foundation cost

I got a bid for a foundation on a room addition.
The quote is $8100 for a 5 sack mix, all the rebar and bolts, forms, and excavation. Since this is over crawlspace there is an additional 3 yards of dirt that needs to be excavated as well.

It's about 70 linear feet for the foundation. The footing is 12x8" and the stem wall is 16x6". There are two tie in points that the new foundation will attach to the existing foundation via epoxied rebar.

This ends up being about 4yrds of concrete and only 70 feet of forms. Maybe my expectations are totally out of whack, but this feel high. Am I off base?

Get at least 3 quotes. Costs of all building materials have skyrocketed.
