New VCT usually requires 6 coats of wax to be fully protected plus a scrub and mop so depending on the size I would at least plan for around 8 hours, I know you want per foot but for jobs like this I like to base my price off of materials/time/difficulty. A new tile wax job is going to be cheaper than 15 coats of old wax I have to strip off.

Great, Thanks. The Job is in a New Hotel, and it's 1968 Sf of New VCT, I bid .50 a SF so if it takes me 8 hours, I will Make Less than My 120.00 Per hour I need. You win Some you lose some. I also have the carpet and sealing of the grout on new tile, so I can make it up in that end. Thanks Guys.
