Capital Improvement

If a project's total budget is less than $3.5 million, or if the project is less than $500,000 of new space, or if it's an infrastructure upgrade with a budget of less than $7.5M, it's an improvement project. Any roofing, paving, hazmat, remodel, or even a new project that meets these criteria falls into this category. Work includes civil, utility, parks, courts, jails, armories, schools, general, mechanical, and electrical.
