Cost Estimates for BD School District Projects

3/2/12 – The Beaver Dam School Board got a look at the cost of five possible projects to deal with maintenance and space issues at district buildings. Representatives from Plunkett Raysich Architects laid out most of the options last month and came back last night with estimated costs. Those ranged from $7.9-million for critical maintenance needs at the middle and high school to a $16.8-million option that would see South Beaver Dam and Trenton Elementary closed with the district constructing a brand new building. Another workshop has been scheduled for March 28th where Board President Marge Jorgensen and the rest of the board will begin weighing their financial options and put together a survey for community input. The options presented last night were based on information gathered by a feasibility study. You can view the study on the district’s website.
