how tender collaboration can save costs

The cost of tendering can be a necessary expense, but what about collaborating with competitors to reduce costs?

At EPC Construction Consultants we encourage ‘Bill Share’ as an option for contractors who often bid against the same set of contractors in extremely competitive environments.

Bill Share presents a number of advantages;

  • Being sure that your bid is being prepared on a like-for-like basis
  • Ensuring that tender queries and addendums are managed and implemented for all parties
  • Shared measurement and bill preparation costs

In this scenario, we do not offer a pricing service to prevent any perceived conflict of interest, but a transparent measurement and pricing platform, with significantly reduced estimating and administration costs.

This pricing strategy can work for Tier 1 and Tier 2 contractors, where two or more of the tendering parties are open minded to saving time and costs associated with the estimating process, often accounting for 50-60% of the total estimating costs.
