Interest in “Bid Watch” Grows

Since its inception on February 3rd, interest in MBI’s latest project information tool has grown.  Over the last two and a half months, subscribers of BID WATCH have gone from 1,800 to over 2,000.  And this growth shows no sign of slowing.

For those of you who have not heard of BID WATCH, the service provides same day bid results sent to you via email.  And best of all, this additional service is FREE to all Plan Room subscribers. In the past, if you did not have online access, you would have to wait for the weekly Construction Update Newspaper to be delivered to you. We take away the wait.

Q: Am I a member of  the Construction Update Plan Room because I am a member of the Master Builders of Iowa? 

A: No. Membership with the Master Builders of Iowa is a separate service and a different membership than the Construction Update Plan Room. If you would like to join both the MBI and the physical Plan Room, a discount is available.  (Please Note: MBI General Contractor Members are automatically members of the Plan Room and do not have to pay an additional fee for plan room usage.) 
The Construction Update Plan Room Network operates out of ten locations and provides members with bidding information coverage in Iowa, Nebraska, Eastern South Dakota, and Northwest Illinois.  This is Iowa's largest bidding network with over 2,000 firms subscribing.  To view a map of our coverage area, CLICK HERE.
