Liberty High School construction costs rise by $65,000
November 20, 2012
The Issaquah School Board approved more than $65,000 worth of changes Nov. 7 to Phase 1 construction at Liberty High School.
The change order from Bayley Construction includes $59,767 in additions and $5,677 in taxes.
The most expensive of the eight changes is $16,650 to remove unsuitable soil and replace it with structural fill. Other additions include $14,671 for electrical work for the ticket booth and $14,247 for landscaping, including extra irrigation needed to complete a new parking lot.
Other smaller changes are $1,936 for structural revisions; $3,993 to improve power to the auditorium speakers; and $5,868 for miscellaneous items, such as more fire sprinklers and steel deck supports at the black box theater.
This is the 10th time the Liberty construction project has changed. The original contract, before taxes, started out at $14.16 million and now totals $16.22 million, including taxes.
