At the Department level ranking of this project:
The Department will rank their projects 1 through the lowest ranked project (i.e., If 5 projects were submitted by the Department a ranking of 1 would be assigned to the most important or most needed project and a ranking of 5 would be the least needed project).

Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended)
II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The improved exit lighting will provide increased safety in being able to quickly exit the building. The lighting replacement in general will allow for increased visibility and safety for staff and clients in finding their way around and out of the building in the event of an emergency at night or at times there is decreased visibility. It will decrease liability to the facility as a result of such emergencies and will enhance the security of the perimeter of the building.This project includes replacement of lighting fixtures within the facility (halls, living areas, bathrooms, offices, gym, and administrative areas) with the exception of the fixtures installed in the 1999, 12 bed addition. Also, this project will include replacement of old exit sites with new self-illuminated or L.E.D. style signs, band installation of additional emergency lights, perimeter lighting. Should there be an emergency event such as an earthquake where the sprinklers malfunction due to a lack of seismic bracing, the state would be liable for having not taken these preventive measures. This lack of preventive planning places clients and staff at risk of injury or death in such a disaster. The building is in an area known to have had earthquakes. This current request will complete the seismic bracing and clearance penetrations for existing fire sprinkler pipes as required per NFPA13.
Project Justification: The lighting fixtures available today are far more efficient. It is estimated with the installation of more energy efficient fixture, a 40% reduction in electric energy usage could be realized. Lighting is a critical element for safe escape in an emergency and will ensure compliance with national safety codes. The recommended seismic strengthening is to improve the fire sprinkler system performance and to provide life safety for the building occupants in the event of a major earthquake.
Project Background Information: The technology is currently outdated with with CFL's and incandescent bulbs, discolored lenses and reflectors. Physical support of water based fire suppression system is considered essential to the systems proper operation.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced:
Year existing equipment was installed:
Manufacturer of existing equipment:
Model of existing equipment:
Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): Ramifications if this project is not approved include a lack of adequate lighting throughout the building/perimeter, which is critical for life safety and security. Current lighting conditions waste energy. The proposed upgrades should significantly decrease energy usage. If the seismic portion of this project is not approved, the facilities fire sprinkler system will not have adequate physical support against a seismic occurrence. The system would likely fail, resulting in great risk of harm to the building’s occupants, as well as a legal liability to the state.
