wbell Approximately 3 to 3.5 hours with 2 people every night.

=JT= So how many people are you going to be having on the job with you? I did notice that you said its a nightly job. It will take about 5 hours a night?
11-15-2008 04:08 PM
wbell Correct...
11-15-2008 03:55 PM
=JT= I dont have any experience with large places and never have bid on a price per square foot before, but when you say .095 per sqft. you mean x20,554 sqft for the month? So your monthly bill is going to be about $1952. ?

wubb2005 May I ask how many hours a month you have in this job?
11-15-2008 12:59 PM
wbell .095... selling point was that he needed better service, which comes with a higher cost. He understood and was willing... SO far we have exceeded their expectations and they are extremely happy.

Thanks again!

=JT= So what was the final price on your bid?
11-03-2008 07:00 PM
wbell Just to follow-up... I got the contract. I ended up being a little higher, but after he checked my references, he was willing to pay a little more for better service and results.

This will lead to more opportunities as they own/manage over 300,000 ft of space in my area and continually build more as they win proposals.

Pay scale was in line with when I was thinking. The previous provider was being paid around .08 a sq. ft... national chain.

Thanks to all that replied!

Commercial Bid

I am assuming approx. 5 hours per night of cleaning with labor costs about $13.00 per hour or around $1,300.00 per month. The amount left after expenses would be owners salary.

What kind of wages is that based on? Just wondering. Also, profit is figured AFTER Owner Salary.

I agree..I took on a restaurant that only pays $200 a week for the front of house. Knowing that it would soon lead to more accounts, which it did I know have 3 more of the same restaurant paying $500 each

wbell Yes... daily cleaning. 4 full (2 stall, 2 sink) bathrooms, tile to mop (over 200 sf) plust dusting, trash, vacuuming. Essentially full service.
10-16-2008 03:00 PM
wubb2005 I looked back at what I think is your original post on this. Is this for daily cleaning? How many days a week is it?

Commercial Building bid

hello all... I posted a couple months ago about an opportunity to clean a commercial building. I lost the bid, but they have called me back. I originally bid at .16 cents a sqare foot (20,554sq ft), but found that they were paying, and still are, .09 cents a sq ft.

Anyone been in this situation before? This is a competive bid... I expect they would be willing to pay a little more for better service, but it would be in the .10-.105 range.

With paying expenses, OH and labor, I'm left with a few hundred dollars per month. Is this typical for the commercial building arena?

The upside is they are a general contractor as well which would lead to opportunities for construction clean up and susequently more buildings.

Thoughts?

Thank you!
Wil
