Dear John
I am sorry to reply your question.I am replying your question. Your company is not registered as per company law of the country.First of all you get registered your company and get the PAN, TIN and other formalities are required with the help of company secretary practioner .You wants to work as subcontractor with leading construction company.There are two options to work with leading construction company.
1.If the company is working with Bespoke contract then you will get the work with your work qualification and turn over of your company.
2. If the company is working with Govt.or semi Govt. organisation then work should be subletted with the condition of main contract after due permission of the client.

The Contractor shall not subcontract the whole of the Works.
The Contractor shall be responsible for the acts or defaults of any Subcontractor, his agents or employees, as if they were the acts or defaults of the Contractor. Unless otherwise stated in the Particular Conditions:
