The General Tender Construction Method

In a general tender method of construction, you hire a primary consultant to act on your behalf. The primary consultant and their other consultants design and produce working drawings as well as specifications ready for tender. A tender is called, and selected general contractors bid on the project.

Once the tendering process is complete, the primary consultant and you review the bids and award the bid to a general contractor. The awarded general contractor then carries out the construction of the project.

This method provides - 

  • Competitive bidding from multiple general contractors.

  • Longer project delivery time.

  • Design and drawing phase is completed and paid for before being tendered.

  • Client and primary consultant award project to a general contractor.

  • Tender projects tend to have more changes throughout.
