For a maintenance tech, what hom many hours do you expect him to produce in a typical 8 hour day? How about a foreman(crewleader)?

Foreman - 75% to 83% depending on how much winter work they are given.

Technicians/laborers on maintenance crew 80% to 85%. Travel time is recovered through overhead recovery markup. We charge maintenance T&M on a curbside basis, not portal to portal.

Laborers on bed maintenance and installation crews are 95% plus since their time is billed directly to the job or travel time is invoiced on T&M.

Overall company billable percentage is about 84% annually.
