Example of a pricing by takeoff drawing job below
This could be a project with a total value of $17,000,000 with an electrical in the $1,400,000 range. Est. $6792.28
Example cost of an electrical bid remote estimate from Springfield, IL with 35 electrical takeoff drawings is
$6792.28 Breakdown. $173.44 x 35 dwg =$6070.40 + ($173.44 x 2 for Specs= $346.88) + $375.00 drawings copies
= $6,792.28 plus tax if applicable. Typically I ask for 50 % upfront to start in this case $3396.14 prepaid with a
remaining ballance due at final estimate presentation.
Please I can preprice most any job but not all, so you have a cost in hand before I start. There are a few jobs that will have to be
done on a hourly rate do to the complexity and if travel is needed additional cost are involved. Described below. The selected
estimating system used in the example is Vision EBM with EPIC material used quotes supplied by others and I add them in the job.
Estimating systems like Accubid, ConEst, Maxwell and McCormick could also have been used. Please feel free to view another
seperate job example of PDF files detailing the estimating reports, "Audit Trail, Extension by Floor or Building,Bid Summary, Job
Allocation Graph " with the Vision EBM program. This is located on my alternate website elecestimating.com the page link is
http://www.elecestimating.com/Example_Estimate.html These are similar to what I typically email at the end of the job or if I am
working in your office I can send you the program files provided we are both using the same estimating system or simply print out
copies. Please note drawing copies full set are an added cost as shown in example above.
Please take note "E" Drawings include any drawing that has electrical work on it not necessarily just the electrical but others like
site,demo,details,data,security,fire alarm and more as found also the specifications count as two to three drawings as they must be
included in the estimate. Drawings with multiple systems on the same drawing (example 1 drawing with branch power, data and fire
alarm) each is a seperate count treated as seperate drawings for pricing. Addendums count as one drawing each as they arrive at bid
time. Projects that have 36 plus electrical drawings are priced at $260.16 each as these jobs require more estimators and the bid due
date can be typically 4 to 5 weeks or less. A very narrow time line to get a large project estimate together. Also these jobs consume
more estimating resources from our shop thus are priced accordingly. Please call John Stanulis for questions on how this is used
All travel expenses are an extra charge if needed for an estimate. Typicals would be vehicle mileage,meals,hotel rooms,flights,car
rentals,parking meter/ramps/lots charges,tollway fees,internet access,cell phone charges. All Traveling time is also and added cost
based on the 1/2 of the hourly rate above. Estimate coordination, discussions,meetings beyond the actual prepration is also a
seperate hourly charge remotely or if in the electrical contractors office which is at the full hourly rate of $86.72 per hour.
