Nobody in this forum knows certainly, otherwise, already would have answered. Better to relax and to wait, unless it wants to close this thread.

Yea, very early stages of foundation. They have to start digging, and that alone may take about 1 or 1.5 years.

It doesn't work like that.

Is cheaper to drill first (and deeper) and dug later, then dug first and have to lift all those heavy drilling/piling equipments from the deep hole once the work is completed. Often drilling/piling and excavation work goes hand in hand.
