Hey everyone. I don't usually get job of this size, so I want to compare my profit ideas to yours. Most of my jobs are $10,000 or less, but this one is more than double. I'm working on a bid that has a break even point of $19,610.68--this includes everything except for what I want to make in profit. It will take my crew of 5 and myself 6 days to complete the job. Any amount of $4,000 and over satisfies me for profit in a week, yet when something goes wrong in planning a job this size, large bills are involved when simple mistakes or miscalculations are made. I want to budget the job right, and I budget for profit. My contract will include a detailed contingency clause that will allow for more materials in certain situations, but I do not like to put unknown labor in those clauses so my bids can be very close to accurate if not untouched. What would you guys profit with this sized crew in 6 days on one job? BTW the job includes... -remove a 20' long, 6' tall timber wall and replace with a 40' long 3' tall wall and an upper wall that is 35' and 3' tall. (Anchor Highland). 225 face feet. Material will be the mixed Highland (small, medium, and large). -13 tandem loads fill dirt -5 tandem loads sandy base top soil--spread, tilled, and fine graded before sodding. -Lots of grading and moving dirt (using large skid steer) -20 pallets 'tifgrand' bermuda installed -piping 6 gutter downspouts totaling 300' of trenching with skid steer -Removing (3) 40' tall trees -Excavating and installing a 125' long dry creek bed with river flats and (4) 150-200 lb boulders per 35' approx. -Relocating 4 irrigation heads, and raising 6 heads. -Converting 1 zone of pro-spray irrigation to drip, will include around 40 emitters. -Approx $300 + some for overhead cost of the break even is plant installation labor, and plants are not yet included in the final number; we'll probably spend $1,500 for plants. Either way, 6 days with 5 guys; what do you want to profit?
