To determine the price per square foot you need to add the total cost of the work to the amount of profit you want to make and then divide that number (the price) by the length (100) and then divide again by the height (6).
As an example only, if it costs you $5,000 to do the work and you want to earn $500 profit then the price is $5,500.
A price of $5,500 divided by a wall length of 100 feet divided by a wall height of 6 feet = $1.83 per square foot.
Rick, I don't think that was the answer he was looking for. I think that he wanted to know the going rate per sq.ft. and union, that will be regional.
FL is a right-to-work state with a large minimum wage labor pool and I can build that wall for a lot less than someone in an area where everything has to be union labor. Permit and inspection fees vary as well as many other factors.
If you could tell us where this wall is being built possibly someone could help.
Here in central NJ, the union rate for a wall like that would be $16.75 to $18/SF, depending on the reinforcing/grouting specs. Of course, that information is pretty much useless to you, but I figured I'd throw it out there as the opposite end of the spectrum from the "buck a block" guys.
