Orientation

To get on Hoffman’s bid invitation list, please complete and return the Subcontractor/Vendor Questionnaire below.

I have been in construction for 30 years and never enjoyed a project as much as yours. I like coming to a job that is clean, well run, and where every major activity is communicated every morning to all the workers… other projects in South Lake Union are nothing like this. Everyone gets along here too! Craftworker feedback at the McKenzie Apartments project in Seattle, WA

Complete and return the Subcontractor/Vendor Questionnaire above to receive bid invitations from us. To continue to receive bid invitations, you must update the questionnaire every 12 months.

Most of our bid packages are available for all firms to bid without advance prequalification. Evaluation of the received bids will consider whether the successful bidder has the appropriate financial, material, equipment, facility and personnel resources to meet the contractual requirements and a satisfactory record of previous contract performance, quality, safety and integrity. Where advance prequalification is required for a specific bid package, we will advertise and/or contact potential bidders for prequalification information prior to issuing bid documents.

The required coverages, limits, and Additional Insureds are identified in Subcontract Attachment “B”. The sample Subcontract is included in the Request for Proposals.

We often utilize Subcontractor Performance Insurance in lieu of traditional Subcontractor bonding. Bonding may be required due to the size of the proposed subcontract or state law, e.g. Washington GC/CM work.

Subcontractors are required to comply with our Safety Program, including its procedures, practices and policies. Refer to the Minimum Project Safety Requirements or project‑specific Request for Proposals for additional information.
