I first joined Builders Exchange of Michigan in 1985 and my membership is a huge part of our success. I could not imagine trying to work in our industry without this tool!
The Builders Exchange of Michigan is a vital part of our company in getting job leads. Their customer service is tremendous! In fact, because of their desire to see their clients thrive, they personally called when a project was missed by our staff and made sure we saw it. We ended up being the low bidder on that job and it was the most profitable job we have had to date. It would not have happened without Builders Exchange of Michigan. We are glad they are a part of our team.
I love the updates that I receive every day of projects that are going out for bid. It is especially nice that I can use the filter creation tool to narrow down the projects that interest me. After seeing which projects are available, I am able to go directly to the website and view the prints. The easy takeoff tools make it easy to figure projects out.
Features for Subcontractors
Nightly reports sent directly to your email – with links to view full project information including the scope of work, bid dates and times, location, project contacts, and construction documents. Includes projects relevant to your unique specialty as well as every project we’ve reported on the previous day.
Our membership team will set up filters and track projects for you when you join – and send you a link to request training, even if you’ve been a member before. Your membership specialist will be available to answer questions during office hours and you’ll also gain 24/7 access to video guides about using our plan room.
For every project you track, you’ll receive an alert via email when a new addendum is posted immediately, so you don’t miss out on changes to blueprints, specifications, or bid information.
