Cost estimates for soil stabilisation techniques - soil nails and grouting?

Cost estimates for soil stabilisation techniques - soil nails and grouting?

(OP)
I have a university project to design a soil stabilisation method for an embankment dam. I have chosen to use either soil nails or jet grouting and have to use the most economical solution. Does anyone know a rough cost or where I can estimate the costs for both techniques?

Thank you

In USA I frequently ask contractors such questions, even if they are not given he job later.

As oldestguy mentioned, ask your local contractors who specialize in the work. If it is for a university project then I am sure they would be willing to give you rough cost guidelines. If this was a private project the contractors might not be so helpful unless they are given a guarantee that they would be allowed to price for the work.
