Although you don't show the scope of the work (how many steps, where do they go) the daily rate for a brickie is probably around £ 170. Could you do it in a day? Seems a reasonable price - you might be able to haggle a bit.
If, however, price includes a semi-skilled labourer as well I'd bite his hand off and get it done.
