Frequently asked questions about construction proposals

What is a construction proposal?

A construction proposal outlines the scope, timeline, and cost of a construction project. It’s sent by a contractor or construction company to the client in order to win their business. Construction proposals are more frequently sent for commercial projects but can be sent for residential projects as well. Anytime you want to clarify your pitch and stand out from other companies, it’s a good idea to send a high-quality proposal.

What is the purpose of a construction proposal?

A construction proposal’s main purpose is to win over a new client, usually for a commercial project. But a great proposal should accomplish a couple of other goals as well. It should clarify the scope of work to accurately set expectations and include legally binding signatures to protect the construction company against arbitration.

What should I include in my construction proposal?

Construction projects can be risky, costly, and drawn out. As such, clients need to trust your company’s ability to complete the project with integrity—that you’ll do everything you can to stay on time and under budget.

A detailed, well-thought-out proposal demonstrates that your company cares. To win over new clients, include all of these essential construction proposal sections: cover page, cover letter, about us page, team bios, portfolio, project summary, project phases, and project costs. Together, these proposal sections will help position your company as the top choice for the job, while outlining project specifics in a professional manner.

What's the best format for a construction proposal?

The best formal for a construction proposal is an online document viewed in a web browser. This format makes it easy for clients to review and sign your proposal, and make a deposit payment upon signing. Online proposals are superior to PDF attachments, which have to be uploaded and downloaded and are very difficult to update when clients request changes.

You can send online proposals with Proposify, a proposal software that gives sales teams consistency with their content, control over the proposal process, and full visibility into all client activity, current deals, and proposal stats.

How do I edit this construction proposal template?

You can easily make this template your own. Sign up for a free 14-day trial of Proposify so you can alter this template and send it to your client. Update the proposal branding with your company’s logo, fonts, and colors. Then, add company-specific details like your company bio, team member names and bios, and licenses and credentials. Finally, update all of the project details including the breakdown of work, timeline, and fees.

What are the benefits of using Proposify to send proposals?

When you use Proposify, you completely transform the way your sales team manages proposals. Sales leaders gain control over the content. They can provide company-approved templates and snippets so all sellers are sending on-brand proposals. And managers can also review proposal analytics and open proposals to get a good handle on upcoming pipeline and address any issues with important deals.

For individual sellers, Proposify offers much faster proposal creation, client reviews, and revisions. And for clients, it’s easier to read, comment, sign, and make payments.

Do I need to send a separate contract?

No! When you use Proposify as your proposal solution, you don’t need to create a separate contract. You can turn your proposal into a contract simply by adding e-signatures to the end of the proposal. These e-signatures are legally binding. It’s important to include details on what your client is signing off on, so make sure the project scope is accurate, and consider adding a list of excluded services. You should also include your terms and conditions or a link to where they can be found on your website.
