II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: The Henderson campus renovation will entail renovating the Student Services area within the B building and creating a new campus entrance for the site. The Student Services area is the first stop for new students joining the college. It is vital that their first impression is not one of confusion and chaos. The renovation of the student services space will help create a more efficient and less confusing area. In addition, the front entrance to the campus will create a visual starting point for incoming students. A front entrance to the campus currently does not exist. The existing site plan does not have a clearly defined front entrance making way finding for new students and staff difficult. By reorienting the entrance drive and creating a front plaza, the student services building will be the main focus for arriving students. It will also set the campus up for future expansion as designed by the Henderson master plan.
2. Project Justification: Currently, the existing student services area does not function well. The department has outgrown their area and has had difficulty fitting in all of the necessary functions within the small space. Due to the density of the services offered within the area, the space becomes confusing and awkward when students are required to stand in long lines. In addition, there is a lack of privacy for those students being helped. The renovation will help organize the services, reduce the confusion, and provide more privacy for students and staff dealing with confidential information. The project will also re-align the front entrance to the campus. Currently, the campus does not really have a “front door”. First time students typically end up at the wrong buildings only to have to be re-directed to the B building. The re-alignment of the entrance will help eliminate this confusion. In addition, the existing street and parking lot at the front entrance are in need of major maintenance. The timing of this renovation will not only help create better circulation within the site, but provide the much needed overhaul that the parking lots require.
3. Project Background Information: This is a new project for CSN. It has not been entered in any previous CIP sessions. Last year, CSN hired an architect to prepare a program for the student services area to identify the needs of the department.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced: N/A
b. Year existing equipment was installed: N/A
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: N/A
d. Model of existing equipment: N/A
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? Unknown
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): The College will continue to have overcrowding issues with the student services area until a re-design of the area is completed which will allow for greater efficiency of space.
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 project will help resolve student confidentiality issues. Currently, the space is too crowded to handle the number of students visiting student services at the start of each semester. A re-organization of the space would allow the College to use the space more efficiently and effectively, reducing the chance of information being overheard of seen.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Yes
Explain: During the remodel of the student services area, the College will need to find another location to handle the on going needs of the students. All faculty and staff within this area will need temporary facilities.
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? 2018
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? The Student Services area is already too small and inefficient to work properly.
