The construction costs for school projects follow a logical sequence throughout most countries. Age splits and streaming can occur at differing ages in different countries. The areas, space per student, additional areas and other provisions are often tightly specified by national Education Ministries. Though following national agendas there can be inter-country specification which can appear almost to a common agreed standard for the construction of school projects. In some countries this is prescriptive to an astonishing level of detail, this can help the tenderers for such works as familiarity with those requirements can encourage keen pricing. The differing requirements for increasing ages of pupils is clear, sports areas, gymnasiums, laboratories, even external playing areas and fields all increase the construction costs proportionate to student age. Finishes and detailing can be basic and utilitarian and in some countries schools can almost be identical. Increasing private provision of education has seen the construction for higher specification ‘designer’ projects and this is happening across more and more countries. The projects presented on ECC range from small kindergartens right through to Universities with exceptionally sophisticated facilities. In many examples we are able to provide a functional rate i.e. cost per pupil/student.
