The Dodge Report and plan rooms

  If the majority of your work will come from competitive bidding (as opposed to jobs which are just given to you, which happens few and far between) then you need a one-stop place where you can look at mountains of blueprints for several different jobs (instead of running all over Southern California to general contractors offices to look at blueprints).

You may have heard of the Dodge Report

The Dodge Report is basically a listing of projects available to bid on.

You purchase a membership to the Dodge Report for print and/or electronic delivery. The Dodge Report will give you the information you need to prepare a bid or enter negotiations.

The detailed project information included in the Dodge Report will also enable you to sell products or services in your highly specialized niche. All construction stages from pre-planning to the start of the project are covered.

Just about any customization of your Dodge Report by geography, project type, valuation, or stages of construction that meet your needs is available.

Print Dodge Reports

Print Dodge Reports give you the flexibility to order any combination of counties you wish. State, regional, national and Canadian coverage is also available.

Through the same organization that offers the Dodge Report you can find plan rooms available.

Purchasing an FW Dodge or other plan room membership

Purchasing a membership at an FW Dodge plan room or any other plan room gives you access to the plans and blueprints that are on display for various construction projects.

All you have to do is approach the plan room by calling, visiting in person or visiting their website if they have one, and sign up for membership.

Most if not all of the plan rooms have a membership fee, usually different fees for each plan room. In addition, some plan rooms will have a greater selection of plans and projects to bid on. The Dodge Report comes from F.W. Dodge and is one of the largest organizations available.

Information available through the plan rooms

These construction plan rooms not only have the blueprints and specs for projects up for bid, they also usually have a list of which general contractors are bidding the construction project (so that you don't have to do the legwork to find out who to submit your bid to).

Most, if not all, of these plan rooms usually also mail and/or email to you a weekly, or even daily, list of all the construction projects that are out to bid, as well as results on past construction job bids.
