Default concrete guesstimate for 30X50 pole barn

What have you guys spent on 30X50 slabs or 30X40? I know I'll have to get some dirt work done, probably use that fiber mesh to prevent cracking, 4" slab.
The pole barn guys gave me an estimate on the shop and now Im trying to see what concrete will cost. guessing 5k? I know there are several factors. Around here I've seen too many that should've had done some dirt work to elevate it a little and now when it rains water comes in the bottom of the garage doors.

I have 36 x 60 and I paid right around $8000 for the slab. It figured out to around $180 per cubic yard in place. All the quotes i got were in the range between $180-$200 per yard.

I had a 30x48 done 2 years ago in ne ohio. plastic vapor barier 3-4 inches of gravel wire mesh reinforcement 4inches thick in 3/4 of it 6 inches thick where the lift will someday go. Cost was $4500. I did all of the dirt work, building up and compacting. All he had to form was the doorways.

Paid 5500 for about that much. They finished leveling to their satisfaction using 2-3 yards of fill I had laying there, but 90% of the dirt work was done and compacted.

You'll probably end up closer to 5" thick by the time it is formed. At that you are looking at 23.15 yards of concrete. The last time I checked it was running right at $100/yd. + delivery. Then you have to take in consideration gravel for a base, concrete for footers or at least thicker where the footers are if a slab. I know that in my area for something that size and being worked by someone else you are looking at $6000-$9000. And maybe more as some of ones that do flatwork think that everyone else's work is bad and theirs is the best.
If you are not going to work the concrete and have someone else do it, SHOP AROUND with different contractors. It is unbelievable the difference is price between contractors. I had a 20'x20' foundation put in for the wifes building, concrete slab, sidewalk completely around the house, and save over $8000 over local contractors. I went out of town to save that kind of money.

Rebar? any beams around the edges or across the span? elevation issues? All come in to the price. For a flat 4" slab with no fill dirt or metal I would say $2/$3 sf. All the above options could go up to $4/$6 sf, in my area (Texas) so your 30x50 would be anywhere from $3k to $9k.

I am going my 32 X 48 myself, 4” thick, comercial fiber in the concrete. 20 yards @ $110 a yard including sales tax. Plus power screed and power trowel rental. Even In Michigan with massive unemployment, the concrete people still want a minimum per sq ft. I can not hire one at a fixed rate for a “day of labor”
