Vacany Sq. Ft Rate

Hello Everyone!

I need your assistance with this. I was asked to put together a quote for an Class A building. They wanted a price for their tenant space as well as their vacant space. They specified that they want a sq. ft rate for there Vacanct office space, because tenants come and go.

I was given a space of 9393 sq ft of vacant space... I estimate it would take 2.25 hours to clean (once a month). If I charge 2.25 x 25$/hour that's 56.25$ which works out to $0.00598/sq. ft. To me this number doesn't make sense. Does it make sense to anyone else? Am I missing something?

Essentially the goal is to apply $0.00598/sq. ft. to any vacant space as it comes up.

Damn, that's cheap pricing at less the $.01 per sq. ft.! You figured it out incorrectly. We used to clean a 100,000 sq.ft. building at $0.055 per sq.ft. which was ridiculously low at $5,500.00 per month. The sq.ft. price is based on 5 x per week cleaning. 10,000 sq.ft. at $0.10 per sq. ft. would be $1,000.00 per month for 5 x per week cleaning. Your price is approx. $0.13 per sq.ft. 9,393 sq.ft x $.13 = $1,221.00 per month for 22 cleanings. $1,221.00 / 22 = $55.50 per cleaning. I don't know who wants sq.ft. pricing for only once per month cleaning? That's pretty strange!
