Hello, I would like to ask for some information from you all. I am relativly new to the industry and primarily do res and light commercial. I have an option to wire a new home upwards of 8500 sq feet. Most everything around here these days is 1/3 of that. just wondering if most of you bid based on a sq foot formula or try to get a speced out fixture list? or go with something like wall hole and ceiling holes plus fixtures as the customer specs them. I would really like to be competative in this but need a little advice on the bidding. don't want ot find out that i got the job yet was missing the last bid by 12k. thanks


I have worked as an apprentice and on to a journeyman in a general construction company. 90% of what I do is residential. I have an associats degree in electrical technology. I have started my own buisness this year and am with out the help of other electricians. this is why i find this site so helpful.
