Missouri does not have a statewide licensing program or system in place. Therefore, all contractor licensing and registration occurs at the city/county level. In addition, there may be specific bond and insurance requirements that can vary from one area to the next. For specific information and to answer any given questions you may contact the city hall’s county clerk office.
If you’re considering bidding on construction projects in Missouri, you will want to visit the Missouri Worker Safety website. Understanding the state’s latest worker safety requirements will be helpful as you prepare your bids for Missouri construction projects.
Subcontractors and suppliers report that they struggle to find and connect with reputable and busy general contractors. PlanHub has reviewed the latest construction industry data to determine Missouri’s most prominent and active general contractors, and here are their website links.
There is no schedule or regulatory process for posting new 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 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 or upcoming events that match your trade or scope of work, and then start your usual takeoff process. Certain publicly funded projects may contain particular bid requirements or forms, typically included with the plans and specs.
The Missouri AGC and the Kansas City AGC chapters provides training, support, and business resources to help contractors follow proper state procedures and build a better construction environment for Missouri in the future.
Since most state building codes provide a baseline of occupant safety and comfort, some similarities from one state to the next are to be expected. However, each state creates its building code to address unique localized environmental issues such as hurricanes, tornadoes, landslides, flooding, and even earthquakes.
