The architect prepares necessary detailed drawings that give an overview of the project. The drawings are adapted to the nature of the task and later form the basis for obtaining tenders from contractors. No working drawings are done. This step is important in the process to minimize mistake


Before the architect sends the project for tendering, the building materials of the inclosure of the building are gathered together with quantities. This gives a good basis for quotes from potential builders.


The architect submits the project in tender, after which the received tenders are evaluated and the suitable contractor found. It is the contractor who prices the work, and the architect is not responsible for budget or tender results.

Although the contractors submit tenders based on the same drawings and descriptions, there will be a need to review and compare the submitted bids to assess whether they contain unclear reservations or discrepancies between the project material and the tender submitted. In many cases, negotiations with the contractors and the adjustment of the offer are also needed. The architect prepares a draft contract and assists in the negotiations to a reasonable extent.
