Wiring price for an electrical commercial wiring

What is the going rate for per square foot to figure out a price for an electrical commercial wiring. The building is 100ft x 120ft and will have 1 four hundred amp service and one three phase 200 amp service. 80 circuits. Any help will be appreciated.

What is the premises going to be used for, you say 80 circuits are they 80 lighting circuits or recepticle circuits. Or combination of both.

How can anyone give a price on a commercial job by just the sq/footage??
There are almost no requirements for commercial application, as in almost no required receptacles, etc..
Will the building be lit or are skylites enough? Will it have HVAC? How about a thermoneuclear global positioning current sensing cordless drill batter charger?
Is it a store?
Warehouse?
Brothel????

I wouldn't even touch an estimate on the services without looking at it or a set of prints.

It will be used for a church life center. It will be a combination of both lighting circuits and recepticel circuits plus 3 ten ton ac units with gas heat.

Have you even contacted a local electrican yet?
Like I said, without prints how can you base a price? A home you can price by the square foot to comply with minimum code since the required items are adequate to occupy the house.

If you do convince someone to give you a sq/ft price make darn sure you get an itemized list of what will be installed or you may get an unpleasant surprise when the job is done. Like one light in the middle of a 120'x100' space.
