II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: Lincoln Hall, built in 1895 is part of a 13 building historic district on the UNR campus. It is the second oldest building on campus. The building will be renovated and used for desperately needed faculty office space.
2. Project Justification: Lincoln Hall is 119 years old and is a historically significant building on the UNR Campus. The University of Nevada, Reno campus has seen significant student, faculty and staff growth in the past few years. Office space for faculty is needed immediately. Renovating and perserving this historic building for faculty offices and staff support functions will provide much needed office space.
3. Project Background Information: Lincoln Hall has been used as a residence hall since it was built. The University is building new residence halls to accomodate the growing student enrollment. Moving students out of Lincoln Hall allows the campus to use this space for faculty offices and staff support.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced:
b. Year existing equipment was installed:
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
d. Model of existing equipment:
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? Unknown
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): The University will not be able to provide faculty with suffecient office space to support the growing student population.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
6. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): This is a very old structure and current code upgrades will be accomplished as part of scope of this renovation project. ADA upgrades and modernization of existing life safety systems are also included in this scope of work.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Yes
Explain: Lincoln Hall has been functioning as a residence hall. The students will be vacating this building and moving into other residence halls currently under construction. The vacated space then would be available for academic faculty and staff who could move into Lincoln Hall when the renovation is complete.
b. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
c. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 05/01/2017
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? The number of students, faculty, and staff is growing quickly. The campus strategic plan projects a student population of over 22,000 by 2020. There is very little space on campus to accomodate the number of academic faculty required to support the growth in the student population.
