Like many other southern states, the Georgia construction industry doesn’t slow down for seasonal weather changes. New construction projects typically go out to bid once the architect has finalized the plans with the project owner. New drawings can take a few weeks to several months to complete, depending on the project’s size and scope. Unlike some other plan room services, the plans, specs, and bidders list are available online within four hours once PlanHub receives a new construction project.
Georgia is expected to maintain its current upward trajectory into the 2020s. Metro Atlanta, for example, continues to gain cultural and commercial relevance in the United States, thus leading to an increase in construction activity. Construction sites are becoming busy with new projects to support the expected population growth. Individuals with valuable work experience can find great positions such as construction project manager. Employment for entry level roles is looking extremely high, as well. With plenty of opportunities at the door, PlanHub can help you get involved in Georgia today.
Access the PlanHub plan room to pick and choose the projects that interest you and start your takeoff process. After you’re properly licensed, you can begin submitting your bid to the general contractors bidding on the project. Certain publicly funded projects may contain specific bidding requirements or forms, typically included with the plans and specs.
The AGC provides training, support, and business resources to help contractors (not just GCs) build a better construction environment for the future. You can learn more about it by visiting the AGC Georgia website.
