Default Concrete form guys...Underpinning question?

Got the bad news the other day that the next door neighbors townhouse(circa 1900) I am starting against to build my first of six townhomes next to only has a full basement extending 30' and crawl space the rest of the distance. Our project is full basement to 38', so I am going to need shoring up of the last 8' of dirt under their house as well as underpinning of approx 4' on the first 30'.

Anybody have a ball park estimate for cost(rough is fine). Have a few people working on quotes but I want to be prepared for any sticker shock.

Thanks

He is going to have a basement that runs 38 ft. The townhouse next to him has a basement that is only 30 ft long. He wants to know how much it will cost to build a wall to support the 8 ft of dirt under his neighbors house since they share a common wall. I am assuming the first floor of the existing and new townhouses will be 38 ft long.
