Underpinning Excavation

Hi all first time on this site was looking for a bit of guidance on prices. I am fairly new to Canada so tend to research the cost of things to make sure I am not undercutting myself.

I am currently underpinning a basement that was originally a post and beam Construction. We have had the engineer out to survey as we found the footings were only a 2 feet down. All of this we will fix but the excavation is what I need help pricing.

We found that from 1' below grade to 8' below grade is all mud stone which the engineer obviously said needs to be removed. The foot print is 522sqft and we need to dig to 8 ft. Any help on pricing this would be great. Thanks people.

Re: Underpinning Excavation

I'd ask my sub. Too many variables to say much about this one.
