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.
Ballpark cost sq. ft. for electrical and plumbing
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)
Surly at those prices it would be cheaper to bring in your own crew to do the work from the mainland?
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.
