Bast Hatfield’s primary market sector is General Contracting, and in the past 30 years, the company has completed more than a billion dollars of General Contracting projects. This traditional approach to construction delivery is initiated when an owner commissions a design professional—an architect or an engineer—to prepare drawings and specifications for a construction project. A contractor is hired through competitive bidding or a process of negotiation.
This process is often used in New York State to procure publicly financed construction businesses, and if often referred to as "hard-money, lump-sum bid" business. Using this process, opportunities are publicly announced for bidders to make their best offer to complete the project, after carefully reviewing plans and specifications.
