II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: Upgrade Desert Regional Center (DRC) administration building 1391 (SPWB 0256) to meet ADA requirements including remodel/rehabilitation of the four (4) restrooms. Includes evaluation of under floor drain pipes (camera) and replacement of pipes as needed.
Project Justification: DRC serves individuals who are disabled and the administration building needs to meet their needs when they are here. This project will provide the necessary upgrades to comply with federal ADA regulations. ADA Upgrades – Project Index #: 0256ADA2 – Priority Class 1 The building is lacking several ADA requirements. In order to provide ADA compliant access to the building, route-of-travel, signage, restrooms, drinking fountains, counter and cabinets, this project would provide finding for purchase and installation of ADA hardware, fixtures, grab bars and any other alterations necessary. IBC-2006, ICC/ANSI A117.1-2003 and Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) – 2003 were referenced for this project. This project or a portion there of was previously recommended in the FCA report dated 06/15/1998. It has been amended accordingly to reflect conditions observed during the most recent survey date of 02/07/2008. Remodel Restrooms – Project Index #: 0256INT8 – Priority Class 2 There are 4 restrooms in this building. This project would provide for a complete remodel and rehabilitation of 2 restrooms including fixtures, casework, floor and wall finishes and hardware. This project is recommended to be completed at the same time as the ADA restroom and upgrade project.
Project Background Information: Requested in each biennial budget submission since 2005. The DRC administration building 1391 (SPWB 0256) was first occupied in 1977 and does not meet ADA guidelines. Also, the restrooms need to be renovated as maintenance of the aging plumbing and fixtures is increasing. The recent ADA project in DRC building 1306 (SPWB 0371) revealed deteriorated under floor drain pipes which had to be replaced. Building 1391 is four (4) years older than 1306 so it is reasonable to assume the drain pipes in 1391 will be in similar or worse shape than those replaced during the 1306 project.
