Costs rise for construction at Maywood, Liberty

July 17, 2012

By Staff

To the tune of $203,787, the Issaquah School Board approved several changes to the construction at Maywood Middle School and Liberty High School at the board’s brief July 11 meeting.

Twenty-five changes were made to Maywood’s modernization bill, adding $130,881 to the school’s previous $13.7 million contract.

The most expensive of those additions was $25,045 to add partition walls between two sets of rooms. Another $32,476 was earmarked for the demolition of various existing structures. Vinyl end closures for telescoping bleachers rang in at $4,940 and additional drywall work added $4,706 to the bill.

However, not everything on the change order list upped the cost. One item amounted to a $1,039 credit for waste piping revisions.

The $72,906 increase to the bill for phase one at Liberty covers 11 changes to the school’s addition and modernization plan. The two largest items on the list are $19,719 to redesign the underground plumbing and $19,054 to switch the fire alarm panel.

Other charges include $2,147 for drinking fountain plumbing and $3,088 to install electronic latches on the interior theater doors.

Liberty’s original contract was set at $14.2 million and has since increased by more than a half-million by various change orders, including the latest one.
