yeah, yeah.....save the lecture...

we are an electrical contractor bidding a ground solar project...as part of our contract, we are to provide a slab for the inverters and transformer...

we are not doing the concrete work, but I got the prints yesterday and bids are due tomorrow...electrically, no problem...but i don't have mason in my pocket at the moment...

so, here are the specs, as limited as they are...

"a single monolithic slap will be needed for the equipment pad. The slab will need to be 24 feet by 12 feet, perimeter footers to frost depth, and four openings for underground PVC conduit stub-outs. Each void for PVC conduit will be approximately 24 by 24 inches. Work should include forming, reinforcing and pouring the pad."

the job is in South Jersey (any masons in cumberland county interested, let me know)...I believe 36" will get you below frost...

I am simply looking for a ball park to plug in for our number. This job is a negotiated project for the solar installer, we are simply giving them a budget for their financing.

so, what are the thoughts....?

I think time is crucial for his bid/budget submittal and he is hoping someone will look at his high post count and answer the dreaded "how much" question.

Also, it doesn't hurt that he is Celtic's #1 fan. :laughing:
