1. Two pieces of equipment costing $ 15,000 and $ 35,000 = $50,000.00
2. Material required for electrical hook-up is 400 feet at $ 25 per foot = $10,000.00
3. Controls for each piece of equipment are estimated at $ 600 each = $1200.00
4. Required start-up material is 3,700 pounds at $ 2.70 per pound = $9,990.00
5. Company labor for installation requires two maintenance specialists for two days at eight hours per day and $ 35 per hour = $1,120.00
6. Contract labor is estimated at a fixed price of $ 7,500.00
7. Engineering is estimated to be 15% of (equipment / material) cost based on past experience
= 10,678.50
8. Inspection is estimated to be 3% of (labor) cost based on past experience = 258.60
9. General and Administrative expenses are estimated to be 5% of the total of (equipment / material) and (labor) based on past experience. = 3990.50
