What is buildsask?

buildsask connects the construction community – owners, architects, engineers, contractors and suppliers – with access to opportunity. As the largest online construction service provider in Saskatchewan, buildsask is the only service that encompasses everything from pre- to post-bid. The opportunities available on buildsask include:

  1. pre-bid database – forecasts future construction opportunities in realtime;
  2. plan room – projects in active tender;
  3. restricted access plan room – private projects in active tender; and
  4. lows & awards report – lists the top three bidders giving current market value of cost per square foot.

All project information can be published in one convenient online hub, with automatic notification of addenda and any changes in the projects. The information on the hub is utilized by more than 1,100 construction companies across the province and is managed by a team of experienced professionals.

buildsask is brought to you by local construction associations in Regina, Saskatoon, and Prince Albert; and, is supported by the Saskatchewan Construction Association and the Canadian Construction Association.
