Playing a bidder for a fool. Not wise.

So they used my number. We value engineered a couple of things and pointed out deficiencies on the plan that they hadn’t noticed before. “Hey we just need to get some like shoring sorted out but we’ll be in touch”. “Hey I need to talk to you about your bid”. After numerous follow-up e-mails and phone calls by us they came back and said that corporate had decided they had enough men and machinery to do it themselves. I always hesitate to bid for companies who can do the work themselves but I trusted them and believed their story. At least until I saw it wasn’t actually the case. They used our numbers, our VE, our plan insights and gave it to another excavator. Construction doesn’t make me an idiot and if you’re going to lie you better get your story straight. Needless to say…no more bids.
