Im bidding a retaining wall job, and Im looking for some help determining the hours, or days, for a 3 man crew to install it. Any insight is appreciated. I can determine my costs for equipment and labor, but the actual time to install the wall is where I often screw up. I realize it differs for every crew, but if you were looking at a job like this, for your crew, what would you consider a reasonable time estimate. Its 81 foot long, 440 square foot, (including cap and buried block), 5-6 foot high, Anchor Diamond Beveled face block retaining wall. About half way along the wall, the face turns out about 30 degrees, so there will have to be some cutting. At that point, the height also rises one block. Ive been assured a concrete pad will be installed along the bottom to grade, i.e. I should be able to lay the first course directly on the concrete. A minimum of one course of block will be in the ground. Geo grid, drain tile, ¾ inch crushed ledge backfill and a cap, glued in with construction adhesive complete the project. There will be no excavation on my part, and all the material will be placed close to the work area. Thanks in advance for any input.
