Commercial Construction Planroom Services

VBX is a full service online construction news service that employs professional staff to locate, verify and track local construction opportunities from project conception to the point of occupancy. This information is amalgamated and made available to construction professionals via membership that provides access to a suite of services customized to individual needs.

VBX is service-oriented and politically neutral, neither advocating nor opposing the point of view of any particular segment of the construction industry. Our primary goal is to support the preconstruction process by acting as a source of timely, accurate and reliable information delivered to construction stakeholders in a useable format. Consequently, over 90 percent of our members renew their VBX membership annually, and over half have been VBX members for more than twenty years.

We collect bidding information from multiple sources, i.e. design firms, private owners, governmental agencies, prime contractors, etc., and organizing it so that contractors may quickly search for bidding opportunities by type, size, geographic location or other pertinent criteria.

Our staff maintains direct (personal) contact with sources to update information throughout the bid cycle. This ensures that prospective bidders are aware of changes as they occur and have accurate information prior to preparing their bid.

Our Services are interactive and dynamic. Information flows between contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, design firms and project owners in real time throughout the bid cycle.

We’re Local. It’s Personal.

Let us help you find and exchange information during each phase of the construction process.
