II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: This project would provide funding to assess, design and repair the existing stucco on the building's exterior and to replace the original single pane, non tempered and vapor locked windows with double pane, high efficiency windows, tempered glazing. Doors and hardware in storefront glazing would be repaired or replaced as needed.
Project Justification: In many locations, the stucco system that serves as the building's exterior seal has become cracked and is peeling away from the underlying insulation which has allowed moisture to penetrate the building's envelope. The failure of this system has led to increased maintenance due to leaks associated with precipitation. In addition, many of the building's windows are single pane, non-tempered and have significant gasket deterioration that create safety and energy issues. The stucco and window conditions are both safety and comfort issues for occupants and contribute to inefficient energy consumption. Facility Condition Analyses completed by ISES Corporation in 2007 and 2010 recommended replacement of storefront/windows and exterior EIFS.
Project Background Information: The original Red Mountain Building was constructed in 1976 with major addition in 1980, 1987, and 2004. The EIFS (Exterior Stucco and Insulation System) and windows were installed over all phases of construction. Funding for this project was requested in the 2011-2013 CIP but was not appropriated.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced: n/a
Year existing equipment was installed: n/a
Manufacturer of existing equipment: n/a
Model of existing equipment: n/a
Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): If this project is not completed the ramifications would be a continued increase of funds for energy, materials and staff time that are already strained. Additionally if left in its current state mold growth and water damage could occur.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): The damaged stucco system is a source of interior walls leaks that could lead to mold growth. Many of the existing windows are not tempered and are no longer code compliant which is a safety issue. Both of these items could lead to serious health issues with legal ramifications.
Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
1. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Yes
Explain: For safety reasons staff should be relocated during window replacement both for safety and access reasons.
Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 8/15/2013
What is the driving proposed completion date?
