Program Demand Cost Model for Alaskan Schools. Eighth Edition.
Morgan, Michael; Mearig, Tim; Coffee, Nathan
The State of Alaska Department of Education has created a handbook for establishing budgets for the following three types of construction projects: new schools or additions; renovations; and combined new work and renovations. The handbook supports a demand cost model computer program that includes detailed renovation cost data, itemized by building systems, to allow for generating specific renovation costs from window replacements to complete interior tear out and remodeling. This handbook provides worksheet descriptions for each type of construction project detailed in the program. A grand summary worksheet is also included which provides a single page summary of the project identification and the estimated project costs. Data tables conclude the handbook which list statistics on geographic area cost factors, a size adjustment chart, an index of Alaskan construction escalation, and the categories for the type of space added or improved under the Department of Education Instruction CIP Application.
