How can I find more construction projects to bid?

Posted online

The origins of The Builders’ Association were in providing a one-stop shop for helping contractors find projects to bid, and to this day, that service remains one of our most popular.
The Builders’ Association has on-site Plan Room facilities in Kansas City, Jefferson City and right here in Springfield where members have access to:

  • 200-300 projects available to bid at any given time.
  • Computers and large monitors for easy viewing of electronic documents.
  •  Large format scanning, printing and copying.
  • Plan Room Briefs to keep you up to date on bid opportunities.
  • Hard copies of select projects.

Builders’ knowledgeable staff is ready to assist, so come say hi!
Or, if you prefer a digital approach to the bid process, The Builders’ Electronic Plan Room (EPR) is your answer. Having access to the most current project postings whenever and wherever you are is crucial to growing your commercial construction business. As an EPR subscriber, can receive real-time updates to your phone or email about projects. Visit for more information.
