When you load a project up on the BidCentral site, in the top right-hand corner of the screen you’ll see a link that says “Order Prints”. When you click on that link a box will appear and ask you to confirm. Once you click “Yes, order prints” it will notify the corresponding regional construction association and they will reach out to you to make arrangements for the prints.

Formerly the Subscribe button in the previous platform. The green Follow button in the top right-hand corner of each project allows you to receive notifications for any updates that happen. It also adds the project on your dashboard so you can access it easier.

Once you have loaded the project up, look at the Documents and Addendas tab. Typically you will find a folder called Addendas and you’ll be able to see the date that the file was uploaded.
Depending on the project, it will vary. Some projects will have a web-based online bidding platform. In those cases, there will be a link to click on that is located under Project Details -> Submit Bids To
If there is not a link listed there, most likely the instructions on how to submit your bid will be located in the tender documents located under Documents & Addendas
This is another new feature we’ve added. When you’re in a project, you’ll see a blue button in the top right hand corner of the screen that says “Share Project”. When you click on this button, it will automatically copy the link to the project onto your computer’s clipboard. From there, you can paste the link wherever you like (email, social media, instant messenger). Tip: Control-V will ‘paste’ the link to your email/message.

On the Bidders & Contacts section of a project, we will display a list of all the relevant contacts that are pertaining to the project. These include architects, consultants, known plan holders, confirmed bidders, and more.
Once you have loaded the project, you will see a tab across the top called Documents & Addendas. If your account has Premium or Enterprise access, or if you have purchased a one-time access to the project, you will be able to download and view the documents for the project.
Once you select that tab, you’ll see a list of the files and folders for that project.
You can download the files individually or click on the Download All button to download all the files at once. Please note: In Phase 2, you will once again have the option to View documents before downloading plus select specific documents to download at once.
