Review and analyze the contents of the typical bid package, including the project manual, all specifications, contract drawings, addenda, modifications, and special instructions to bidders. Identify and resolve any conflicts between General Specifications, Mechanical Specifications, and Fire Protection requirements. Interpret requirements of all local building codes and standards as they apply to the project. Detail and consider all special requirements that may affect cost and company liability such as bonds, federal and state labor standard requirements, affirmative action, and "Buy American" clauses. Review insurance requirements and their possible effect on project costs. Examine liability potential on project performance such as scheduling, completion dates, and penalties. Compute quantities of materials, applying appropriate standard cost factors. Analyze labor requirements for each job operation, applying appropriate time element and unit cost factors.
