I'm bidding a job at a horse barn that will require me to run EMT. I do mostly resi. work with romex and was wondering how most of you would bid such a job. I normally bid my resi. work by the sq.ft. Is there such a way of bidding a pipe job? Or should I count all of the openings, add up how many lengths of pipe, etc.?
HELP!!!

The only way I would do it would be whatever time you think you will need plus materials. Since you don't normally do this type of work it might be a crapshoot.

I'm going to have to go to my code book for this but I thought barns had a pvc requirement due to acidity... (In Canada anyways)

I'll come back to this one.

Yes Smok, let me know. The plans that were drawn up showed it to be run in EMT. I did'nt notice anything or may have missed it in the code book.
