[lsvr_content_box]Construction Costs = Materials + Labor utilized in the renovation/construction of a building.

Total Project Costs = Construction Costs + Architectural and Engineering Fees; Other Professional Fees; Fixtures, Furniture & Equipment (FF&E).  This encompasses every aspect of the project.

The total project costs for the 6 Lincoln School concepts under consideration range from $49M to $109M.

[lsvr_content_box]Total cost of the project divided by the total number of square feet.[/lsvr_content_box]
[lsvr_content_box]Net Zero: A building is “net zero” if enough electric generation (i.e. solar panels, wind power) is added to offset the amount of energy consumed.[/lsvr_content_box]
[lsvr_content_box]EUI = Energy Use Intensity.  It is the total amount of energy consumed by the building divided by the total number of square feet. The current building has an EUI of 65. An EUI in the low 20’s is considered a good target for New England. A building is “net zero” if enough electric generation (i.e. solar panels, wind power) is added to offset the amount of energy consumed.[/lsvr_content_box]

The firms of SMMA and EwingCole have teamed up for the design of the Lincoln School renovation. SMMA has done extensive school design work in Massachusetts, and EwingCole has deep experience designing schools around the world for the Department of Defense. EwingCole designed the new Hanscom Middle and Primary Schools.
