Palmyra Area School District Palmyra Middle School
SitelogIQ was hired to complete an Enhanced District Options Study (EDOS) to review and further elaborate on a district-wide facility upgrades and renovation building program that had been commissioned in a traditional designer-led feasibility study. The study included three schools: Palmyra Area Middle School, Northside Elementary School, and Forge Road Elementary School. Among the study’s options was a program that accomplished the District’s priorities/needs at the Middle School: a 12-classroom addition (20,000 square feet), secure entrance, administrative office renovations, cafeteria expansion, and building-wide upgrades/renovations at approximately $27.1 million. The District maintained a working project budget of $26 million and a revised feasibility study cut the Owner’s desired educational program by 12,000 square feet. The District engaged SitelogIQ to review the cost estimates and develop a hybrid program for cost comparison. We achieved the following results:
19,400-square-foot addition (increased to meet educational program needs)
Renovations to existing building footprint (cosmetic, major MEP, security)
Renovations to building façade, exterior site improvements, parking lots
Gymnasium bleachers and green screen classrooms
As a turn-key package, the SitelogIQ hybrid project was executed at $18,168,845 – costs that include architectural design fees, SitelogIQ MEP design services, SitelogIQ pre-construction and construction management services, and SitelogIQ energy services. The costs associated with the Hybrid Solution – meeting all educational program needs – when compared to the traditional design-bid-build feasibility budgets represents a savings of roughly $8.9 million.
