You'll need to figure out how much material you'll use, how much it costs, and how long that'll take.
There are way to many variables to give you even a guesstimated price.

$3.50/sq.ft. plus paint. Good place to start. Atleast that's what I do on repaints.
I want a 5% kickback on that one..

I would be careful of the prep required in a dorm. The existing damage could be brutal in some rooms/areas.

$98,000.00 seems reasonable if you compare it to the cost of painting a 12'L X 12'L X 8'H Bedroom. ($500.00/144 sq.)


$500.00 X 194 (144/28,000)= $97,000

Might want to take into account prevailing wage considerations if applicable..

Iím wondering if you could obtain comparable expenditure history under your stateís Freedom of Information Act for similar projects that were funded wholly or in part by the public body.
