The Dodge Report
The Dodge Report is a comprehensive listing of Who, What, Where, When, How and How Much for a construction project.
At the top of the Report is the name and the Dodge Report number. Below you will find the Project Summary which contains all the information about the project and its status in the construction life-cycle. The address, Action stage, the date the project will bid or Bid date, the project's Valuation, the Target Start date and the Owner type.
The Key Contacts and Bid Documents section provides information such as the Architect, the Owner, the submission of plans and additional plan details.
The Structural Details section provides details about the structure including the number of buildings or units this project contains.
The CSI Information section provides information on the products used in the project. Each of the CSI categories is linked to the Sweets Network to provide immediate access to product research as well as suppliers. Just click on a category to go directly to that classification in Sweets.
The Bidders List section provides information on those companies who have either placed a bid on this project or are contemplating bidding on this project.
The Map section contains a map of the project’s location
. If the project does not have an exact street address, the map will show it by zip code. If neither a street address nor a zip code is available on the project, it can’t be mapped. For example, some road projects may span a number of zip codes, so an exact location cannot be given. You can zoom the map and optionally show nearby Sweets suppliers.
The term ITEM is an acronym which stands for Information on Trades, Equipment and
Materials. ITEM Reports differ from full reports in that they only deal with supporting features of
construction, rather than the entire building. The report may be specific to a building trade such as plumbing
or a piece of equipment such as electric generator, or material such as cement.
Sometimes the Valuation will be in the form of a dollar amount, e.g., $1,500,000. Other times, it will display as a letter, e.g., H. The following table explains what each of these letters represents:
