Can you build a shopping center for $100,000? where? One building may cost that, or more.
Your arch/Engr cost may approximate 15%. 4-5 professionals may spend 200-300 hours total. So, full-time equivalent job is .1 to .15 people for whole year.
Your construction labor may employ 40-50 people, withdifferent subcontractors, at different times during, say, a 3 month project, expending 1,000 hours or more total. At 40 people, the average time spent on a job would be 25 hours, or say about 3 days each. so, a full-time equivalent (FTE) would be about a 1/2 person for a year. What this means is, it would take 1 person, if he had all those skills, 6 months to do all that labor work.
So, when each person/subcontractor finishes his work, he's looking for another project. . . . .or goes home on unemployment.

I didn't think so that you can build the Shopping center around 100k However If you built it than those jobs (Labor, Engineering,Etc) are limited. Onces you fnneshed with yours Shopping center than those jobs are gone. Now, It depends on them geting the another job Or Shall you employ them forever ?
