Here links to a previous similar question with answers FYI -

Common numbers (realize these are ballpark, dependent on product quality, local labor rates, access and site-specific factors (like height off ground, plantings near wall that need protecting, weather, etc) are about $4-10/SF for fake or "cultured" veneer panels made of stamped/formed fiberglass or plastic which are screwed or nailed onto the wall in sheets, around $8-15/SF for "synthetic" veneer which are fake stone applied like real stone - $12-20 for cheaper commonly available and cheap to make stone grades like limestone or shale and shales, more like $25-50/SF for higher-quality true stone veneer like granite or slate. These numbers for typical 4" or thinner veneer - if you mean true staked cut stone which might run up to a foot thick (and hence not a "veneer" but rather a "facade" or "facing", because of the greater foundation and wall structure requirements, commonly about $10-20/SF more for that.

Removal of the existing siding and placement of insulation / water barrier can typically run a couple to a few dollars/SF EACH on top of that - and usually the existing water barrier is NOT suitable for reuse.

For this size job definitely get several bids from General Contractors or Masonry contractors - because you can expect a wide variation on pricing, so I would be looking at probably a half dozen bids to be able to tell which are lowball, which are in the reasonable range, and which way too high. This is a big job for veneer, so you should have no problem getting bids.

And be sure to tie down the exact product you want in initial site visits - and tell them that until you see their products and decide which one you want, you don't want bids - then notify them mall what exact product (from samples they showed you or yuou found at a store) you want and have them ALL bid the exact same scope of work with the same product, so you can compare apples to apples.
