CCAC Generates New Opportunities With PlanHub

“We are getting more and more general contractors contacting us — and we haven’t been on PlanHub that long. It’s been phenomenal!” – Kimberly Rudolph, Commercial HVAC Project Coordinator at CCAC Building




  • Finding the right types of jobs to match the company’s HVAC capabilities
  • Expanding reach to more general contractors in newer markets


  • PlanHub’s rapidly-growing network with more than general contractors
  • In-app communication and messaging
  • Robust search tools with intuitive filters and ability to search using keywords
  • Accessible locations to download project plans and documentation


  • Greater visibility to a large number of general contractors in the 100-mile service area
  • Daily contacts from general contractors that are interested in their business
  • Major uptick in bidding opportunities
  • Ability to get more bids out faster



Since 1967, CCAC has been a leading provider of HVAC products and services for the commercial, industrial, and institutional markets with several locations throughout North Carolina. The company is known for providing exceptional service and value for customers — their collaborative approach helps clients meet their needs, improve facility operations, and reduce owning and operating costs. CCAC Building Solutions has also been recognized by the Triad Business Journal as one of the best places to work in the state.

Kimberly Rudolph joined the company last October, as Commercial HVAC Project Coordinator.

“I love the construction industry. I think there are good opportunities for women in this industry. We’re seeing a lot more women owned businesses too.”

The company is focused on commercial construction— including education, worship, industrial, retail, healthcare –  and has worked on projects for Mohawk Flooring, the High Point Furniture Market, local schools, and more. Kimberly is tasked with helping to keep the pipeline filled with the right size and kinds of jobs for the company.

“I’m looking for jobs that are within a 100 mile radius of my office here and that fit the criteria for our type of work, mostly the really big jobs.”

Even though PlanHub is new to her, she’s thrilled with how it helps her get more done.

“We just started using PlanHub about six months ago. I haven’t fully explored everything yet, but it’s an amazing platform.”


Kimberly says, “I’ve got two monitors on my desk and if you look at the tabs I have open on both, they are all PlanHub. I am in it all the time.”

With more than 55,000 general contractors in PlanHub, Kimberly is excited by the number of new contacts she’s been able to make in a short time. One of the first things she did was ensure that her complete subcontractor profile was filled in and accurate. The results have been amazing.

“My email is blowing up with a huge number of jobs that fall into our wheelhouse! They are coming to us.”

The easy-to-use search is helping too. “I can find which general contractors are going after certain jobs.Then with all the plans and documentation online in the project Planroom, it’s easy to download what I need and prepare a bid.”

It’s helping her get established and make a name for the company in their area, where the office is relatively new.

“My office —  the Garner office – is in  the Raleigh area. We haven’t been here as long as in Greensboro, so a lot of the GCS don’t know us. Now all of a sudden they do. That’s one way PlanHub has been great for us.”

She continues with a story, “I actually have gotten emails and calls on a Sunday, which floored me! When a GC reaches out to you on a Sunday — wow, that means that they’re interested.”

She explains that she hasn’t yet tapped all the potential she sees in PlanHub – and is excited about trying out the Takeoff tool. She believes that it will be a big help in putting good bids together, not to mention saving valuable time.


Right now, she’s ramping up. “I’m submitting at least two extra bids a week. Next week, things will start to rock and roll – I’ve got at least six bids we are putting out because of PlanHub,” she says laughing. 

She loves that she is able to make direct connections with more GCs wanting to get to know the company.

“I’m getting a lot of calls because they can’t find good mechanical contractors, and that’s what we are. Once they work with us, they’ll be fans for life.”

But most of all, she’s excited about being able to play a big role in the business’s success.

“PlanHub is really going to be a key part of growing our business in this area. I couldn’t be happier.”

    From competitive intelligence in each project allowing you to know how many other contractors are downloading or bidding to insights as to contractors’ performance, we provide the data you need to lead your business to success.

    Bid Leveler & Proposal builder

    Comparing bids to one another has never been easier. Users can now see bids side by side, compare bid amounts, and review subcontractors’ certifications and qualifications all in one place.

    Bid Leveler’s apples-to-apples approach allows you to easily drill down and see detailed, easy-to-scan cost breakdowns. Indicate bid preference, hide bids that don’t meet your needs, and request needed information from subs.

    Full Bid Management

    From the initial decision to pursue a project to the final bid submission and follow up, bid management plays a central role in pre construction.

    Effectively managed bids during the preconstruction phase set the stage for a successful project execution and satisfied clients.

    Streamline bid management from project posting to estimating, bidding, and awarding in one place with easy project posting, project-contractor automatic matching based on trades, location, and qualification with PlanHub.

    Use bid planner, bid builder, bid leveler, and award tools to always know what’s going on with each project and bid.

    Estimation and TakeOff

    Let’s face it—time is money. And the more time it takes to perform takeoffs and submit bids, the more you risk losing out on valuable revenue opportunities. Manual methods and locally installed desktop software slow your takeoff process, and many digital solutions currently on the market can be overly complex and not user-friendly. 

    Build faster takeoffs, get more bids out the door, and win more projects. Forget pen and paper, outdated desktop software, and overly complicated digital takeoff solutions. PlanHub’s easy-to-use Takeoff tool helps you and your team build accurate takeoffs faster, minimize errors and material waste, and win more projects that boost your business growth. Performing your takeoffs with PlanHub allows you to:

    • Streamline and integrate your process: Perform your takeoffs in the same platform you use to manage your network and bids.
    • Avoid costly estimating errors: Get better accuracy with digital tools instead of traditional, mistake-prone pen and paper.
    • Collaborate easily: Share and work with your team, no matter where you—or they—are located.
    • Submit more bids and win more projects: Get quality bids in front of general contractors faster and get ahead of your competition.

    Document Management

    Organize, store, and manage various documents, blueprints, drawings and other information related to projects before the actual construction phase begins.

    This phase is crucial for setting the foundation of a successful construction project, and effective document management plays a significant role in ensuring that all necessary information is accessible, accurate, and up-to-date to all interested parties.

    Access, review, work on, and share large complex documents in one platform with amazing speed. From project definition, drawing management, takeoff, estimation, bid management, and contracts, everything happens in PlanHub.

    1M+ pre-qualified network

    PlanHub is the leading platform that connects companies, construction professionals, and projects in the pre-construction industry, focusing on building and developing meaningful relationships to enhance efficiency and productivity.

    We have integrated general contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers’ workflows in one platform to simplify the complex back and forth usually present in preconstruction. By allowing all interactions to be done through PlanHub, tracking projects and relationships is much easier, saving contractors and material suppliers time and money. Interactions in the platform are tagged and measured to provide insights to users.

    General contractors create bid packages that are shared in PlanHub as projects. They can include templatized lists of all CSI cost items as part of the new Baseline feature. Baseline allows for faster and more accurate bid requests, facilitates homogenization of subcontractors’ bids, and simplifies the comparison of incoming bids.

    Subcontractors are automatically matched with relevant projects based on their profile, preferences, and pre-qualification information saving hours of research to both sides. They can review project details, documentation, and blueprints.

    High-quality projects

    Your one-stop job for qualified hard-to-find private project leads in varying stages like pre-planning, bidding, etc., and across different geographies, zip codes, or distance to your office.

    You can segment project leads by type of project, status, project building use, trades and sub trades, or create your own list of keywords — and be notified when one of them is found in a posted project’s documentation or plans.

    We make it simple to find projects that match your business — and make sure you are notified right away.
