Looks like they are gearing up for lots of pile driving.
I went piledriving ♫
I went rocky mountain climbing ♫
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu ♫
And I loved deeper ♫
And I spoke sweeter ♫
And I gave forgiveness I'd been denyin' ♫
And he said some day I hope you get the chance ♫
To live like you were dyin' ♫

Which means no blasting!
Well the drill rig doesn't drill into the rock. The only way you can tell is to get ahold of the borehole results
The other problem with rock is you might know one elevation in one spot, but you have no idea where it could be 1 ft over as there could be a valley or a mountain.
as for excavation speed that depends on the shoring contractor, excavators and more importantly the availability of labour. also what color was the clay, if its blue look for a slow slow excavation (although on the plus side stop by for lots of good pottery clay!)
They are wasting no time at all on this project. They have been driving piles seemingly constantly and it looked like the trees might be coming down today as Davey is on site.
