Ross Orgera's insight:

My father owns a general contracting/construction business and is very knowledgable in the department. He also has multiple employees in which I can obtain important information from. Mitch, one of my fathers estimators, is helping me out with my project. He is giving me in depth steps on the proper way to bid a job. He is also helping me with the material part and the cost of them. He is going to let me help him bid on the next job so I can get hands on practice of how to bid the correct way.
