Search for Construction Jobs & Bids in Ohio

Unlike many other industries, the demand for commercial and residential contractors and workers has continually grown since 2012. General contractors are reporting their biggest backlog of work in years, thanks to increased consumer demand, coupled with the unprecedented low interest rates. The good news is that many general contractors are frantically searching for subcontractors and material suppliers to keep their projects on schedule and meet completion deadlines. In fact, there are so many active and upcoming construction projects that Ohio ranks within the top 15 states in the nation for construction demand today. You can learn more about current Ohio construction projects here.

What you should know about Ohio construction projects and bids

Ohio does not have a statewide contractor licensing system in place. GCs and subcontractors get licensed through either city or county offices, so you’ll need to do a Google search to find the correct licensing office. In addition, there may be specific bond and insurance requirements that vary from one jurisdiction to the next.

If you’re considering bidding on projects in Ohio, you will want to visit the Ohio Worker Safety website. Understanding the state’s latest worker safety requirements will be helpful as you prepare your bids for Ohio construction projects.

Subcontractors constantly struggle to find and connect with reputable and busy general contractors. PlanHub has reviewed the most recent construction industry data to determine Ohio’s most prominent and active general contractors, and here are their website links. 

FAQs about construction projects and bids in Ohio

Plans for new construction projects go out to bid once the architect has finalized the plans with the project owner. Depending on the project’s size and scope, new drawings can take a few weeks to several months to complete. While we can’t speak for other plan room services, once PlanHub receives a new construction project, the plans, specs, and bidders list are available online within hours.

Ohio has been revamping its infrastructure like many places in the United States. In 2022 the ODOT announced its $2 billion construction plans. With 829 projects slated for the near future, it is safe to say that there will be no shortage of construction jobs in Ohio. Commercial construction, too, is coming back strong post pandemic. Because of this, construction employment has a bright future. Workers of all levels of experience will be needed. For entry-level positions, there is the option of becoming a construction worker or construction laborer. Roles that demand years of experience, such as construction project manager, are in particularly high demand. A high level of construction activity is good news if you are looking to get involved. PlanHub is here to help you get started!

Access the PlanHub plan room to pick and choose the projects that interest you and start your takeoff process. Once 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.

Every state creates its building code to address localized environmental issues such as hurricanes, tornadoes, landslides, flooding, and even earthquakes. Some similarities from one state to the next are typical since most state building codes provide a baseline of occupant safety and comfort.
