            What kind of answer were you looking for? Just whether there were considerations taken and some amount was added to the bid/other agreement or did you want complete profit/loss details as they relate to this particular task?

              We figured we though it would be about (2) guys a 4 hours each to install the strut and display. We looked at all the structural details and arch drawings. Got the weights and dims and came up with our hours.

                thank you....and that's the way I would have done it.

                Once I get the job...I would take those labor/material dollars and compare it to a rigger's quote. Anytime I can put the liability on someone else, I will

                      I know. Used to be mostly for electric, HVAC, plumbing, and a few other specialties, but anymore they sub nearly the entire project.

                        Why bother with Genie or forklift unless you already have one?

                        Riggers would install their ceiling attachment points then hoist with block and tackle, chain hoist, or winch.
                        Cheaper (and much safer) than trying to balance something 8ft wide on an unstable Genie... especially if more than 8 feet off the floor.
