Richmond County Board of Education Building Program
Phase III: School SPLOST Program (2007-2011)

total value of all projects: 
$160 million  
design professional contact:

GMK worked with nine architectural firms during this building program.

“We have had three phases of SPLOST monies during the period GMK has been managing our construction program totaling over $360 million. At the end of Phase I and II, all projects came in under budget as promised. At this point in Phase III [June 2009], all projects to date have been under budget and on time. This is due primarily to the management of the program by the GMK team. This results in saving thousands of dollars for the taxpayers of Richmond County.”
