Quick help on time and pricing.

1350 23
Someone just called and a job I bid a while ago was resurrected but they need a price ASAP, tonight. Apparently they waited until the feeders shorted or something. I know my material cost but the time frame or labor is what I want to check on.
Six runs of 2 1/2 EMT run across 5 stores thru sheetrock ceilings and drop ceilings. Bar joist are about 15 feet above the floor. Ladders and no man lifts. The runs are between 275 feet and 375 feet for a total of 2000 feet. It has been a long time since I did something like this so I am a bit nervous. 3/0 copper will be used. I have to replace the existing because the existing is over 50 years old and has sewer water coming out the fittings in the basement. This is why we are going thru the ceiling. I ball parked 320 man-hours does this sound right to anybody?

Are there firewalls you are penetrating?

I think running across the roof would be less manhours than going through all these businesses in the ceiling.

Have you actually looked in the ceiling? Is it a straight shot through the ceiling or is there duct work and "stuff" in the way?
