    There's no 'one size fits all' formula for quoting electrical installation work. you need to cost price all your materials and add your mark-up. Draw up a labour program and work out the hours required and multiply this by your hourly/daily rate. Add the labour and materials figures together and add appropriate amounts to cover anything out of the ordinary that's particular to that job.

    A thumb suck would be around R35000.00 as per list

    excluding:
    the main cable.
    Meter box
    council connection costs

    by the way if you quoting to install conduit and wiring...there is a good chance your price will be way more expensive than the twin+E contractors plastered straight in the wall.

    People buy these "town/complex houses" for millions thinking the electrical is done in conduit and wiring...to find the very first electrician call out that property developers dont waste money of unnecessary stuff
