Top 4 Construction Project Bidding Sites

Although the construction industry is experiencing a mild recovery across the country, winning good bids is still no easy task for contractors. Because the industry has been so volatile over the past few years, many construction companies and workers have had to look further than their own back yards for profitable projects, making online project bidding one of the most important industry tools of the last decade.

Online bidding is made possible by a variety of reputable construction resource websites (such as the following four sites). These resources make project bidding more efficient by helping construction companies find the best projects in their locales and beyond. The sites below can be considered some of the best in the North American industry.

  1. Construction.com: This is the official website of McGraw-Hill Construction, which is part of the McGraw-Hill Companies. This company has been providing the construction industry with project and product information, plans and specifications, industry news, market research and trends and forecasts for more than a century, and now they provide all of this content on one, easy-to-navigate website. The bidding projects tool is organized by state and Canadian territory and project type and provides information on the phase, valuation, location and posting date.

  2. FedBizOpps.gov: This site is managed by the federal government and features a variety of federal business opportunities, including construction projects. Contract opportunities are organized by location, government agency and postdate. You may also search all available projects at once. Because this website is for U.S. government-related business opportunities, many of the current contracts are for reconstruction efforts in Iraq.

  3. GovernmentBids.com: GovernmentBids.com is your one-stop-shop for government bids and contract awards on the local, state and federal levels. The website does a daily search of thousands of websites, government publications and public meeting reports to provide its registered customers with a good overview of all government business opportunities.

  4. ReedConstructionData.com: According to its website, Reed Construction Data is a company that works to connect the people who design buildings with the people who build them. The company is a premier information and data resource for the architectural, engineering and construction industries of North America. One look at its website and you will see the company’s commitment to the industry. Project leads are organized by state or Canadian territory, and in-depth project details are listed with every bid, making the decision-making process very easy for contractors.

Each of these sites does require formal “membership,” which basically means you will need to set up an account. Most private online bidding sources also require some form of payment when placing a contract bid. Prices vary so be sure to review all terms and conditions before creating your account and placing bids.
