As a builder should I be seeking fee proposals and engaging consultants before a bid is accepted?
A. The Building the Education Revolution contracts require the participation of professional consultants as subcontractors to the builder. Collaboration between builders and professional consultants will be essential in all cases with minimum requirements outlined in Annexure Part F of the contract documents. It is anticipated that builders will engage consultants immediately upon being invited to bid, as the risk of not being awarded the contract is very low if the price benchmarks favourably against the Principal’s reference price.
