To install fees and more. No one could give an estimate but the basics is simple. Run ethernet up the middle and deploy Access Points on each floor as a start. If the floors have coverage issues increase the number of APs.

It's that simple but folk that don't do this, tend to make it a big deal.

going for a single Wi-Fi connection for such a huge area in not suggested as it can lead to IP address conflict so it would be better if you go for few more connections,
