Construction Cost Per Square Foot for College Classrooms

by Dean Dalvit on January 21, 2016

Our posts on construction cost data per square foot for various project types are so popular, that I will continue updating them more frequently as this is fairly time sensitive data. Please note the date on the blog posts so you know that you are viewing the most current information. Also, click HERE for other construction cost topics, or you can always search by keyword from the search bar on the upper right hand corner of this page.

Please note that all of this information is made available from the industry experts in construction cost estimating, RSMeans, and is our basis for estimating conceptual project costs during the initial programming phase here at EVstudio. Please note that these are great numbers to ballpark initial budget goals and expectations, however, more accurate pricing can only be developed after full programming of the project and initial schematic designs can be developed with some understanding of size, scale, scope, construction type and level of finish.

For more information about RSMeans Square Foot Cost Guide and RSMeans Construction Cost Index, which indexes square foot costs for cities in the US and Canada, visit the RSMeans Online bookstore  and click on cost data publications.

And of course, feel free to contact any of us here at EVstudio about your project and we would be happy to help get you started on your pro forma as well as assist in any or all of the design phases or disciplines that will help you realize your vision. We have professionals that can help with the process as early on as entitlements as well as full Architecture and all of the Engineering disciplines, all of which help to inform your project budget and goals.

Charles, Thanks for your question. What you are describing really isn’t in the scope of this study. Ordinarily, I would recommend contacting a general contractor in order to get specific line item cost information on a project with such specifically defined scope. Since you are a contractor, it sounds like you are looking for unit cost information. I would recommend checking out RSMeans for that. It is a pay-for service, but they have unit cost information on every trade in the book and that should help you put together your estimate. If you are ever in need of Architecture or Engineering services and solutions, EVstudio has experts in Architecture, Structural, MEP and Civil Engineering and would be happy to help.
