Tendering for construction and development projects always offers interesting challenges and clients and contractors facing uncertainty, lengthy selection procedures and complex regulations when tendering all add to that challenge. Often this experience and the cooperation between the parties involved are unnecessarily and needlessly difficult, especially when the goals and framework of the tender are not well or (at least) poorly defined.

To make the process smooth, seamless and effective a clear and concise vision of the construction project is required. IGG has made a specialisation of tenders and tendering and is actively involved in drawing up, overseeing the process and evaluating tenders on behalf of many major clients. Our tendering team is well respected and experienced – our record is impressive.

Effective tendering and selection?

The effectiveness and the right outcome of a tender process is fairly obvious in basic terms. A clear definition of the works, terms, goals and schedules which of course are unique to every project means choosing the right strategy and methodology coupled with attention to detail to eliminate ambiguities. There are currently many changes and trends within the construction sector in the Netherlands with contractors hungry for work and margins at an all time low. Whereas that may make tender prices very competitive for the client any uncertainty, variation, changes or any other chance to enhance the value of works to the contractor requires a fastidious control to reduce that risk. IGG has many years of experience of tendering, often for complex projects, and provides a tough, independent, professional framework for the construction of an ideal tendering strategy for your project. Our specialists will work with you from the beginning identifying, on the basis of your requirements the best tendering strategy, selection and implementation. As we guide and advise you so the process of bidding leading through evaluation to the letting final assessment must follow a clear, defined and meticulous procedure; in IGG you have an ideal partner.
