We give a £/Lm rate for painting door frames, but now they've fitted intumescent fire strips into the frame lining that we have to cut in 3 times, would you have rate in mind?

The problem when pricing new build, commercial painting projects, is that more often than not the buildings are not yet constructed.
The Building Contractor will email you the tender documents (or link to the documents) and will expect you to be able to price the project from this information.
In the UK, the usual way to do this is to measure the works from the drawings and to your measure, apply what are known as 'all-in' £/m2 or £/Lm rates.
