Im bidding a remodel job (commercial) that shows a bunch of receps relocated , some within 3' of original position. There is no indication at all that justifies tearing a wall apart, rerouting circuits etc. just to shift a device a few feet, example- general wall receptacle, or office area wall behind customers who sit in front of an agents service desk. I'm just curious if I should include in estimate to do as plan shows or skip it to be competitive. Another question I have is the plans specify each sub responsible for cutting and patching walls, and I have lots of that to do, so should I exclude any repair in my bid? They want a price by thursday for me to even have a chance, so I dont have time to get a sub's estimate for drywalling. Secondly, that just doesnt seem normal, at least not in my little experience.

I would bid it per spec and drawings and then I would give a deduct if they would except the outlets where they are within 2 to 3 foot where shown

If I did not have time to get a quote from a drywaller then there is no way that is included in my bid

Thanks guys, I contacted the GC this morning and he made it clear that he was handling all the drywall. Better safe than sorry.
