    Are you pricing this up to carry out yourself or is this just a contract you are tendering for?

    As others have said, not really sure how you expect people to be able to advise a figure, too many variables to consider.

    You would need to do a take-off of the material and labour required and build a cost.

    On larger jobs it's important to pay close attention to specification, the cost of 4" valves can be pretty hefty and can vary quite a lot depending on the manufacturer, allowing for bellows, is the steel medium or heavy etc and on a 8 month job don't forget about plant, hire of access equipment press tool and threading machines soon adds up.

    Also upon providing a quote important to outline your exclusions core drilling/ fire stopping etc.
