Pennsylvania does not have a statewide contractors licensing board. Licensing for generals 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.
If you’re considering bidding on projects in Pennsylvania, you will want to visit the Pennsylvania Worker Safety website. Understanding the state’s latest worker safety requirements will be helpful as you prepare your bids for Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania’s largest general contractor.
Depending on the project’s size and scope, new drawings can take a few weeks to several months to complete. Plans for new construction projects go out to bid once the architect has finalized the plans with the project owner. While we can’t speak for other plan room services, once PlanHub receives a new construction project, the clients, plans, specs, and bidders list are available online within four hours
Once you’re properly licensed or registered, you can begin submitting your bid to the general contractor’s bidding on the project. Access the PlanHub plan room to pick and choose the projects that interest you and start your takeoff process. A general contractor should be the only person to submit their bids to the project owner. Certain publicly funded projects may contain specific bidding requirements, construction services, or forms, typically included with the plans and specs.
The AGC and the Pennsylvania Builders Association provides training, support, and business resources to help contractors and subcontractors build a better and safer construction environment for their workers and overall the future.
Some similarities from one state to the next are typical since most state building codes provide a baseline of occupant safety and comfort. However, every state creates its building code to address localized environmental issues such as hurricanes, tornadoes, landslides, flooding, and even earthquakes.
