Labour coefficient for fixing glass blocks?

dSLQgNHCgJ | Posted in Building Code Questions on

The glass panel I chose is 20cmx20cm and 75mm thick. I want to fix this with aluminum extrusions. As I am outsourcing to the contractor, I want to know the labour coefficients of fixing these blocks.
How much can a worker (carpenter or mason) fix the area in a day (8 hours)? Thank you.

    According to the Dodge Unit Cost Guide, it the labor required to install glass block is 0.242 person-hours per square foot.

    However, this labor assumption varies widely by geography. If you live in a country that spells "labour" with a U, the number of person-hours could easily vary.
