Abstract [en]

This thesis examines the tendering process from the point of view of Swedish building contractors. The purpose with the study is to chart the decision process for the contractors during the tendering process.


The study is designed as a survey study. This made it possible to reach a wide base of respondents, not letting such factors as geography being an issue. The survey itself was characterised by a very high response rate compared to other similar studies.


The result from this study shows that former experience from similar projects, current workload and the clients economic condition are very important factors for both whether or not the contractor will bid for a project as well as the cost estimation and tendering price. Former experience from similar projects is also an important factor for the determination of the indirect costs. Furthermore the work of indirect cost determination is characterised by the view that site overheads in comparison to general overheads tends to vary to a greater extent depending on the project. The need for better methods for determination of site overheads is another study result that deserves to be highlighted. Finally this study shows that markup size for risks involved can be a tricky subject matter, especially for small building contractors.
