Joint Scope Meeting: First, enter your project online at www.ezIQC.com/Vincor. Gordian's seasoned field personnel will contact you to schedule a Joint Scope Meeting at the project site to help you and the Vincor Construction team agree on the details of the work to be performed. This meeting allows us to inspect the site and ask questions before submitting a Price Proposal, helping to eliminate the misunderstanding and mistakes that lead to most changes orders. This upfront, open communication invites suggestions for value engineering and often results in more cost-effective, collaborative solutions.
Detailed Scope of Work: Gordian's field personnel will help you prepare a Detailed Scope of Work that describes the work that we will perform. The Detailed Scope of Work will be sent along with the Request for Proposal to us.
Price Proposal: Next, our team prepares a Price Proposal by selecting the appropriate tasks from Gordian's Construction Task Catalog. Cost is determined through this straightforward equation:
TASK UNIT PRICE X THE REQUIRED QUANTITIES X
THE CONTRACTOR'S COMPETITIVELY-BID ADJUSTMENT FACTOR
That's it. No haggling. No extra charges. We'll submit the Price Proposal along with a construction schedule and a list of proposed local subcontractors.
Price Proposal Review: Gordian's field personnel will review the Price Proposal to make sure we have selected the appropriate tasks and quantities and will ask us to make any required changes. Only then will the Price Proposal be submitted for your final review.
Purchase Order: When you are 100% satisfied with the Price Proposal, construction schedule, and proposed subcontractors, you can ask the Vincor team to submit the required payment and performance bonds and certificates of insurance on your standard forms. If these are acceptable, you simply issue a purchase order for us to proceed. The construction is now ready to begin in a fraction of the time that you normally spend to procure a project.
