    Hi all, I was wondering if any of you kind Sirs could point me in the right direction...Does a schedule of rates exist for new builds? For example you can get schedule of rates for electrical work, x amount per meter of cable, x amount per meter of containment installed in different scenarios. I was wondering if something similar existed for plumbing and heating? Thanks Lee

    your looking around top end about 1k for first fix (plumbing and heating) and soils and around 250-300 for second fix

    tbh theres not set amount just want the builders allow/pay

    Yeah I get that but I price lots of newbuild electrical work and there are guides to help out. I appreciate there are many variables etc but surely there must be something similar to the national schedule of rates?

    It's very very early stages but we have the opportunity to take the work on for a reputable builder we've worked with for years. We are in negoations/talks With a good engineer/plumber we know to become a partner. We have the office, money in the bank, ability to get vans and the work etc so I'm just thinking out loud ATM really. Today I've just had the drawings dumped on my lap for a site of 30 houses, a block of 15 flats and a two very high end new builds (worth about 2 mill each when complete).

    The only thing that really bothers me is he's always worked on firms so next to no experience on pricing etc.

    Check out the latest edition of HUTCHINS PRICED SCHEDULES 2018. I swore by it when I started up some 15yrs ago. Helped me to price up all works not just plumbing. I still occasionally use my 2003 edition today for reference and just adjust the price to today's rates. But at the end of the day I have a set figure nowadays how much I like to make in a day or I don't bother.

    Agree with you there bud i have a colleague who does them 3-4k labour is more like it depening on build 2-3 bed, also dont forget they tie you into a maintenance contract to put any faults right that may occur over a 1 year period dont matter what the fault is its down to you to repair dont get caught out all the best kop

    I did some last year for 2.5k each and they didn't think twice about the price. Not sure what others charge in the area.
