CM-491 Professional Bid Proposal Simulation
By Appointment, APPT
The goal of this course is to provide the Construction Management student with hands-on experience in a simulated bid proposal situation. The students will need to collaborate to develop a professional proposal binder including a company description, resumes, relevant experience, cost estimate, schedule, logistics plan, safety plan, Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC)process, Equal Opportunity Employment (EOE) policy, union/non-union labor issues, contract, sustainable initiatives (USGBC LEED), BIM strategy, and value engineering recommendations. In addition the students will need to develop Requests for Information (RFIs), and respond to Addenda, and simulated sub-contractor telephone negotiations. The students will need to assess each other’s strengths and assign traditional Construction Manager roles: project executive, project manager, superintendent, cost estimator, scheduler, and safety officer. Time management and public presentation skills are essential.
