As you know, the greatest chance any Contractor has of bidding on projects is by creating connections; with teams involved in private or public projects, referrals, networking, City programs, marketing, and/or word of mouth. 


Can we guarantee you’ll win these projects? No.

Will we help you prepare for them? Yes.
