The city’s Joint Construction Team, formed to manage the process of building new schools after the passage of the meals tax last year, released a statement updating cost estimates for construction of three new schools. George Mason Elementary, estimated in late 2017 at $25 million, is now estimated to cost $36 million. E.S.H. Greene Elementary is up from $35 million to $42 million. And a new middle school planned on Hull Street is increased from $50 million to $62 million. The team found that the initial estimates under-represented the true cost of construction and did not take into account other factors, such as increased construction costs since 2017 and a size expansion of Greene Elementary. Richmond Public Schools broke ground on the three schools in December.
