California, Florida to Lead K-12 Construction through 2008


Several states will experience growth in the K-12 school construction market through 2008, according to 2005-2008 K-12 School Market for Design and Construction Firms from Natick, Mass.-based construction management consulting firm ZweigWhite.

Leading the way is California, which boasts the largest K-12 school market in the U.S. and where K-12 enrollment is projected to grow by more than 10% between 2005 and 2013. And since November 2002, voters have approved two school bond measures of $10 billion or more to repair, modernize and build schools.

Florida is also projected to see a large amount of school construction by 2008, largely in response to a public school enrollment increase of nearly 12% between 1997 and 2005. Additionally, an amendment to the state constitution will require school districts to cap class sizes by 2010, leading many school districts to construct additional facilities to accommodate existing enrollment.

Other states expected to see strong growth in K-12 school design and construction are Georgia, Massachusetts, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
