Executive Report From ProEst: Like any business, a construction company looks for opportunities that will drive revenue and deliver the best possible business outcomes. Winning bids and running profitable jobs can make that happen, but only when people and processes work smoothly from initial proposal to final closeout. As most construction professionals will tell you, that’s easier said than done.
