AWA is projecting the expansion will cost more than $5M
- Hard costs: $3,750,000
o Materials, labor, site work, wiring, security, curbing, paving, etc.;
- Soft costs: $570,000
o Architects, engineers, permitting, insurance, contingencies, etc.;
- Furniture and fixtures: $170,000
o While AWA will strive to use many items from the existing facility, the reality is that many items have outlived their usefulness and need to be replaced; Flooring, air flow, cages, noise reduction, commercial washers and dryers – and so much more – are needed to keep the environment healthy and safe for all who enter out buildings.
- Capital Campaign and Related Costs: $90,000
o Consulting, printing, mailing, events, donor recognition plaques, etc.
- Operating and Program-Related Costs: $190,000
o Increased operating expenses, e.g., electric, water, for first two years
o Increased staffing and additional center hours for first three years
o One time phasing expenses for renting, storage, staying operational
