Just been pricing up a job to provide lighting onto a buliders yard roughly 50msq and supply from SWA ran from garden centre to yard, SWA has already been put in perviously. What are your opinions on costing?

I have priced to connect up power from the main garden centre to your yard via a single phase meter to show how much electricity is being used as requested and also provide an isolation switch at origin of supply.

I will provide an outside enclosure with 100A Main switch and supplying 2x RCBO's 16A & 10A for sockets and lighting supply this will provide power to an outdoor 240v twin socket and power to two 500w Flood lights with PIR for security and in each 3 corners of the yard provide lighting from three 150w metal halide flood lights.
Power to the lighting will be from an SWA 1.5mm armoured ran around the yard and at each point terminated into a IP rated box and then to the flood, floods attached to the trees in each corner will will be situated high for maximum coverage and will be supplied via FTP cable on small cable tray up the tree.


Materials Costs - £696.05

I cant really assist too much as the prices mean nothing to me as we dont know your hourly rates etc.

Are you thinking 4 days work for 2 men? or there abouts?

Also materials + markup?

Edit by men i mean electricians...

Isn't FTP cable network cable?

How big are the trees? You're going to have to make sure the part of the tree is pretty substantial, such as the trunk. Those halide fittings will be in bits in no time otherwise.

Ha FTP good spot it is FP! As for the lights they are mounted on some LARGE trees with big trunks yes!
4 Days to connect up and lay cables and test out?
Yes 2 men for 4 days?

I originally had £1440 labour?

Well i would only say on the heavy side for labour as really I wouldnt be expecting to pay for 2 electricians on this job, more like 1 man and a mate/apprentice.

However for 2 sparks the price seems fine.

I'd be wary of attaching the floods to trees, they have a habit of growing their bark around any fittings and either dislodging them or pushing them out. In some cases the fixings can also kill the tree in that area.

I'd be very wary on using FP outdoors, especially if its going to catch the sunlight. Seen it a few times where it just doesn't survive the climate and is falling in bits within 2 years.
