We are looking to have a job sub contracted out to pull, terminate, and firestop cat 6 drops.  All the materials are provided for the sub contractor so all that is needed is labor.  Located in upstate ny, looking for a ball park price per drop.

I'm not responding to your inquiry directly, however, something you asked for interests me. I have seen a trend in our requests for pricing over the last couple years that is fragmenting our process to a "per drop/per foot" pricing for labor only. I am curious if you have priced a project in this manner and if it was financially successful. We have priced on per drop/per foot basis when it includes material and have been successful. The labor only element has been a challenge for us and a few other cabling contractors I've spoken with.

It appears you want to cut cost, not knowing construction and lengths it would be difficult even with material supplied. If it is just single drops (one cable per outlet) with typical 8' drop ceiling title you can look at industry avg of 2 hr per drop (150' or less) for labor call a few local ITS contractor to cut down of travel time and dispatch charges. Don't be dispointed if they are not will to jump at the offer because of the size and you suppling everthing.

We have done a lot of this over the last 3 years and been very successful at it. We have done this all over the continental US. New construction is going to be a lot more difficult to price this way because of the on and off again schedule.

The jobs where we have done this have been upgrade projects for campus enviroments where we have crews onsite for at least six months, in many cases its over 18 months.

If you are looking for pricing for a small project, ie less than 500 cables, you will be hard pressed to find a contractor that will be willing to do provide a labor only that is reputable.

If this is a project of substantial size, please contact me and I can give you pricing.

For reference we use an average of 1.5 hours per cable for a check when we bid jobs. at $55 an hour your looking at about $80 per cable labor if there are no racks or other additional equipment to be installed. in todays economy it would be hard to believe any contractor would turn down any job especially with large projects being bid between 9-13% margin.
