Providing contractor outfits throughout the Lone Star state with an opportunity to learn of construction projects not yet attached to a builder, The Builders’ Exchange of Texas, San Antonio, recently announced it will launch BX Leads, an online reporting service for the construction industry, on April 1, 2002.

The pay service will allow contractors to receive news about pre-bid projects “from the Valley to Dallas, from Houston to El Paso, or anywhere in between” through weekly reports via the Internet. Until the launch date, contractors may test the service during a free trial period.

According to a Builders’ Exchange press release, the online service is currently tracking 600 projects at an estimated $13 billion in four regions: Houston and North, South, and West Texas. Search features allow the user to narrow listings by category, county, and estimated cost of the project.

Texas contractors interested in testing the service can call Lee Huntley at the Builders’ Exchange at (210) 564-6900.
