    Data Cable Labor

    Recently changed contractors and looking at the DB they are using, data cable labor looks wrong.
    All cable whether single or say 3 cables together have the same labor.
    So 7.4/m for all cables.
    I found where we should be adding labor to the first wire labor as you add more cables.
    So first cable is the 7.4, the adder for cable #2 is .25 and the third is .5.
    So the pull for three cables has 7.9/m as the total labor.
    Does that sound right?

    Thanks,
    Vic

      drops here are a third of that, including termination and certification.

      a flat rate of $125 ~ $175 is pretty common.

        We do them for no less than $200.00 per drop, and we'll probably bump the pricing up in the near future. $450 per drop would be some good times!

          everyone has their own pricing structure.

          many contractors are horribly expensive for some things and dirt cheap on others. the end result tends to be a wash.
