II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The scope of this project is to perform structural reinforcing for seismic loads and to complete an energy efficient remodel the interior to provide office space for State Agencies currently in leased spaces, or otherwise undesirable locations. This project will be located at the former Buildings and Grounds Office which was built in approximately 1900. It is a historical building however it is not on the national or state list of historic buildings. A structural feasibility study has been performed and a 50% submittal has been obtained from Hyytinen Engineering. This study focused on structural seismic retrofit only. The land that the building is on is currently state-owned. The project would be 100% state funded, a portion of which would come from rebate funds from other state energy efficiency or renewable energy projects.
Project Justification: This project should be funded for several reasons. First, the building, which is now essentially vacant, would be retrofitted to comply with current seismic codes and with the proposed upgrades, will be better protected from damage caused by an earthquake and other issues associated with aged buildings. Second, agencies that are currently paying for leased space or are otherwise in undesirable locations, could find economic value in consolidating space and residing in a state owned building. Third, state agencies that may have previously been located further away could now be located within the Capitol Complex and closer to the other agencies with which they work. Finally, the renovation of a historic building with energy efficient methodologies, technologies and materials would reflect the goals of the State to promote energy conservation.
Project Background Information: The seismic retrofit portion of this project was previously proposed as CIP 09-S04. The building was built in 1900 and is 9,600 square feet in area (if the two floors are fully utilized). There have been several remodels done to the interior over the years resulting in some well-planned interior spaces and some spaces that are not being utilized properly. The Buildings and Ground Division moved out of the faciilty in 2011 because the facility was deemed unsafe. The fact that this is a historic building will require additional funding for SHPO review and compliance. The FCA site # is 9956, the building # is 0391. The FCA project # is 0391sft3.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced: dddd
Year existing equipment was installed: 2010
Manufacturer of existing equipment:
Model of existing equipment:
Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? Yes
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): The building will remain vacant, unsafe in the event of an earthquake, and potentially become a liability to the state if does not receive necessary retrofits. Additionally, the state will continue paying for leased facilities when state-owned square footage is available.
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 seismic instability of the current structure will be mitigated through the remodel, thereby providing an opportunity to continue to use the historic building by state agencies.
Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
1. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
Explain: The building is currently vacant, but once the project is complete, personnel will be relocated from their existing leased spaces to this building.
Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? Yes
What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 06/31/14
What is the driving proposed completion date?
