With the increasing pace of school construction, knowing how much a school should cost can facilitate effective new-school planning. To help with this process, this document provides new-construction costs as figured for the State of Georgia. The estimates include costs per square foot for elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools, as well as extra expenses, such as additions to classrooms, media rooms and laboratories, and physical education facilities. Support areas, such as administrative suites, kitchens, cafeterias, and restrooms are likewise estimated. This document also discusses what educators can expect in the way of architect fees and contingencies, as well as estimated renovation costs of buildings varying widely in age. The construction of the physical plant must also be estimated and costs per square foot for roofing, heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning are supplied. (RJM)
