I am bidding 2 banks for them any experience with them I need to look out for???
For the last 2 years here in NC I have tried getting in with them with no luck. I guess they just throw away my letters.
Tough to deal with. Must have everything to the nine on paperwork. Never had problem with getting paid. Just had to deal with people inside behind a desk that only know outdoor maintainance thru a window
Dealt with them for 5 years doing banks. Wish I could tell you good things but not to many I can think of. Watch your pricing if you want the work they are strictly lowest bidder, at least up here anyway.
I know trammell lost one of there big account this year.
I was going to ask this very question but did a search instead. Anybody have anything to add? How do you go about getting started? Do they have a bid packet or what? Are their properties bid on every year?
Yes they have bid packets and they have all different duration of contract. Best bet is to talk to other contractors (in other fields) that do work for them and find out the name of the contact person at Tramwell.
They are a company that does facilities management for others. Their job is to manage buildings cheaper than the building owner could so they are all about price. Try to find the finance manager and get to know them as they are the people to please. Once you do you will be on the A list can be called often. Just remember to keep your overhead as low as possable as it is $ based. Most projects will have 1 manager but they will pass along good people to their coworkers.
Keep abrest of the financial news as they are doing BofA and with the merger with Fleet a lot is up for grabs.
they are good to work for. They pay if you do the work but you probably will not make much money on extras!
What did you guys do to seperate yourself from the competition so that TC co. would notice you and let you bid on their properties?
nice quote love it
