Doing a little outsourcing, are we?


Best thing to do is get a copy of R. S. Means’ “Square Foot Costs” book.

Can anybody specify a ballpark figure for the cost of structure (structural cost only minus the finishing & elec/HVAC/plumbing) for a normal 2 or 3 storied office or institutional building (like a high school) in USA.


Also what would be an average breakup for the material / labor cost ratio.


Just ballpark figures to get a rough idea.
