Subcontractor Selection Process in General Contracting
VCC uses its extensive regional and national contacts to begin the formation of the bidders list of contractors. Through pre-bid reviews with trade contractors, we ensure that bid packages are complete in scope and detail. This thorough preparation allows VCC and the owners to make valid comparisons of subcontractor bids and receive the most competitive prices available.
Whether through pre-qualifying standards or our own review, VCC works with quality subcontractors. Once bid proposals have been gathered we can then present a final pricing package with detailed estimates and bids for each trade, and scope/price comparisons. After pricing approval VCC enters into detailed subcontract agreements. These contracts establish all items of scope, scheduled durations, quality standards, warranties and the expected levels of production. This contractual relationship provides the level of control needed for value management.
When changes to the construction plans are necessary, VCC adjusts accurately and efficiently. Following an Owner’s request for a change, the appropriate subcontractors are contacted, and given all details necessary to submit revised pricing. Attentive to an owner’s needs for accurate appraisal of changes, VCC requires that each subcontractor response include necessary unit and labor costs with a detailed take off from the approved plans. After all take-offs and prices are double checked against plans in the VCC offices, they are submitted to the owner with full confidence that the cost and construction changes are valid.
