I totally agree. This guy is way over his head. Around here, $3.75-$5.50 cy.
I'm not talking crap, but I don't think you are capable of doing a job that size.
Their is allot things you need to know especially if it is a municipal project.
Plus, some of that stuff could be hazardous. In which,you will need a license.
Also, you don't get paid until the project is complete. So you are out of pocket for possibly 60 days plus.
Sorry, all you see are dollar signs, and if you don't know whats your doing, it could quite possibly sink your ship.
