Installation Project Estimator

(For: structured cabling, voice/phone/VoIP, network/Ethernet cabling in Dallas-Fort Worth and the North Texas Region)

 

   (AVAREN can tackle data and telephone cabling projects large and small in Dallas-Fort Worth and the North Texas Region. Take a look at our quick project estimator shown below.)

 

Large Data Cabling Jobs - Cost Estimator

   To begin estimating your network or phone cabling installation (Dallas-Fort Worth, North Texas Region), first determine the location of all of the "drops" or distinct connections needed.  Consider the following items when working out your count: All needed telephone and network connections, fax connections, connections in conference rooms, kitchen telephones, stand alone printer installations, warehouses, or elsewhere where one-offs or additional drops may be needed.

   Assuming standard drop ceiling construction*, multiply the number of drops by $125/drop (for Cat5 cabling/parts) and $150/drop (for Cat6 cabling/parts). (Some telephone systems can use a cheaper (Cat3) cabling, but it is rarely requested.)

   So, assuming the most ideal construction conditions*, cat5/cat6 cabling, and no additional hardware or labor necessary, the following table below lists good budgetary cost numbers for the cabling portion of the installation.

10 Cat5/Cat5e Drops = $1,250.00

20 Cat5/Cat5e Drops = $2,500.00

50 Cat5/Cat5e Drops = $6,250.00

100 Cat5/Cat5e Drops = $12,500.00

 

10 Cat6 Drops = $1,500.00

20 Cat6 Drops = $3,000.00

50 Cat6 Drops = $7,500.00

100 Cat6 Drops = $15,000.00

*Construction impediments can include but are not limited to: brick construction, lack of attic/ceiling space, sheet rock or other hard ceilings, office cubicles, necessity of plenum rated cabling, and many others. Additional labor or hardware charges may be required.

Additional Considerations...

 

   Typically, data cabling installations will have a point of central termination. At this central point, clients often need different things, so the hardware packages listed below may not be applicable. If you do not require this type of additional hardware, feel free to use the numbers above for budgetary purposes. (If a precise estimate is needed, please call to schedule a facility walk-through.)

   After having determined the correct number of drops, one should also consider the other additional hardware components that will be needed to complete the job in an organized and professional way. Depending on your size, location, and requirements, you may need one or more of the following: Wall mount rack, patch panel, rack shelf, power distribution unit (not pictured), cable management units, patch cables, and installation of this and other equipment if needed, etc.

   For larger installations a full size "telco" or server rack may be in order. When implementing a telecommunications rack there are numerous other components that may be needed as well. These components might include: Rack cabling ladders, ladder mounting hardware, patch panels, rack shelves, power distribution, vertical and horizontal cable management, patch cables, and installation service.
