Big School Bid HELP

Long time since weve bid these but I guess with the way things are we are all probally bidding out of our comfort zone.

two story 320,000 sq.ft. high school Final clean .10 sq.ft = $32,000
190,000 vct one coat sealer 4 coats wax burnish .10 sq.ft. = $19000
3,750 sq.ft. carpet (vacume) included in Final Clean
20,000 sq.ft. glass no lift needed in and out included in Final Clean
Maybee profit $15000 to $20000

Any insight to help calm my nerves?

Wow! thats some serious numbers, plus that kind of helps me out too with my bid on a 120,000sqf high school. Only thing I can really say is if it dont feel right to you than go over it and see what you can reduce!
I really hopes this helps.

Make sure to factor in equipment rentals or purchases needed into your pricing as well. If the numbers scare you, run the numbers by the sq ft & by the hour for the final cleaning.

The floor care is where the $$$ can be gained. Look into propane equipment and a wide area floor wax dispenser. It can cut down on your labor = higher profits.

You may want to revisit the carpet vacuum line item unless it is extremely dirty or you have to clean by HWE or encapsulated.

Windows can be priced individually.

Also, have a line item for hour rate for recleans and the GC /super/or their agent must sign off on completed tasks. Redistribution will eat into your profit quickly.

But this should be a big boost to the company financially if you win the bid. Good luck.
