If your company requires our help to establish a specific scope of work, which is economically feasible & realistic for your company, and/or if you feel a scope of work is too large for your firm to handle individually, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Please advise us should your company require special accommodations with payment terms, bonding, or insurance in order to provide pricing for this project. Depending on the type of subcontract work, we may also be able to waive subcontractor bonding requirements to make it easier for your company to quote the work. We can also provide assistance to qualified minority businesses in need of equipment, loan capital, lines of credit, or joint pay agreements to secure loans, supplies, or letters of credit, including waiving credit that is ordinarily required. If establishing loan capital or lines of credit to purchase materials to be installed on this project is an impediment to your company’s bidding work, we will gladly work with your material suppliers to set up joint check agreements or assist in obtaining the same unit pricing as our suppliers to enable you to bid this project.


Wharton-Smith, Inc. will offer a “Quick Pay Commitment” to all MWBEs to assist qualified minority businesses with their cash flow, which means a commitment to pay MWBEs within 20 days after the Contractor confirms that the work has been performed & completed properly. Should the terms of this policy be unacceptable to your company, we will gladly negotiate terms; however, these agreements should be completed prior to the bid date.


Wharton-Smith, Inc. is willing to review any responsible quote & will negotiate terms, if appropriate.  Any other questions regarding this project may be directed to Nichole Voitel, 407-321-8410 Ext. 3622 or envestimating@whartonsmith.com.
