’t you?

simpleshow explains: why so many public construction projects go wrong. www.simpleshow.com This is Julia. She's protesting against the building of a new railway station. The ambitious project seems to cost much more than planned, and its completion has been delayed. She feels the politicians have cheated her - after all, she's also financing the project through her taxes! So why do big public building projects in Germany often face such major cost overruns? Well, let's say Julia wants to build a house: She commissions a construction company, generally choosing the one that makes the cheapest offer. The company starts building her house. However, the first problems occur quickly: material costs go up, the garage costs extra, and the planned terrace means getting a building permit which she doesn't have. Completion is delayed, and the planned costs explode, because Julia, when it came to potential risks and additional costs, didn't budget enough. That's exactly what happens with public construction projects. When a project is in the planning, the tender goes out to several competing building companies. Like Julia, a decision is made by the awarding authority - generally in favour of the cheapest bid. On the one hand, that's because it will probably then face less politicial opposition, and, on the other hand, because that's what public tender regulations require. But: the cheapest offer isn't always the best. The construction companies estimate costs when tendering for public building projects as low as possible, because there are always items that haven't been considered in the tender. Construction companies exploit that. The politicians know about this, but even higher costs make it less likely that voters will approve the project. And thus cost estimates are, from the very beginning, far below what's realistic. Building work starts, but even then, additional costs are concealed. Because halting a project in the middle of construction would threaten the jobs of workers, architects and planners. Changes to construction plans, special wishes, fluctuating material costs or requirements for special permits mean costs rise radically. So how can this be prevented? Construction costs should be calculated realistically. To do that, apart from revamped tender regulations, what's needed are independent inspectors with experience of big construction projects. In addition, the construction company's building plans need to be more precise and a construction schedule that's realistic has to be pinned down. That means that the construction company can complete the project successfully the politicians manage to cling to their reputations, and Julia doesn't have any reason to get worked up anymore. Along with everybody else, she's happy that her taxes are being invested sensibly.

http://www.glenigan.com/ This video outlines how a construction project comes to life from start to finish covering the processes inbetween each stage. Find out the function of each building contractor and subcontractor and exactly how they all work together to complete the building cycle. Video Transcript: Having been tracking the construction industry for almost 40 years, Glenigan knows the building cycle inside-out. Our vast reach sees us capture every UK planning application and decision whilst providing extensive construction activity analysis and forecasting. Let's show you just how the cycle unfolds: We're going to look at a typical £10m contract. It all starts with the client needing a building and appointing legal and financial advisors. The professional construction consultant team is then appointed to advise on a project and steer the procurement process. The professional construction consultant team typically consists of an architect, a structural consultant, a building services consultant and a cost consultant. The team provide the client with project management and procurement services drawing up the designs for submission to the local planning authority, while also establishing bills of quantities based on these detailed designs. The local planning authority grants the outline planning and sets up local consultation and planning committee meetings to get wholesale approval. Having received approval form the local planning authority, the process of inviting preferred contractors to tender can begin. The opportunity to tender is open. For contractors interested in tendering for the project a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire is completed and submitted and from all the bidders 6 are selected to tender. The shortlisted contractors submit tenders and 2 are selected for further negotiations to decide which contractor will be appointed. Glenigan tracks every stage of the planning and contracting process notifying our clients when contract tenders have been invited and bids are required for submission. We identify bidders through our research and our exclusive partnership with The Builders Conference and monitor projects to identify the successfully appointed main contractor. The local authority gives planning consent and returns to the planning committee to present the final submissions. The appointed main contractor then invites tier 2 package contractors to bid for specialist elements of the project; such as foundations, structural concrete and steel work, glazing, building services, roofing, and fit out packages. The main contractor then appoints tier 2 firms. Our continual tracking of projects means Glenigan clients can access details of key people in these specialist contractors. Next the main contractor works with the tier 2 firms to complete the health & safety assessments and negotiate on the final pricing delivery and designs before signing the stage 2 agreement. The designs are returned to the main contractor for refinement and the tier two firms begin selecting the tier 3 contractors responsible for brickwork, roofing, scaffolding, electrical & mechanical works, dry lining and finishing works. The designs are finalised by the main contractor and supply agreements are drafted up between all builders merchants and manufacturers. The time has come to prepare for construction. With site teams mobilised and recruited, labourers subcontractors brought on board and construction equipment hired. As more specialist contractors, materials and service providers are required, Glenigan equips its clients with timely project and people information to secure new business. As site security and preliminary works are completed and work starts onsite, The Glenigan Index tracks this thus serving as a forward indicator of industry activity. The site manager becomes responsible for the running of the programme, the site, the coordination of the subcontractors and the safety of the working environment. The building is carefully completed and claims can now be placed for tier 2 completion and main contractor milestones. The clients quantity survey then completes an assessment of the work to verify that the project has been completed to the appropriate standard. If work completed is unsatisfactory, payment is disputed and a court of adjudication or arbitration is opened for the contractor in question. At various stages of the process, Local Authority Officers and Building Control Inspectors will visit to ensure certain areas comply with regulations. Once the building has been certified compliant by authorities, the client engineer will sign the completion certificate. As part of this any works still required such as the refurbishment of minor defects will be scheduled. Snagging will subsequently take place to ensure such minor defects are addressed and the project reaches completion. And that's the building cycle.

Tender Documents form the basis of any contract signed. A through understanding of the same enables the contractor and the owner get the best of this system. To an engineering graduate student, the exposure is usually very less and sometimes, it is about 5 or 10 years down the line that they actually get to see the tender document. With enough experience in the process of civil and structural engineering tenders, it has been observed that the form and structure of a tender document is similar. In this lecture, one of the tenders that were downloaded from the internet has been used to explain the various aspects that govern the tendering process.

In this session, we look at evaluating complex bids and tenders. This is far from the mechanical process that some might imagine, and takes us into challenging issues around weighting evaluation factors, and the basis for converting costs into scores so that we can compare cost against other factors. See how different methodologies can lead to totally different supplier selection results in some cases!

http://www.winningtenders.co.uk - We're professional tender writers helping businesses to win tenders. Here we suggest a few do's and don'ts when handling tenders. Do’s and Don’ts of Tendering DO provide ALL the requested information on time and in the required format. REMEMBER that the date given for a response is normally the last date that a tender can be accepted. Late submissions are normally DISQUALIFIED. DO study the tender documents carefully; answer all the questions properly and show the buyer your capability to carry out the contract. DON’T seek to influence the decision by requesting meetings with the buyer: they can't do that during the tender process. There will normally be a named contact on the tender documents: if in any doubt do contact them for clarification as this could save you time and money. If you are shortlisted, you'll be invited to meet the tender evaluation panel. DO provide clear and concise contact details: email address, website and phone numbers. DO thoroughly check your prices and data before finally submitting tender pricing schedules. DO review your policies on a regular basis to ensure that they comply with current regulations. DON”T send glossy brochures or any other information that has not been requested. DO complete ALL sections of the tender document and ensure that you comply fully with the buyer’s terms and conditions. DO ensure that you get a receipt of delivery for your tender submission - signed for or proof of postage if ‘hard copy’ is required or an email ‘read’ receipt if sent electronically. DON’T seek to amend your offer in any way after it has been submitted. DO ask for a de-brief – whether you are successful or not. It’s important to learn what you did right and how you can improve your chances next time. DON’T give up if at first you don’t succeed: try and try again, just as you would in any other sales activity. And don’t be afraid to ask for expert help to improve your chances of success.
