Ultimately, the Andover community will need to decide the level of financial investment that should be made to improve school facilities. The West Elementary School Building Committee has a goal of gaining community feedback and adjusting potential options to meet community expectations. Cost estimates are based on current construction prices and assume that construction will begin in 2022. The project budget will be established upon completion of the Schematic Design phase of the project. Current projections are in the range of ± $155.5 million, which includes architectural and engineering design fees, construction, and furniture, fixtures, and equipment.
