Propeller Studios has successfully supported many civil engineering companies to secure lucrative new contracts and grow their businesses, from regional SMEs to blue chip national contractors.
For instance we helped a midlands based company secure the Birmingham City Council A45 route enhancement scheme and helped a Berkshire based contractor secure a place on the Hampshire County Council SE7 Highways Framework.
The UK’s civil engineering market is undergoing major transformation as businesses respond to the challenges of the economic crisis and subsequent recovery, begin to shift to green and sustainable construction, and seek to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the digital economy. There has never been a better time to bid for tendered work whether in the public or private sectors but it is essential to have a robust bid strategy which ensures you put your energy into the right bids and that the bid process is managed effectively and results in well structured, well presented, compelling and compliant tenders that leave your prospect in no doubt that your company represents best value for money and will deliver their project on time, on budget and to the best quality.
If like many civil engineering companies, you do not have the in-house expertise to manage and prepare quality bid submissions, the experienced team at Propeller can help. Our bid response professionals are experienced in writing compelling, compliant, cost-efficient, client focused tenders ranging from minor works through to major infrastructure projects. We are experts in evaluating and writing about risk and opportunity, health and safety, quality, sustainability, BIM and clearly describing the added value that your bid represents. Our experience extends from transportation (road, rail, and aviation), power and energy, water, sewerage and flood defences, to complex building projects including sports stadia, housing and commercial.
