II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The project involves replaces existing roofing material, PVC membrance, on a 22,434 sq. ft. museum building. Inspection will show if any of the sub-roofing material will need replacement also.
Project Justification: The Lost City Museum is located in the hot arid climate of the Mojave Desert. A climate that takes its toll on building material that is exposed to the elements such as a roof. The existing roofing material has been in place for over 15 years and is on the Public Works Board list for replacement. It appears in the agency’s facility reports dated 11/2009 and earlier.
Project Background Information: The original museum building was constructed in 1935 of sundried adobe brick and a pueblo-style flat roof with conventional coating from that time. Additions were made to the museum in 1973 (concrete block) and 1981 (stick built with stucco). These additions have created additional challenges due to the difficulty of tying the new materials into the adobe walls of the original structure. Through the years, various types of coatings have been tried because of the tendency of flat roofs and the tie-ins of subsequent additional to leak. The latest attempt consists of a vinyl membrane stretched over foam-core boards to create angles to help drain water off the roof. This vinyl is subject to high heat and sun radiation due to the harsh summer climate of the area and shows signs of deterioration.

Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): Valuable cultural collections have been entrusted to the State of Nevada for protection and preservation. The Lost City Museum is charged with this responsibility in NRS 381. Collections are housed in designated storage areas and on view to the public in exhibits. The roof of the museum provides protection for these collections by keeping off water, sunlight and heat. Should the roof fail, irreversible damage can be done to collections, and the collections of the museum are mostly irreplaceable. Because these collections are valuable in understanding the prehistory and history of the state, important information can be lost. In addition, the museum plays a vital role in tourism in the state, drawing thousands of people every year to view the collections and learn about our past. The collections also are important to the education of Nevada’s school children. Children come to the museum on school-sponsored field trips to learn about their heritage. The museum also provides outreach to Nevada’s schools to help teach the curriculum established for the various grades. The roof also provides protection for humans both those that visit the museum and those that work there. Leaks can lead to mold growth that can be hazardous to the health of those that use the building. Leaks can also lead to deterioration of the sub-roof material that could result in roof collapse that could harm anyone underneath the fall-in.
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 Lost City Museum was established under NRS 381 in order to preserve and protect the cultural remains of the Nevada’s earliest inhabitants. The museum is partially housed in a National Register-listed structure built in 1935 and enlarged in 1973 and 1981. The natures of the original adobe structure and the later tie-ins create a unique challenge as far as roofing is concerned. The current roof consists of a PVC membrane that ties the three distinct wings into one unit. The current roof is more than 15 years old and is recommended by State Public Works for replacement per the facility report of 11/2009. Roof leaks endanger the collections housed in the museum and make it difficult to achieve the museum’s statutory mission. In extreme conditions of deteriorating roofs, collapses may contribute to danger of human injury. In addition, undetected roof leaks may lead to mold build-up which can be dangerous to human health when the spores are inhaled.
