No one who knows the contract construction business would question for a moment that the struggle to find and obtain new business is difficult and time consuming. Fact finding about new business reduces time available for active selling but it's a job that has to be done. Fortunately there are professional services available to do this. These services publish daily construction news reports that are gathered and compiled by an experienced staff of qualified technicians and sent right up to the contractors door. Depending on the stage of the new project, each report includes: name, location and estimated cost of project; names of owner, architect, and engineer; when plans will be completed and bids required; names of general contractors bidding; low bidders or successful contractor; contractors bidding on major trades out for separate bids; and contract awards on all major trades.
