In the bidding phase, Hoffman Architects and the client select a contractor to build the design. The tasks in this phase include:

  • Identification of qualified contractors and their availability
  • Bidding package preparation and distribution
  • Bid analysis by trades (demolition and removal of debris, general construction, site work and masonry, electrical, HVAC, plumbing)
  • Bid meetings (clarification of discrepancies and negotiation with bidders)
  • Contractor selection and contract preparation
  • Contractor obtains Building Permit sometimes requiring the Architect’s assistance
