Need Pricing Help

Right now I am in charge of a Dr.'s office that is 10,000 sq ft and I priced it at $0.19 a sq ft.

I now have the opportunity to handle a Golden Corral Office Building that is 150,000 sq ft and I have no idea how to approach this. The office is cleaned 5 days a week and it is actually two separate buildings that are 5 stories each.

I want to maximize my profit on this building but keep it realistic so if anyone can give me some advice it would be great.

1.) How many workers would this take?
2.) Should I lower my sq ft rate because of the size of the building?

Thank you!

You would be looking at around 25 to 28 hours per night of cleaning. This rate would of course be at high production with team cleaning. Depending on how many hours you want each of your cleaners to have that would determine how many people you will need.
And yes, as a general rule of thumb, the bigger the building the less you would charge.
What area of the country are you in? Your price on your current building seems a bit high.

The $1900 you are getting for the doctor's office, is that per week?

Also, if you figure each worker normally would work 2000 sq ft per hour, you would probably need a staff of 10 workers.....10x2000 = 20,000 sq per hr x 7.5 hrs = 150,000 sq ft per night.

This is assuming you will be using the same 10 workers every day. In reality you would need more workers since all can't work every same day.

Good luck.

Where do you come up with a figure of 2,000 sq ft per hour?
