Just THINKING about bidding on something. Probally wont bid, but thinking about it if I can line up a couple ppl to come on board. Its filling sinkholes from an old underground mining operation. Basically old mines were filled in, and over the yrs the fill settled, and now they need to be refilled. There are 4 jobsites: ~ 65 yds ~ 185 yds ~ 1200 yds ~ 2050 yds All fill material is located on site, not sure the haul distance. Guessing within 1/4 mile. An excavator is required to be onsite. Loader may be used for doing the work, excavator just must be there. (part of some sinkhole standard the state has adopted states it just must BE there) - Could use the ex to load trucks, and the loader to fill the hole after the truck dumps, or vise versa. I also need to grass seed the area upon completion. Anyways, they want a price per yard. And a mobilization price. I am thinking something like $3000 to show up. (the mobilization price is per jobsite also, so 12k total mobilization) I am thinking about $27-35/yd. I would be paying 2-3 rental trucks by the hour on the 2 larger sites for sure. on the smaller sites just 1 rental truck. I am estimating this job at just under 100k total. Remember its State work, and spread over 4 jobsites. I dont expect many bidders on this job. What do some of you excavation guys think? Thanks!
