    Hi rell, the background you share is hardly understandable. What's more the question you ask seems to be unanswerable--how one could possible answer how much time would take something that isn't defined in a question. Please update the question so it is more specific, otherwise you don't really give anyone a chance to answer it in a meaningful way. – Pawel Brodzinski Oct 30 '12 at 9:38

You will need a Supervisor/Superintendent for every day that the excavation operation is going on. Excavation crews cannot work without supervision. It's a safety issue. So figure one Supervisor day for every crew day.
