II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: The Oasis Program contains five residential home kitchens that are mostly original to the building (1981), which needs to be repaired and remodeled to ADA standards.
2. Project Justification: The quality of construction and installation of the Oasis residential kitchens were inadequate for the high usage at these facilities. The cabinets and countertops are delaminating and failing. As such, the kitchen should be replaced with heavy duty quality components. The cabinets should be finished inside and outside with a melamine or similar finish, which encapsulates the door, frame, and shelving. The countertops should be constructed of a highly durable product, such as stainless steel, over a moisture resistant underlayment to minimize swelling and damage from water exposure. ADA compliance according to NRS 338.180, IBC - 2012, ICC/ANSI A117.1 - 2009 and the most current version of the ADA standards for accessible design should be incorporated into the design such as providing an accessible sink.
3. Project Background Information: As these Oasis buildings were constructed back in 1981, the kitchens are in need of replacement to current standards for high usage facilities.
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): Eventually, each cabinet door and drawer will no longer function because temporary maintenance fixes are inadequate. Delaminated counters and broken doors convey a home that is in disrepair. As these homes are being utilized to provide residential treatment for children, it is important that these homes are properly maintained. Lastly, if a kitchen is in need of major repairs, it is possible that licensing may put a hold on the home until the kitchen is remodeled. This would result in clients not receiving the services they need.
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): It is possible that broken cabinet doors, drawers, or delaminated surfaces may be used as contraband by the clients served by the residential homes. As such, it becomes critical to ensure that each Oasis home has a kitchen that is constructed well as a high usage facility. As mentioned previously, if a kitchen is in need of major repairs, it is possible that licensing may put a hold on the home until the kitchen is remodeled. This would result in clients not receiving the services they need.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Unknown
Explain: If the project requires that clients be moved to a different home, then it would require vacating the building.
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? 2017-06-30
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? It is unknown how much longer the campus can continue operating under the current conditions. In order to prevent any health and life safety issues, it is recommended that the project start as soon as possible.
