Project Budget Set

February 2019

At the February 5 meeting, the Building Committee voted unanimously on a proposed project budget of $291M, a $17M reduction from the preliminary estimate of $308M last summer. The final budget was determined after a series of meetings and discussion about Value Engineering items that could be removed from the project.
