You bid, design, and build smart, resilient civil infrastructure, including some of the nation's largest projects.
We help you use data to know how projects are developing so that you can shape the opportunity.
Master the U.S. Market for Mega Projects
Wish to be a part of a $12 billion project in Idaho involving an estimated annual generation of 5.4 TWh? Or be involved in $2.5 billion airport expansion in Texas? Optimize your involvement in the nation's largest projects by knowing how these projects are evolving, from a regulatory approval, funding, and bid letting perspective.
Project developers, financiers, engineers, construction firms, field service providers, and equipment vendors are all involved bringing large civil infrastructure projects to market. Many additional stakeholders with sometimes conflicting agendas are in the mix, including public utility commissions, regional independent system operators / authorities, environmental agencies, NGOs, and local special interests. FirmoGraphs is building a map of this spiderweb of commercial and regulatory activity to help clients navigate towards sales opportunities.
Whether you design or construct significant infrastructure projects, one common thing that stands out is the following of the project lifecycle. From planning and feasibility analysis, through bidding, civil design and construction, and on through to the maintenance and operation of the project, these projects are complex and require seamless collaboration.
Operational Details: We track critical operating parameters for authorities running water, wastewater, transit, and power systems.
Capital Improvement Plans: CIPs are used by public organizations to forecast 3 - 8-year capital costs, funding, and timing for large projects. We carefully review 100,000s pages of CIPs from large municipal governments and transit authorities, curating data on 10,000s municipal projects, focusing on megaprojects with values as low as $100 million.
Win/Loss History: You can evaluate the history of wins and losses by contractor, with multiple year look-backs in many cases. This can help inform your future bidding decisions and whether and how to bid on a specific project.
Prime / Sub Relationships: By seeing who has bid together in the past, you can identify and evaluate potential future teaming partners.
Line Item Costs: In many cases, detailed bid line items, such as cost per yard of backfill or linear foot of electrical conduit, are available. Past line-item fees, considered on a regional or client-specific basis, can inform your future pricing decisions.
Real-Time Conversations: We curate public board meeting conversations that can inform you about bid award decisions.
Partnerships: Knowing the influencers matters, including city leaders and their strategic partners for service delivery. Our data can help prime contractors find the best subs and visa-versa.
We curate data, from 100s of sources, so that your team doesn't need to.
You access live navigable data rather than static reports that can be filtered according to your needs and requirements.
Our customers want to optimize their public bidding decisions.
Decisions on major bid events don't happen overnight. There are months or years of capital planning involved. If you plan ahead, you can anticipate and engage future opportunities, long ahead of receiving that dreaded cold RFP.
Our customers don't hate RFPs, they hate cold RFPs. The ones that they could have influenced, where the potential client did not take the best strategic approach to the market.
Armed with specific regional data, you have the opportunity to make better bid or no bid decisions. If you decide to bid, you can optimize your chance of winning.
