What are Bid Prices?
Bid prices in the construction industry refer to the amount a contractor proposes to charge for a particular project or service tendered by a client or project owner. These prices are usually determined after the contractor carefully assesses the project's scope, requirements, and the associated material, equipment, labor expenses, and overheads. The bid prices are essentially the predicted cost of the project plus the profit margin of the contractor. The client or project owner usually picks the contractor with the most comprehensive and competitively priced bid, assuming all other important factors like experience and capability are deemed satisfactory. It's noteworthy that bid prices can be subject to negotiation, and post-bid changes could occur following project change orders or unexpected construction conditions.
