Our Bid Process
H.L. Wiker has the ability and the resources to handle a wide range of excavation and site preparation projects. Our bid process begins with a comprehensive analysis of existing site conditions and site plans. We then utilize advanced technology to determine the materials, equipment, and work force necessary to complete your project. Risk management and safety procedures are also analyzed and this information is used to prepare a detailed bid package.
Our estimating team members have many years of combined field operations experience. This knowledge and experience, combined with the analysis of site conditions and plan details, helps us to identify cost-saving opportunities and ensures the accuracy of the bid package. As a result of this process, we provide customers with a thorough and complete bid package including detailed information about the project’s scope of work.
Our Comprehensive Planning Services
Our focus on thoroughness and quality continues throughout your project. At the start-up meeting, the project's scope of work and plans are reviewed and the job manual created by our estimating team is also discussed. This manual contains detailed information about your project and transforms our initial planning process into the working document that will be the road map for our field operations team.
A schedule is developed and field personnel and equipment needs are coordinated. Before we move any dirt, an on-site preconstruction meeting is held involving all key individuals including state and municipal authorities. Our goal is to ensure that appropriate communication among the various parties is maintained from project start to completion.
Following the start-up and preconstruction meetings, the job is turned over to field operations. All necessary preparations are finalized including the mobilization of equipment to the job site and marking existing onsite utilities. At this point, we are now ready to perform the work necessary to make your project a reality.
