Budget opportunities

  • Project has $95,291 in contingency for unforeseen conditions; if no problems are encountered, contingency becomes available

  • LED lights and VFD pumps will create annual energy savings of $37,432. If contingency is not available, we could finance Option 4 improvements by pledging 4.7 years of energy savings towards cost of construction

  • If full contingency is available, reduces energy savings pledge to 2.2 years
