How it works

Who provides documents?​

For the last 10 years, we have been displaying your plans and specs in our electronic plan room in alliance with the local construction associations throughout Canada. We are also a registered user of all tendering websites.​

Your tender notices are published in Daily Commercial News, Journal of Commerce, and in our project databases, ӰԺ’s Project Intelligence and Insight.​ċ

Every day, our team of researchers check online for new tenders and updates (i.e. bidders’/plan holders’ lists, addenda, bid date extensions, etc). We also call and email contact sources like yourself to validate project details when they are not available online – ensuring your bid information is the most accurate.​ċ

In addition, a specialized team continuously monitors the availability of documents to ensure plans, specs and addenda are uploaded in a timely fashion.​ċ

There is no cost to you​

How suppliers find you

We understand that the integrity of your bid document distribution process is important to you, which is why we mention in our Building Reports where your bid documents are available, their costs and other details, as per your specifications.​

In addition, the ‘view-only’ copies we host benefit you in the following ways:​ċ

  • Your bid documents go through an Optical Character Recognition and indexing process, which enables our customers to be notified of projects that contain key words of interest to them as soon as they are published.
  • Additionally, all documents are presented in a standard format based on the Construction Specifications Canada MasterFormat codes, which helps our customers to better identify projects of interest, so they can start preparing their proposals and quotes for you and your bidders.​

Comprehensive network

How is ӰԺ different from other electronic tendering systems?

Our unique differences

Publishing your tenders and bid documents on an electronic tendering system can get you access to prime bidders for your project, but there are so many other parties involved in assembling the prices and proposals you receive.

Trade contractors, suppliers/distributors, building product/material manufacturers and service providers such as facility maintenance and finance companies typically don’t have the time or resources to check every tender site. If we don’t have access to your bid documents, you are relying on your prime bidders’ limited network for competitiveness of the bid submissions you receive.

By ensuring that we have access to your bid documents, you can ensure that your project gets the attention of all levels of the construction industry through our unparalleled network the day it is published. This way, all potential participants get enough time to review your project, and your prime bidders receive the most competitive quotes.
