I am getting a little frustrated at some of the costings that my builder is providing me. Surprises surprise
I got my quote for conduits with blank face plate for wall mounting TV's. Came back with a figure which I was ok to pay but not 100% happy.
After the first quote, I asked for a few more conduits (thread http://forum.homeone.com.au/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=63187&p=986290#p986290) The price was $87 which sounds about right. So I questioned the original quote and got the following message
'The price for the blank faceplates is correct @ $87.00ea.
You have added 10 of these to the Home.
The price is for the plate with the conduit thrown in otherwise the plate is not usable'
So to run a conduit between a wall mounted tv and other electrical devices will cost $176 and a conduit from the ground through to the ceiling is $87.
I dont understand their costing? An extra 1m of conduit and labour is half the price? Has anyone had a similar problem?

Is this the Builder or the builders office?
If it is just the office, would you be confident to install the conduits yourself, or ask the person that is onsite to do it?
If you do put them in yourself, take lots of photo's of the locations, write down measurements. You will be able to locate them later on and install face plates at a later point as you need them.
