SUPTS. MEMO. NO. 135
September 18, 1998
|FROM:||Paul D. Stapleton
Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||Public School Buildings Placed Under Contract Between July 1, 1997 - June 30, 1998, and Individual and Average Cost Data by School Type|
Attached are: 1. A list of new public school projects placed under contract in fiscal year 1997-98 with individual and average cost data by school types; 2. A list of selected addition and renovation projects in fiscal year 1997-98 with individual and average cost data; 3. A six-year (1992-1993 through 1997-98) tabulation of average unit area and cost data; and 4. A graph, based on the above, indicating the change in public school construction costs over a six-year period. As was provided last year, we have identified site development costs as a separate item on Attachments No. 1-3. Based on last year's averages, it appears there was a decrease in the prices compared to the previous year. This may be due in part to a more competitive bid market during the spring of this year. If you have any questions concerning the above, please call Hunter L. Barnes, Architectural Consultant, Facilities Services at (804) 225-2035. PDS/ya Enclosures: A hard copy of this memo and its attachments will be sent to the superintendent's office.
