Daily Herald report

The Arlington Heights Elementary District 25 school board has approved paying nearly $1 million in architectural and construction management fees for the Greenbrier Elementary School expansion project.

The board this week voted to approve an architectural services agreement with STR Partners for about $426,000, while Nicholas and Associates' construction management fee for the expansion project is about $500,000. Both fees are part of the total $6.4 million construction cost, officials said.

Minor site preparation is underway at Greenbrier, where a two-story, 8,280-square-foot addition will be built. It will contain four classrooms, two small group spaces and two offices, while the existing building's computer lab will be converted into a classroom, and an odd-shaped classroom will be renovated into two small group spaces. Major construction is set to begin in the next couple of weeks and be complete by next August.
