English to Chinese: Restoration works of a historical site
Source text - English The historical site/building is regulated by Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) which belongs to the local government, it takes a long process to apply for restoration works. After the application, DCA will budget for the construction and the project is open to public bidding.
As now the site has been under construction since August and will last for 1 year and more, the condition shown in the photos you provided, fragmented bricks, mold, and mottled cement, will be repaired during this project period.
Refer to the budget estimation, please note that we need to use aged bricks for the integrity of the appearance, then we will repair the grouting, replacing broken bricks, even it might need structural reinforcement to shape the bricks. However, the work is mainly base on the worker's experience and aesthetic perception without fixed price, the precise cost will depend on the construction method and demands after discussing with the professional worker of art restoration.
Therefore, I can only provide a ballpark figure- 30,000(TWD)/1M2 for your reference, which includes,
1) 4 workers- 16,000
2) Materials: Aged brick, cement, sand and hand tools- 8,000
3) Scaffolding, transportation fee, clean and protection etc- 6,000
