FAQs about construction projects and bids in Massachusetts

There is no schedule or regulatory process for posting a new bid opening or blueprints to a plan room or to start the bidding process. Plans for new construction projects go out to bid once the architect and project owner have finalized the plans. Depending on the project’s size, scope, and complexity, new drawings can take a few weeks to several months to complete. Once PlanHub receives a new construction project, the plans, specs, and bidders list are available to you online within a few hours.

Once you’re properly licensed, you can begin submitting your bid proposal to the general contractors bidding on the project, or the project owner. Log in to the PlanHub plan room to pick and choose the projects that match your trade or scope of work, and then start your usual takeoff process. Certain publicly funded projects may contain specific bidding requirements or forms, typically included with the plans and specs.
