Sample forms for the following Construction Management documents are contained herein: SUAM Appendix D, Project Administrative Reference Manual, and Contract General Conditions. All links on the Construction Management web site to "Sample Forms" will automatically take you to this page. Due to the special nature of the Labor Compliance Program and the CSU Builder's Risk Insurance Program, we are maintaining those sample forms on their individual sites and not here.
All of the forms are categorized according to the construction phase for which they are used. The legend defines column headings and provides quick links to the nine main sections of the table. To download sample forms for the construction phase(s) you require, go to that particular column heading, scroll down the page and download any form with an "x" showing in that particular column.
In some cases, a specific document may use a different form than the standard form, and it will immediately follow the standard form. The "x" will appear in the appropriate column and adjacent to the non-standard form. For example, the Schedule of Values form is standard for all documents except for the Contract General Conditions, CM at Risk version, so "Schedule of Values" is listed first, and an "x" appears in every column except CMR (CM at Risk). Following "Schedule of Values" is "Schedule of Values_CMR", and the "x" appears on that line in the CMR column.
Construction business proposals are used to help contractors get jobs and are used for bidding on request for proposals, or RFPs. All construction proposals have a similar structure, whether you are bidding on a construction project, giving a quote for a plumbing service, or describing your painting services to a commercial client. Outline your proposal before you begin to write it, and print the final product on your letterhead stationary.
The executive summary section tells the reader why she should hire your contracting business. Demonstrate that you understand the client’s requirements for the job. For example, summarize the client’s needs by explaining the statement of work and give a description of what your company plans to do. Explain how your company is going to accomplish the work. A house painting company may describe painting specific rooms or provide site details about stripping kitchen cabinets.
Highlight Your Services
in a section entitled “Benefits” or “Services Provided," you will describe the benefits of using your construction business. The customer is interested in what you can do for him. Focus on the highlights of your construction business. For, example if you have experience building patio decks tell the customer in your proposal about the features of the previous decks that you have built. Provide photos of your past work. The customer wants to know about the jobs that you have done that are similar to this project and how well you have performed on them.
Describe the Cost
In the cost summary section of the construction proposal, give a summary of the cost to the client, including labor, materials and equipment. Write the timeline to explain when you will be finished with different stages of the project. Give a complete schedule and finish date and Include an equipment list and your safety record.
Resume and Experience
Write a detailed description of your construction company, the experience you have and the date you established the company. Provide names and addresses of some of your prior clients. Provide the client with the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all people you can use as a reference. Include with your proposal a list of resumes of key personnel, including personnel on the job, contractors, painters and electricians. Include photos of key staff in the proposal. Include professional resumes for all senior staff.
