A school construction project can attain renovation status if the project meets:

• The criteria defining a “Renovation” project pursuant to CGS Section 10-282 (18)

• The Guidelines for Eligibility of Renovation Status

• The cost savings criteria pursuant to CGS Section 10-286 (a) (8)

Project cost savings can be determined when:

• Prior to final plan approval, an independent licensed architect provides documentation that renovating the facility will cost less than building new

• The total cost of the renovation project is less than a maximum cost of $450 per square foot, multiplied by the Space Standard for the proposed school construction project

• The maximum square footage allowance per pupil for all grades is defined under the Regulations of the School Construction Grant Program, Section 10-287c-15

A project may qualify for renovation status when the district:

• Can provide documentation that renovating the facility will still cost less than building new, even if costs exceed a maximum of $450 per square foot, multiplied by the Space Standard

• Acknowledges in writing that any costs in excess of the base standard maximum cost of $450 a square foot are ineligible for reimbursement

A project may lose renovation status if:

• Project costs increase to the point where the cost to renovate exceeds the cost to build new, pursuant to CGS Section 10-286 (a) (8)

In determining construction costs for renovation vs. new construction, include:

• Site acquisition costs

• Demolition costs

• Swing space costs

• Remediation costs associated with renovation of the existing facility

• Costs associated with constructing a new facility
