Make Your Bid More Competitive

Do you need to gain an edge on your competition for your next steel fabrication project?  If you answered yes, then you should consider partnering with Anatomic Iron Steel Detailing to help you land that next contract. Today’s competitive business landscape can make acquiring the projects you want more difficult than ever before, so that’s why it is important to have some kind of edge that sets you apart and catches attention. Did you know that Anatomic Iron can help you gain that edge?

Value Engineering

One of the main strategies you can use to catch a potential customer’s eye is value engineering. With this process Anatomic Iron comes alongside you as you bid on a set of drawings, and we offer an engineered solution designed to meet your customer’s needs at a price lower than expected. There are a few different ways you can find savings and submit the best possible price to your client for consideration. Finding a way to use different sizes or lighter steel members that allow you to consolidate crane picks, for example, could net a hefty savings all on its own. Simplifying fabrication by using different types of connections – switching welded connections to bolted connections, for example – is another way to save money. Remember that it’s important to ensure you’re still meeting the customer’s requirements, but you’re doing it in a smarter, more affordable way.

Anatomic Iron’s Expertise

As an experienced steel detailing company, Anatomic Iron Steel Detailing understands how to efficiently assess a set of drawings through a cost benefit lens in order to identify how the same results may be achieved in a more cost-effective way. We’re ready to work alongside you as you begin the quoting process to identify value engineering opportunities. Once we have a savings estimate, you can either pass that along to the client or keep it – either way, you can rest assured that you’re getting the best possible price with a design that is solid and meets the client’s original specifications.

Bid-Build and Design-Build Projects

Note that we can work with you to identify savings opportunities whether the contract is a traditional bid-build or a design-build; however, we can be especially helpful in the latter. We will agree to bid exclusively with your fabrication company and work with you to modify the design so that you can present your most competitive bid. Consider us a partner with the skill and expertise needed to help separate you from the competition.
