Register your project right away, whether you have already an architect or none yet, and we will do everything for you under a design-bid-build or design-and-build arrangement. Contact us for a free consultation.
You may also browse the Partner Showcase and look for inspiration, designers, and builders, which you may endorse to us when you register your project.
We will recommend a designer, depending on your need, either an architect or an interior designer. After the design is approved and the plans are prepared, our BuildPodd Deployer will initiate the bidding process for contractors. We will form the team dashboard that includes the designer, the supervising architect or engineer, and the deployment officer, which will also include the winning contractor.
After negotiating and agreeing on the best proposal, BuildPodd will ensure that the project contract will be properly documented for your protection. All permits and insurances or bonds for your downpayment and all contract documents will be complied with by the winning contractor for maximum and mutual protection of all parties.
You will receive daily or weekly progress reports and photos through your dashboard for evaluation if everything is on schedule and as per plans. You will also receive billings for evaluation before payment. When the project is completed, your contractor will upload into your project dashboard all the important documents like punchlists and occupancy permit, as well as retention bonds for the warranties.
The first critical decision to make is to determine the best way to package the contract. There are many options but the most common ones are design-&-build, which involves a contractor who can also do the design, and design-bid-build, which involves two separate contracts – first with a designer and another with a contractor. The best contract package is the one that is best suited to the objective of the project, the risks involved, the budget, timetable, and other factors. The BuildPodd Deployer will determine the best contract package for your project.
A uniform scope of work will be established after choosing the right contract package, to serve as the basis for the next process.
Under contract packaging, the project dashboard provides online tools like:
1. SOW (Scope of Work preparation)
2. RFP (Request for Proposals submission)
