Hey Guys,
We primarily wire custom residential and do commercial and residential service work. One of our contractors wants us to wire a Philly Connection build out. I haven't done anything like this for a long time and would like some guidance on bidding. Here's the specs:

The building is 20 X 64 and is brand new, only wired with a couple of lights.
The panel has to be moved 6 feet and an additional 200 amp 24 circuit MLO has to be added(not a subfeed off the other panel).
2 RTU's
17 pendant lights
10 track lights
15 2x2 lay in's
Walk in cooler
16 sm appliance outlets on 10 circuits
general wall outlets and switches
Heat lamp
(basic kichen stuff, but no oven)
2 bathrooms w hand dryers
Wiring for 1 sign
Emergency and exit lights

Except over the cooking area, the ceiling will be open framing(metal).
All conduit connectors must be compression
Flex only to be used for short sections at fixtures and appliances.

If you can tell me how you bid this type of project and what your gut feel is on the project. Any input will be helpfull.
Thanks!

First question I would have is where is it at?

Is it in the city itself, or in the burbs.

City work would demand a nomimal surcharge for parking, security, theft, traffic and other minor inconviences like that. And if in the city, where at. Some sections are worse than others.

After working down there for a while myself, and hearing of my buddies stuff getting ripped off right in front of them, We don't do any work down there.

It ain't worth it.

David, how soon do you need this? I can work it up this weekend. I have the flu right now and all I want to do is finish payroll and get to bed.

We are slammed with light commercial right now. 50K sqft of retail and office space all steel stud too. One of the bays is a Subway so I have the bid in the PC.

I will email you with my new email address later.

Ron, I actually have to submit the bid in the morning. I wish I had more time, but the general is on a time deadline. Any "of the top" estimate. I have a high "safe" number to use, but I'd rather have something a little more accurate.

The job is in the northern suburbs of Atlanta, crime isn't a big problem.
