I was contacted to do a job which needs a 24 inch diameter by 7 foot deep light pole base installed. Also reinforced with a rebar cage. This job also includes running about 200 foot of conduit and repairing existing wiring destroyed by a back hoe. The general wants a price but I'm not sure on pricing the pole base. Can anyone give me a direction on this. Thanks for any replies.
I'm with Golf Junkie. Unless you're good at concrete (I'm not), you're probably better off subbing it out to someone that is. I used to have them done for $600, and charge $800, or just exclude them as "pole bases by others." The company I work for now has some guys that do a great job with the bases (we do lots of auto dealerships, and they've had a heck of a lot of practice). One tip I've learned from them is to get the Sonotube off as soon as is practical. It'll save you lots of time grinding and sacking if you can finish it while it's still soft.

Thanks for the help guys. I worked a deal with the contractor that I would set the sona tube, rebar cage, stub in the conduit and provide the bolt pattern set up. He would provide the concrete, a big hole, and a guy to handle the finish. Worked out okay. I do agree with you guys: "stick with what you know and do best" Thanks again.
