National School Delivery Cost Benchmarking

2018 National School Delivery Cost Benchmarking Published!

Published: Thu 15th March 2018

This document publishes the results of a national cost benchmarking exercise undertaken by Hampshire County Council in partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council on new build, extended and refurbished primary, secondary and SEN schools.

This report provides a useful reference point for Local Authorities when establishing their school building costs. As part of the initiative the Local Government Association (LGA) is seeking to encourage greater collaboration between Local Authorities to drive down new and refurbished school costs. A benchmarking workshop was held on 6 October 2017 to discuss the output of the 2017 study and the presentation of information included and analysed in that report. As a result some additional features have been included this time. It is also intended to further develop the data following the workshop and publish any additional findings.
