  • Publication number: 20200134710
    Abstract: A contractor bidding system gets initial bids with line items. The line items are combined to create a bid package template using line items from each of a plurality of initial bids from different bidders. Each trade can have a number of different items that can be included in the bid. Using the example of painting, for example, there can be supplies, stripping, masks, and the like. Other items might be included in the bid or excluded from the bid or alternates to the bid. The bid template can select which items are included in the bid or excluded from the bid so that when the final bids come they all include or exclude the same items.

  • Patent number: 10106968
    Abstract: A work table is converted to a portable sink by joining the work table to a faucet spigot for connection to a water source. A removable water plate has a rear wall that extends upwardly from the upper surface of the water plate. The water plate further defines an opening that directs liquid(s) (e.g., water) to a drain. The rear wall of the water plate is removably insertable into a space or gap in a back wall of the table or work surface to mount the water plate between the faucet spigot and the work surface. A cassette defining an internal compartment that leads to a drain may be mounted to a back surface of the back wall of the work table. When a cassette is so mounted, the rear wall of the water plate then may be held inside the cassette, slidably engaged between a rod support inside the cassette and an internal wall of the cassette.
