Periodic on church

Postby Elec Rich » Thu Apr 26, 2007 10:36 pm

Has anybody ever done a periodic on a church, if so maybe you could help - I have to do a quote for a periodic on a church that has 80 circuits 65% are labelled up well and 35% are labelled poorly or not at all. Has anyone got any ideas of what I should quote or a per circuit rate? Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, & I 'dipped-out' badly......
ask yourself why so many circuits? I found that almost every light in VERY high ceiling was on own circuit, in pyro and difficult to get access to test loops etc.
I would n't want to do it for less than £20/ct. plus a charge for certs as you will find you need several sheets of results & hours tracing unmarked circuits.
Why not suggest to cut costs the church wardens try to find out what the circuits do first and label them, regards SPARX
