Construction Estimate (costs)

We had a contractor give us a bid recently that included costs broken down into line items. One of which was the fee they were going to charge us for the employee who will oversee the project as a project manager. The total project estimate was 1.2 million and the project manager fee was 65K of that.

Does that sound reasonable/unreasonable to those of you who are familiar with such costs? What percentage of the project is reasonable for a project manager?

The project is in the inland northwest.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
