A fair price for new construction to prime and 1 topcoat ceilings and walls would be .30 – .35 per sq. ft. of total (ceiling and wall) area to be done. A formula to figure this out roughly is to take floor square footage x 3.8.

The actual price depends on if the job is residential or commercial and the specs. It has been a long time since I bid commercial work. But, if memory serves me I bid .25 cents per on the wall sq/ft for prime and paint. This was for a commercial retail space, one color and sheen, no installed flooring and drop ceiling. Check with your local paint sales rep, they keep up on the goings on with pricing.
