Arlington, Belmont, Waltham, Saugus and Somerville are five High School building projects navigating through similar challenges–dense suburbs with somewhat comparably scaled projects being undertaken generally within the same timeframe. While there are similarities between the projects, none of these projects (or other projects in the state) are comparable in complexity to Arlington High School.

2/13/19 Note: The figures used in this blog are based on Preferred Schematic Report estimates. At the PSR stage, Arlington’s estimate was $308M. At the end of Schematic Design, Arlington’s project budget is now $291M. We are in the process of updating this benchmark comparison to compare Schematic Design costs with other projects.
