The PlanHub Network

The Hub to Connect, Collaborate, and Grow

Take your business to the next level. With the ability to find leads on exciting new projects, and a huge network of subcontractors and suppliers — you have unprecedented power to take your business to the next level.

Expand your reach
A rapidly growing network with 350,000+ subcontractors in 397 key trades, as well as 4,500 suppliers already participating — and more joining every day.

Unlimited projects, unlimited ITBs
The engine that drives your business forward; the network that helps you uncover profitable new opportunities. Send as many ITBs to subs and suppliers as you want.

Connect directly
Gain direct access to the right people — with the ability to reach owners, subs, and suppliers within PlanHub. Now you can build profitable, long-term relationships and collaborate with ease.

Lead Finder

Unlock more than 3,000 hard-to-find private projects per month

No more scrambling to find leads. With PlanHub, quality leads come to you — so you can be confident that your business will keep going and growing, faster and more profitably than ever.

Discover
Automatically uncover leads and find the ones that are right for your business with easy-to-use filters, including project type, building use, ZIP code, distance and more.

Connect
Reach out directly to architects, developers and owners that have projects in early planning and design phases — over 99% of our projects have detailed contact information.

Collaborate
Get into the consideration set early, so you are ready to go when the project is funded and open for bids — and develop solid relationships that pay off short- and long-term.

Private and Public Planrooms

Centralize all your project documentation and choose who can view them

No more searching through stacks of files or messy papers, Planrooms make it easy to keep plans, documents and specifications for a project in one spot.

Private Planrooms
When you don’t want to open your project to everyone in the network, create a Private Planroom. That means only subcontractors and suppliers that you invite to bid can find your project, view project details and access project documentation.

Public Planrooms
Cast a wider net and create a Public Planroom, so subcontractors and suppliers throughout the PlanHub Network can find and bid on your project — to help you get maximum bid coverage. We’ll automatically send ITBs and other communications to ensure you get the bid coverage you need.

Custom Lists
You can upload your personal lists of subs, creating a list of what PlanHub calls “in-network subcontractors”. Invite all your in-network subs or only those within a mileage radius limit of a project location, or use special saved lists of your go-to subs.

Prequalification

Find qualified subcontractors with ease

With easy access to subcontractor qualifications you’ll manage risk and find the right subs for your projects quickly.

Extensive subcontractor profiles
Subcontractors on PlanHub fill out a detailed profile section answering questions requested most often by general contractors, including certifications and licenses.

Advanced filters for speed
Advanced filters help you search and find trades, geographies, certifications, and qualifications.

Find, save and communicate
Easily add subcontractors to your networks, message them directly, or send a group message. You can also contact subcontractors to request additional information.

Smart Coverage

Better tools for better bids

Now, it is easier and faster than ever to get the coverage you demand for every trade and every project. Smart Coverage goes beyond getting “enough” bids, it ensures you have enough of the right bids. 

Bid status at a glance
Right from your project dashboard, you can see an overview of your project’s bid status — which ones have no bids yet, which have 1-2 bids, and which have 3 or more.

Convenient search filters
Search the PlanHub Directory for additional subs in or out of your personal network. Filter by trade, activity, bidding status, location, certifications, qualifications, and more.

One-click invites and reminders
One click and all subs in your search results will be sent an ITB — and for those already invited, you can click to send a response reminder encouraging them to send their bids promptly.

Risk Management and Qualification

Manage risk and save time

With easy access to subcontractor qualifications you’ll manage risk and find the right subs for your projects quickly.

Extensive Subcontractor Profiles
Subcontractors on PlanHub fill out a detailed profile section answering questions requested most often by general contractors, including certifications and licenses.

Advanced Filters for Speed
Advanced filters help you search and find trades, geographies, certifications, and qualifications.

Find, save and communicate
Easily add subcontractors to your networks, message them directly, or send a group message. You can also contact subcontractors to request additional information.

Bid Leveler

Compare bids at a glance

Making decisions is simple when you can quickly compare disparate bids with Bid Leveler — a powerful and seamless way to ensure you select the bid that’s right for your project.

Apples-to-apples approach
PlanHub bids use a standardized format. Select a trade and Bid Leveler shows a view of each submitted bid in side-by-side columns — with key costs broken out into easy-to-scan line items.

Detailed line item comparisons
Understand how the numbers add up — for instance, labor broken out by task, materials with quantities and subtotals, and other items that are included in the bid.

Time-saving management
Streamline decision-making at every step. Track which subs have filled out prequalification forms and send reminders with a click. Like a bid to let a sub know they are in the running — or hide the bids that you’ve decided against.

Case Study

“PlanHub is one of the tools we use to help CCG expand into the new states where we have little or no presence… the quality of the bids is good.”
Alice Wise
Estimating Coordinator

Getting Great Bid Coverage
Helped Commercial Construction Group
Expand Their Reach

CHALLENGE

CCG, a design-build and general contractor company, was looking to expand into more states. The company had great coverage in North Texas, but in order to keep growing, they also wanted to get bids beyond Texas.

Maintaining a database of subcontractors manually was tedious and time consuming. With an industry-wide bid shortage and overworked subs, it was hard to get quality bid coverage — especially in areas where the company wasn’t well-known.

SOLUTION

PlanHub gets projects greater visibility to subs across every trade. With more than 350,000 subcontractors, the average project posted to PlanHub is sent to more than 4,000 registered subcontractors to bid. 

That means CCG can get excellent bid coverage from qualified subs at lower costs — automatically, without the time and effort of doing it all manually. And, CCG has a dedicated customer success manager that is always just a phone call or email away.

RESULTS

More Bids, Time Saved & Better Coverage

  • Full bid coverage from quality subs
  • Successful expansion into new states
  • Time savings redirected to driving business growth
