Re: cost of field drilling holes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Through a flange, web, base plates?
Is it overhead work?
Is high rise, limited access or residential?
Can they be punched, or must they be drilled?

I need to have 10 sets of (8) 1 5/16" diameter holes drilled through 1" plate in the field.  Each will have the same circular pattern.  The contractor has submitted a price that I think is excessive (just my gut feel).  Assuming the contractor is already on site for other work, what would you think is a reasonable cost for this?  If any of you have any data to back up your estimate, I would appreciate some ammunition. Thanks in advance, Ken Kenneth S.
