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.
