For students, summer is a time of freedom and fun. For schools, summer is a time to ramp up construction work, complete safety upgrades, and renovate academic, athletic, and artistic spaces. Schools plan these projects well in advance of when they actually start, and they use accurate construction cost data to forecast prices and to budget appropriately.
RSMeans data from Gordian features more than 100 building models, including various types of schools. These localized models allow architects, engineers, and construction professionals to quickly and accurately create conceptual estimates for future builds.
The table below shows the most recent cost per square foot to build schools in cities in several American states. Visit rsmeans.com/bdandc for more information about RSMeans data.
