With strong competition for the many opportunities available, if you wish to tender for public or private sector planned or responsive repairs and maintenance 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 with maximum end-user satisfaction.
If like many refurbishment contractors, you do not have the in-house expertise to manage and prepare pre-qualification (PQQ) and tender quality (ITT) submissions, the experienced team at Propeller can help. Our bid response professionals have held senior positions in the construction industry and have won and delivered many planned and responsive maintenance projects to social housing clients.
