Is this bid for electrical high or right on?
We received the breakout of our kitchen bid, and while I may be looking for ways to save money, most of the items were at least in the ballpark of what I expected, however the electrical bid seemed very high at nearly $12.5K. Most of our appliances would be staying in roughly the same locations (main fridge & dishwasher in same place, cooktop shifted ~6 inches, wall ovens shifted 1-2 feet), though we would need to upgrade one outlet to 220V for the speedcook. We would also be installing recessed lighting and replacing the existing light fixtures. So would love input from folks who have been down this road as to whether this is high or if it's really a more complicated project than I realized.
The specific items on the bid are below:
D/W, Vent Hood, Cooktop, Oven, Microwave, Disposals Connecting
Install GFCI Outlets in existing boxes
New Conduit, Duplex Outlet, Fridge Drawer Outlet, and GFCI for Island
Install 3 (owner furnished) Pendant lights over island w/ dimmer
Install LED under-cabinet lights
Install 11 MLV recessed can lights w/ dimmer
Install (owner furnished) chandelier in breakfast nook on existing box and add dimmer
Replace 3 switches and 5 existing plugs
