A business plan, this should include the type and size of work wanted, prospects for the work, your company’s geographic home base and growth and profit objectives.

Submit current WIP (work in progress) schedule, examples of the largest and most impressive jobs completed to date.  It is helpful to include the owner’s names and address, the contract price, date of completion and the profit earned.
