Everyone I deal with says they need prices immediately and the are going to move on it ASAP. Then the jobs sits for 3 months and then they call you and you have to reprice.
What I have done in the past is run the EMT in the bar joist rather than under. I could push 100 feet from one location and strap it down when done. What got me now concerned is what people cautioned about, duct work and other obstructions. I usually keep log books of the jobs I do for future reference and what problems arise and how long major tasks actually took but I did a major office cleaning and things got thrown out. Like the old Atlite trims that sat on the shelf for 30 years until I thru them out. Four months later an electrician friend of mine needed two.So are you going to use factory bends or are you going to bend it? I'd be using factory bends. I'd rather make the money for the labor for bending than give it to the factory, but there will be less scrap and less temptation to get artistic, less chance of things going south.
Is this mostly straight shots across the back of the stores, just under the bar joists? If so that part is pretty easy to estimate.
Depending on the construction of the demising walls between tenants, the penetrations could be easy if it's a single block, hard if it's some bunker type construction.
I would see the big unknown the last 50' of each run.
Don't forget to check current pricing on your JB's, LB's, mogul LB's, and C condulet bodies carefully.
Put an expiration date on the quote, put an escalation clause in there, etc. etc. cover every eventuality just in case.
That is exactly what is happening here. The sewer water leaking out of the fittings has been going on for years. I looked at this last fall. The original electrical contractor used EMT in the sand below the slab so it seems after 50 years, everything rotted out. These things don't fix themselves.Everyone I deal with says they need prices immediately and the are going to move on it ASAP.
