Salem settles on figure for proposed high school project
The district, architects and construction project managers have been working on providing more concrete costs for the ballot vote.
“The total project estimate is $74,745,000,” said Delahanty. “That is a big number, and it seems like a very general number, but there is some background associated with it, including actual construction costs.” He said the figure also includes soft costs, such as furniture, fixtures and equipment.
The project includes demolishing and building new in some areas of the school, including the auditorium, and renovating other portions of the school.
“We feel pretty comfortable that the $57,820,000 is an accurate number for the scope of the project,” said Baroni.
However, Baroni noted that the total area of Windham High School is just over half the size of the total Salem project. He also said that the $38 million figure he has heard brought up for Windham High School only includes the hard construction costs.
If the high school renovation and addition project passes in March, Delahanty has estimated that the project could begin in the late winter or early spring of firstname.lastname@example.org
