SPWD 4 digit Building No. (for existing buildings)
Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended)
II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: This project will provide complete architectural and engineering services to design a new two-story building and a detached storage facility to house the previously mentioned agencies.
Project Justification: Economies would be realized for the subject agencies as well as the State as a whole by occupying one State-owned facility rather than leasing and maintaining multiple separate offices. Some agencies, such as NDOW, are currently occupying outdated facilities with high ongoing maintenance requirements, vandalism problems, and very poor energy consumption. This project would provide a modern, State-owned building that would be perfectly tailored to the needs of the occupying agencies, would be energy efficient, and would utilize State dollars to construct a modern, State-owned building rather than for maintaining multiple aging buildings. Also, some of the buildings are marginally sized for their staffing levels and are projected to be too small in the near future. Some buildings have insufficient parking.
Project Background Information: DCNR originally applied for this project as a part of their 2007 CIP applications. At that time, DCNR hired Gary Guy Wilson Architects to perform conceptual site plans, conceptual building plans, a feasibility study, cost estimates, and a due diligence report. The documentation is very thorough for a preliminary study, and by and large remains substantially applicable to the 2013 CIP application. Currently, the Department of Wildlife is taking the lead on re-application for the 2013 CIP. Land is being secured through an R & PP lease from the BLM. Initial cost is $25/year for the lease.
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? No
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): Money will continue to be spent on the ever-increasing maintenance needs of multiple obsolete buildings.
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): NDOW and DCNR currently co-occupy a faciltity at 4747 Vegas Blvd with an outbuilding that serves as equipment and vehicle storage for both departments, as well as secure storage for law enforcement. Vandalism and security are significant problems at this location. Vandals graffiti, deface vehicles, cut the perimeter fence, and cause all manner of general damage to the building. Some of the costs associated with repair of these types of vandalism is obvious (i.e. scrub graffiti, fix property damage, etc.). However, other costs which may be less obvious are significant. Law Enforcement worries that security of their evidence could be compromised, and employees feel unsafe at work, especially when travelling between the office and their vehicles early in the morning or late in the evening. To address these concerns, the agencies have been contemplating how they can fund costly upgrades like added site lighting, security fencing, and monitoring/alarm systems. These solutions are not fool-proof, and they represent only a percentage of additional money that must be spent on the building in the future due to age and other concerns like changing building codes.
Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
