Now that the three funding rounds of the BER for Element 3 have been approved, apparently everyone’s a little concerned that there’s not enough money to get everyone’s projects finished. Most schools were given the money based on cost estimates from four/five/six months ago, and now that the projects are being tendered with the other million projects, oh surprise surprise, they’ve all come in a tad more than expected. So now some of these projects have to be scaled back, or the school has to come up with additional funds. So lots more work for architects in redesign, and more work for schools trying to find more funds and prioritise already limited project scopes.
Crazy BER…that’s all i can really say.
