Competition is increasing. In today’s world of HVAC duct fabrication, your company is up against not only seasoned competitors but working to win contracts in a world where the buyer’s expectations are more demanding every day.
Bids are expected to include estimates of ever-increasing accuracy. Your entire process must demonstrate reliable error reduction, the quality of delivered duct must be high, and cost-savings has to involve more than final price on delivery.
That’s where The Cincinnatus Group can help. Our job is partnering with duct fabrication shops to help them improve their game and win more bids.
We like to say we’re “called to solve, where others struggle.” We bring 15+ years of experience in the HVAC industry and our Advanced Partnering Services to your side. Our shop-drawings, coordination drawings, and 3D building information management (BIM) services help you set your shop apart from the competition. We deliver actual fabricator cost databases, cutting-edge technology, and time-tested take off workflows.
The HVAC duct market is growing, and with growth comes opportunity. The Cincinnatus Group is ready to help you dominate your marketplace.
When you’re trying to win bids, what are some key differentiators that contractors and project managers are looking for?
Experience is a big one. You may be thinking price, but there are so many ways for cheap ductwork to cost the project money that owners and managers want to know they’re getting more than a good initial price. Delays in delivery are going to cost them money. Imprecisely measured duct is going to cost them money. Trade conflicts on-site are going to cost them money. They’re looking for the experience that insures them against a disastrous relationship, regardless of the order price.
Quality is another prime factor. As an experienced fabricator, this is likely to be your core competency. You don’t just deliver a range of stock pieces in predetermined metals and sizes, you can meet custom specifications according to SMACNA standards with ease. Your duct lengths are precise, easy to assemble in the field, and you have all of the fittings and accessories too, so that the contractor doesn’t need to source components from two or more fabricators.
The use of advanced technology is becoming increasingly desirable. Project Managers are looking for experience in everything from Computer Aided Design and conflict resolution to Building Information Modeling so precise that every duct length has its place and fits precisely in that place without costly on-site adjustments and troubleshooting.
Taking off duct work is one of the most error prone and inefficient processes in our industry. It stands to reason that reducing errors in pricing, eliminating double data entry, and optimizing the process for fast turnaround will help you win more bids.
Today, construction projects, project managers, and architects want more than metal. They’re looking for installation models so precise, they minimize field alterations (saving enormously on labor). They want a visual, easily accessible means for architects, engineers, and owners to work together in resolving conflicts through coordination meetings.
These needs are answered by offering experienced Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Building Information Management (BIM) systems.
When you work with The Cincinnatus Group, our services can be white labeled under your brand, or our consulting experts can help you build up your own internal systems to match the same precision and quality of results we deliver.
