Making a tender together

Subscribing to a tender is always a hell of a job for many companies. From experience we can say that the keywords work together and are the right questions.

No matter how you tender a parking garage, you build together!

Together you come to a parking garage that is optimally tailored to the environment and the end user. And together you come to an answer to questions such as:

  • Why do I want a parking garage with e.g. 500 cars? What is this based on?
  • What are the future plans of the area and how does the user move?
  • Is demountable building an option? Or is demountable building a requirement due to expansion?
  • Is there possibly a second-hand garage that fits the demand?
  • What does the infrastructure look like now?
  • What does the financing look like?
  • What does the municipality and the fire brigade expect?
  • What is the basis?
  • How do I unlock the parking garage?
  • How do I deal with routing? Does it fit in traffic?
  • How do I handle access control?
  • Maybe I already have a system that connects to this?
  • What is the most desirable schedule?

These seem very logical questions and easy to answer. However, in practice not all of these questions are asked. Logical, I think, because the customer or the contracting party does not build a parking garage every day. Naturally, there are also parties that can provide excellent support in this regard. Note that the most pragmatic questions are not skipped.

New legislation

A new European procurement law entered into force on 1 April 2013. This prescribes that a tender can no longer be issued for the lowest price. A good inventory of wishes and requirements and a decisive Action Plan are therefore becoming increasingly important for obtaining the assignment.

EZ Park has a lot of experience with tenders. Both European, multiple private, in a construction team and direct 1 to 1. Tenders based on price, but also tenders in which the Action Plan is an important part.
