Construction Bid Proposal Template

Best Bid Proposal Template by Construction Experts

Most builders will win only 1 out of every 6 bids they submit. Although there are new tools and services to try to help contractors beat these odds, the cold hard truth is that this situation--which wastes time and money, drains resources, and decreases contractors’ profitability--is only getting worse.

Since 1build’s goal is to partner with our customers to help them achieve their business goals, not just develop their estimates, we’re thrilled to announce our new construction bid proposal template, which is specifically designed to help contractors, subcontractors, and project managers of firms beat these odds.

In fact, this bid proposal template is the second in our series of free templates designed to help builders win more bids so they can increase revenue and grow their business. (You can download our #1-ranked cost estimate template here.)

We hope that by leveraging this new bidding template in either MS Word or PDF format, you’ll not only be able to increase the number of proposals you submit but also increase the percentage of those you win. 

You can download this bid template and start using it immediately.
