I recently started my own project management/consulting company for commerical office interor only (not a contractor). for one of my clients i have been tasked with creating a high level budget for one of their upcoming projects so they can submit/receive a capax from there company. The finishes are standard commercial so metal studs with drywall/taping, HM frames, solid paint grade doors, tbar ceiling and ceiling tiles, electrical, hvac, painting, carpet tile etc.

My question is for each disapline what are the indusrtry standards for pricing per. ie. cost for stud/drywall/tape per lineal foot, painting per sq ft etc. Again I know there are many variables without a full drawings package but I am looking to create a high level budget.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

I will post the job on trusted pros once we are ready for rfp's.

Drywall- sqft

Doors - per unit

Ceiling - sqft

Electric - LF + required voltage increase cost

Hvac - unit flow foot

Painting- sqft

Flooring - sqft

Pricing everyone has their own pricing so you won't get an industry standard. Production is cheaper. But until you have dedicated sub trades of your own you really won't get a standard & pricing and if you're not offering your sub trades consistent work you won't stay with consistent pricing best of luck to yourself and remember don't get yourself into something that you yourself are unable to fix otherwise make sure you have a strong contract with your trades and your customers.
