Overex Likelihood Based On Geotech?

Trying to bid excavation as accurate as possible for a 2400 sf house on the flat top of this mound. Geotech has been done (results attached). Soil conditions look favorable and footings should be fine on native soil from what I can tell. Obviously I don't want to promise anything (seems like every dig reveals something new) but I'd be interested to see what you all think. Civil planner has already measured cuts and fills so I can quote fairly accurately based on yardage if there's no over-ex/e-fill/compaction. Just trying to analyze soil when I'm not an engineer. The basement hole will be about 7 feet. Thanks.

you're lucky, have a good property owner that entertained the services of an engineer. monkey's off your back.

just do what they direct you to do, and get your money!
