The Bryan City Board of Edu­ca­tion agreed at their Mon­day night meet­ing that the pro­posed new build­ing for grades 6–12 will be designed as a two-story struc­ture.

The two-story plan was approved fol­low­ing exam­i­na­tion of archi­tects’ esti­mates on the con­struc­tion and main­te­nance of a one-story vs. a two-story build­ing.

The Bryan Times reports that square footage would be the same, 148,880 square feet.

Ini­tial con­struc­tion costs for the two-story struc­ture are pro­jected to be $868,742 more, but over 50 years the main­te­nance for a one-story build­ing would cost much more.
