Use these figures to estimate the cost of copper USE RHH-RHW solid and stranded, MTW stranded 90-degree and MTW heavy insulation stranded 90-degree wire installed in conduit under the conditions described on pages 5 and 6. Costs listed are for each 1,000 linear feet installed. The crew is two electricians for sizes up to #4, three electricians for sizes over #4 to #4/0 and four electricians for sizes over #4/0. The labor cost per manhour is $39.84. These costs include fishing string, circuit make-up, splices on wire up to #6, reel set-up, pulling compound, phase identification, circuit testing, layout, material handling, and normal waste. Add for a bonding wire run in non-metallic or flexible conduit, sales tax, delivery, supervision, mobilization, demobilization, cleanup, overhead and profit. Note: These costs are for conduit runs of less than 100 feet and assume that three wires of the same size are pulled at the same time. Type MTW is machine tool wire and can be used for control wiring. A deposit is often required on larger-wire reels. These costs assume that larger reels are returned for credit. Order large-size wire in longest lengths available to reduce waste.

The figures above are from a time and money saving construction cost manuals from Craftsman Book Company. Over 50 cost estimating databases are available and all come with the popular National Estimator program.
