Gulf Coast Project Center is the new and improved technology behind Daily Journal of Commerce – Gulf Coast. It is a personalized lead-generation database that helps construction and design industry professionals, as well as the suppliers and service providers that support them, from across Louisiana and Mississippi, find upcoming bid opportunities. The platform enables access to proprietary news and data to help with your business development efforts.

Gulf Coast Project Center is a collaboration between Louisiana’s premier business newspaper New Orleans CityBusiness and the construction division of its parent company, BridgeTower Media


We are committed to providing the information leaders need to grow their businesses. We do this through our 25 B2B business publications, the connections we facilitate at the 300 business events with more than 30,000 attendees we produce each year and our lead-generation products and services like Gulf Coast Project Center.

Gulf Coast Project Center is an online database of construction bid opportunities that provides members with all the information they need to secure the work. Here is what makes us different:

Real People & Real Relationships
Our trained staff of project reporters work with public agencies, non-profit organizations, general contractors, architects and private developers to identify thousands of upcoming projects in the region. Our team determines and organizes the most important information, including scope, category, industry, requirements, considerations and key contacts. Our process ensures the most timely and accurate information. As the official trade publication of record in our markets, we’re often the first official source of a new project and work directly with the project owner to communicate the latest project information, documents, addendum and bid results. We maintain two-way communication with members that lets you tell us what type of projects and locations you’re looking for.

Exclusive Information for Deeper Insights
We supplement our project leads with required documents, breaking industry news, company profiles and exclusive data produced by our business publication New Orleans CityBusiness. This provides more information about the projects and companies you’re tracking on our platform. Members get access to our news content, data and industry events. For example, if you’ve identified a general contractor prospect, you’ll see projects they’ve worked on, stories we’ve written about them, and data we’ve collected on them. This includes executive contact info, number of employees and areas of specialty. Our regional approach and infusion of content and data to your business development process mean you get the information you won’t get anywhere else.

Personalized Technology
With decades of experience working between contractors and project owners, we’ve seen the limitations of most project databases. Based on the expertise of members and project owners, we built our platform to offer members the most personalized experience on the market. Our platform lets you set preferences based on location, type of work, specialty and desired clients or partners. When a new project meets one of your preferences, you are notified by a personal daily email each morning, which includes new projects just for you, updates to projects you’re tracking, projects bidding soon, recent bid results and the latest news. Our platform lets you dig into the details of upcoming and historic projects or let relevant leads come to you through your preferences. This enables you to spend less time searching around for new projects and more time building our communities.
