Ballpark cost sq. ft. for electrical and plumbing
Looking for a ballpark figure for cost per square foot to put in electrical and plumbing on a new masonry residential construction project on STT. Not the fixtures, just rough-in. Any insight is appreciated.
That is so hard to say. I've seen bids come in that are nearly the same for a 2500sqft home and a 5000sqft home. It depends on a lot of things. $60k plumbing $140k electrical. Then change orders can add to that. That is on St. John. The higer end and more technical you go will make a big difference. (as is the case with these two homes)
If you want to get your CO, and permanent power, you will need to have a USVI licensed electrician for inspections. Same goes for a plumber. I should have noted that the homes I mentioned were both multi million dollar homes. You can get things done for less no doubt. I guess my point is that it's almost impossible to ballpark these trades based on square footage.
