Member general contractors can create an online plan rooms

The Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) recently linked the Blue Book’s vendor database and BB-Bid, an online bid messaging and management system, from within its online membership directory,, which is located at its Web site.

BB-Bid will enable ABC’s general contracting members, through search filtering options, to send out invitations to bid to specified private vendors, ABC members, and Blue Book listings. The general contractor will also have the ability to create a private online plan room for its invited vendors to view, download, and order plans, specifications, and addendums.
