Issaquah School Board OKs construction changes
December 18, 2012
The Issaquah School Board approved nearly $72,000 worth of changes to the construction projects at Maywood Middle and Challenger Elementary schools during the board’s Nov. 28 meeting.
Eight changes were made to Maywood’s building project and add up to $64,681 before taxes. The most expensive item on the list is $51,000 for additional underdrains for the softball field. According to the change order, the softball field contains large areas of poor draining fill soil. The $51,000 price tag does not include the cost of any impact to landscaping work.
Maywood’s other changes include $2,252 for additional patch roofing; $1,287 for fiber cement siding above the new windows on the exterior of the gym to reduce long-term maintenance; $3,097 to remove a large fir tree; and $5,309 for more chain link fencing. The $70,243 change order, which includes sales tax, brings the construction total to $14.32 million.
The school board also approved $1,510 worth of additions, including tax, to Challenger’s building project. From that, $803 is for additional aluminum signage at the multipurpose room and $575 is to buy and install one analog clock in the library. With the additions, Challenger’s construction costs now total $1.68 million.
