You then select one contractor at the end of mini competition stage to develop the remaining design in partnership.

Two Stage Mini competition (express)

Contractors are invited to submit a bid for your project based on two quality questions, set by you, and a commercial submission which is only based upon their fixed framework OH&P. At the end of mini competition express stage, one contractor is selected to develop the remaining design in partnership. This entire process only takes 1.5 weeks.

Single Stage Competitive Tender

Contractors are invited to fully price your project providing competitive quotations at the end of the tender period. commonly the design for your project is required to be at RIBA Stage 4 for a Single Stage Tender.
