The proposal is an important part of the construction bidding process, where multiple construction companies will pitch a government agency, commercial, or residential client. Because construction projects require many different talents and resources to complete, construction job proposals can be complicated to put together. It’s important to cover the methods, materials, permits, equipment, and subcontractors so that all costs are presented transparently and the client has a thorough understanding of what’s required to complete the project.
A construction job proposal’s chief aim is to win over a new client. It should impress the client with its professional and detailed breakdown of the project timeline and costs as well as the company’s credentials and previous work. The proposal should also reduce the risks of client dissatisfaction and arbitration by clarifying the scope upfront.
A construction job proposal, also known as a bid proposal, should include details on the specific project as well as information about your company that will inspire trust. For best results, include these sections: cover page, cover letter, about us, team bios, customer testimonials, portfolio samples, project summary, project schedule, and fee summary. At the end of your proposal, add an e-signature page to convert your pitch into a legally binding contract.
The best way to send your client a proposal is to use proposal software that offers excellent email deliverability. When you click send with the software, your client will receive an email with a button that links to the proposal, which can be easily viewed and signed online. Proposal software also gives you visibility into all active proposals, client activity, and average closing rates for your company.
We don’t recommend that you send proposals as a PDF attachment. You would lose visibility into client activity and team closing rates, and you’d make revisions and e-signature collection much harder for sellers.

Yes! When your client signs this construction job proposal, it serves as a legally binding contract. Just make sure you’ve got a detailed scope of work and fee estimate. You should also include your terms and conditions or master service agreement. You can add that legal language directly above the e-signature fields or link to where they can be found on your company’s website.
