Achieving a good construction project requires a good procurement process. In the modern industrialized world, construction usually involves the translation of paper or computer based designs into reality. A formal design team may be assembled to plan the physical proceedings, and to integrate those proceedings with the other parts. The design usually consists of drawings and specifications, usually prepared by a design team including the client, architects, interior designers, surveyors, civil engineers, cost engineers (or quantity surveyors), mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, structural engineers, and fire protection engineers, etc. The design team is most commonly employed by (i.e. in contract with) the project owner. Under this system, once the design is completed by the design team, a number of construction companies or construction management companies may then be asked to make a bid for the work, either based directly on the design, or on the basis of drawings and a bill of quantities provided by a quantity surveyor. Following evaluation of bids, the project owner will typically award a contract to the substantially responsive bidder. The question is, as a project owner, how do you know who to assemble on the evaluation team and why? Why gamble and yet you have a clear and precise option. Just avoid all that hassle and guess work by simply contacting CRB.

CRB’s support to Contractors
Contractors are usually involved in bidding for various projects (ranging from small to big sizes). The bidding process involves big bidding documents and requires skills that may not be readily available with the Contractor. More so, the interpretation of the bidding documents is quite challenging and can over stretch the company resources, for instance staff. CRB provides expert solution in the tendering process and assures quality of the bid.
