Question by Jack: What is the ballpark cost of a concrete house foundation in Texas?
I am building a 6500 sq ft building in East Texas. What should be the reasonable cost of concrete (to pour this foundation and footings)? What is reasonable charge for labor?

Call local contractors to get a price. This is a commercial building, which will have different costs than residential. Prices vary widely, even within the same geographic region. Get a minimum of 3 bids, compare them closely to be sure they are bidding the exact same work, ask for and check references, and remember that the low bid is not necessarily the best value. Hope this helps.

BTW, They type of foundation you want will affect the price as well. Are you looking at slab on grade or poured walls? How deep? What load will they be supporting? Will there be pads for columns? Your plan will show all of this. Good luck.
