June 7, 2023 Bid Talks: Door Creek Shelter Registration

The City of Madison Engineering Division is hosting virtual live (and later recording posted) sessions called “Bid Talks.” This is an opportunity for you to learn about the project to help with your bid and estimating numbers. During our “Bid Talks” session for this project, the project staff will present information about the project specific to your bidding process. Staff will answer any questions you have. You will also be able to see who is attending. This meeting will be held in a more informal format, where you’ll be able to ask questions and have a conversation. Please send your estimators and bidders to these Bid Talks, as they take the place of in-person site visits for specific projects. There may also be a site visit later in the process, but is project dependent. Registration prior is required. A recording link will also be posted to the project page after the meeting.
