I hate to sound mean or whatever, but this is not a "Free Estimates" Area.
I could be way out of line in saying this, but if we all submitted our quotes here, what sort of a place would we turn into?.
I'd refer this to the Business Area where they can at least give you a hand to calculate this.
Other side of the coin we have a Business Chat every Wednesday night, I've never seen you there.
Just my $0.02 worth.

I'm with Mike on this one. If you did get an estimate on the internet, would you really use it? Quote the materials to your supplier, and figure installation at your labor rate (including overhead)plus profit.

An explaination I am working on this job now and what I am looking for is just a time estimate for my own benifit. I work as a maintenance electrician am not useing this as a estimate fof biding. I think it would take 3 to 4 construction electricians 3 weeks that would be working 4/10s. It looks like it is going to take us 5 weeks working 5/8s . What do you think ?
