Steel Fabrication Labor Costs Estimator

Any good references to estimate steel fabrication labor costs (for example cutting, coping, and welding beam W12x14 to another beam W12x14)? Thanks.

RE: Steel Fabrication Labor Costs Estimator

It's tough to say, you don't provide much information as to what you want.

Here in New York City, structural steel for bridges - material, fabrication, delivery, & erection -  runs about $2~$2.50 per pound.

If you're just looking to cut, cope, and weld two beams, it's about two hours work; just apply a labor rate.

RE: Steel Fabrication Labor Costs Estimator

I was a SE and then became a GM of a steel Fabricating Company. I don't know what you are going to use the info for,  but you need to possibly contact a fabricator in your area.  There are many different factors that effect the price of steel.
