looking for a bit of advice on pricing, this could be the making of my business.

i have been asked by one of my previous employers (who no longer have sparks) to price up for works on a kitchen contract for 87 kitchens, virtually on my doorstep. All they are looking for is the following:

replace 3 double sockets

replace 3 single sockets

replace 2 20a D.P sw and low level socket

replace 5ft flu

replace 2gang 2way sw

replace 1gang 1way sw

replace 13a sw fuse (heating)

replace ccu and cco

test the kitchen circuits

The above is the minimum in each kitchen which is what the price is to be based on.

However there will be some "non-core" works ie. moving sockets/sw's etc. Been and looked at a few and this looks to easy as the 10 i looked at are only basic replacements.

I have priced this as individual items, but want to advise on what you guys/gals would price.

This could also lead to a further 3 contracts of 70/133/108 kitchens, again i've priced the 70 kitchens.

Thanks in advance

I have successfully won this contract, starts next monday, with 5 kitchens first week then 10 a week thereafter.

What i am wanting to know is, as its only like for like change, what test cert should i be issusing? They are asking for installation cert, but i reckon minor works or maybe even a periodic as i am not changing wiring.

When i have relocate switches and sockets, this will still only be minor works.

They are telling me their clients clerk of works are specifying EIC thou.

What do you guys reckon, don't want to rock the boat to much, so should i just issue EIC and record in the scope of works box accessories changed only?

thanks in advance

Congrats. with the contract

you could issue a minor works for the straight swops but you dont have to

but it would keep them happy

It appears that the clerk of the works doesnt know the requirements/documentation of Part P

maybe worth a chat with him.

Most definitely NOT a PIR! :| :eek:

a Minor works normally only relates to alterations on ONE circuit..

(you only have one area or the fuse rating & your circuit test results!)

as you would be altering sockets / lights / cooker circuits..

that would be 3 x MWC...? which you could do..

Or do an Inst cert... which would give you space to write all circuit results one cert...

HOWEVER saying that...

It still works out as 3 sheets of paper in my book!? ; \ ;) :)

Take you pick? ?:|
