Indian Hill Elementary School
Round Lake Area Schools Community Unit School
Round Lake, Illinois
This 75,000 square foot addition to Indian Hill School adds space for 900 students. The addition includes a gymnasium/ cafeteria multi-purpose room (shared with the existing elementary), 24 new classrooms, 6 laboratory rooms, and chorus and band space.
The initial budget for the work was $11.2 million, but through a very competitive bidding process involving over 150 bidders the initial contract amount was just over $8.5 million.
This low bid allowed the district to accept several alternates and scope increases while still maintaining a substantial reserve.
