Evaluating the Submitted Bid

If you’re in the position of having to evaluate several submitted bids, our consultant begins with an evaluation of the submitted bid whether it is to your to-be-built environment? Is the process well-defined and thorough? Are the company’s technical capabilities and previous experience meet the requirements; and can their services meet both short- and long-term goals?

Announcing the Winner

In order to ensure transparency in the bid or tender selection process, we encourage full-transparency with all entrants when announcing the winner. This conclusion ensures that participants are provided with a definitive answer; and that they understand the critical factors on which the final decision hinged.

Signing a Contract

The signed contract document often includes the submitted bid or tender documentation. Additional elements may be included, such as timeframe, list of team members with their bios, educational backgrounds and certifications.

Payment for Agreements

Generally, construction project contracts fall into four categories:

  1. Cost Plus, which requires payment for labor and materials, plus an agreed-upon percentage for overhead and profit; all of which is invoiced periodically, during the project;

  2. Fixed Bid (or “Lump sum) for which a single dollar amount is affixed, and no ‘ups or extras’ are permitted;

  3. Time & Materials, the bulk of which is billed at a blended company hourly rate, and which can be increased by indirect costs, general overhead and material mark-ups.

  4. Unit pricing: this payment system is used when projects can be easily separated into measurable tasks (units) and required building materials.

I am very pleased with the services provided by Monika from MNA Quality Consulting. Monika brought the optimal mix of her knowledge, thoroughness, and real-world experience to develop our Health and Safety Program. She has made the consulting process easy, delivered the project on time, and surpassed the minimum requirements. I am excited about OneContact Integrated Facility Services now having a well-planned and excellent Health and Safety Program. This will help us move up to the next level. I highly recommend MNA Quality Consulting for your construction-related and SECOR/COR certification needs

It has been a great pleasure working with Monika. Her ability to influence others to achieve the team's vision is remarkable. Her endless support proved to be a great asset for any team out there that are looking for a great motivational supporter. Her knowledge brought upfront at the start of project and has been playing a valuable role since. It was a bitter sweet moment when the project was done and have to say goodbye to her as we all value her work very much.

FAQ

What is the cost of a structural engineer consultation?

When budgeting for a structural engineer consultation, figure that your overall investment will range between .4%-.75% of your total project build cost. MNA Consulting fee estimates are based upon the particular engineering expert(s) required for your project’s specific requirements. Once we gather detailed project information and requirements we will provide our fee estimate. Contact us to start the conversation.

How to tell whether I need a structural consulting engineer?

Consider that your building occupants’ safety, and even their lives, rely upon the choice of construction materials used and the weight loads that designed structures can withstand. These factors, along with the risk of damaged or destroyed property make your selection from qualified structural consulting engineering firms an important choice for disaster prevention.

Do you provide online structural engineering consulting?

Until the information age, structural engineers provided in-person consulting, MNA Quality now provides virtual consulting services via telephone, zoom and other electronic tools. This of course is dependent on the project basis, there are projects that give design freedom such as standalone new structures where our engineer will design based on the reported soil condition. Another time is when the support structure is needed in the existing building that needs an onsite visit to confirm the actual site situation in order to provide accurate design.
