Search for Construction Jobs & Bids in Pennsylvania

Unlike many other industries in the United States, the demand for commercial and residential contractors and construction workers has continually grown since 2012. Thanks to increased consumer demand, coupled with the unprecedented low interest rates Pennsylvania GCs, along with the entire construction industry, are reporting their biggest backlog of work in years. In fact, there are so many active and upcoming construction projects that Pennsylvania now ranks within the top 15 states in the nation for construction demand today. The good news is that many general contractors are constantly searching for subcontractors and material suppliers to keep their projects on schedule and meet completion deadlines.

What you should know about Pennsylvania construction projects and bids

Pennsylvania does not have a statewide contractors licensing board. Licensing for general contractors and subcontractors occurs at the local level, typically by city or county. So, you’ll need to do some research to find the correct licensing office, based on your business location. In addition, there may be specific bond and insurance requirements that vary from one jurisdiction to another.
