II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: This project would provide funding to assess, design and repair the existing stucco on the building’s exterior, replace the original single-pane, non-tempered windows with double-pane, high efficiency windows with tempered glazing, replace double-pane windows with compromised seals, replace fourth floor PVC roof, and replace exterior door systems that are failing due to age.
2. Project Justification: In many locations, the stucco system that serves as the building’s exterior seal has cracked and is peeling away from the underlying insulation which has allowed moisture to penetrate the building envelope. The failure of this system has led to increased maintenance due to leaks associated with rain and snow and creates an opportunity for mold growth. The fourth floor roof is approaching 25 years and showing signs of surface failure and detachment from the structure. An independent facilities condition assessment by ISES Corporation identified the roof for replacement in 2007. In addition, many of the building’s windows are inefficient single-pane, non-tempered glass that create energy and safety issues. The stucco and window conditions are also both comfort and safety issues for occupants and contribute to inefficient energy consumption.
3. Project Background Information: The original Red Mountain Building was constructed in 1976. Major additions to the building occurred in 1980, 1985, 1987, 1993 and 2004. The EIFS (Exterior Stucco and Insulation System) and windows were installed over several phases of construction. This project was submitted, but not funded, in the 2011 and 2013 CIP.
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): If this project is not completed building interior spaces may be adversely affected by water infiltration and mold growth which could necessitate expensive and disruptive emergency repairs during high use periods. Further, existing inefficient building insulation and window systems will result in additional wasted energy expense.
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): The damaged stucco system is a source of water intrusion that may lead to mold growth. Many existing windows are non-tempered in locations where the code requires safety glass which presents both health safety and legal issues for the State.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Yes
Explain: Staff should be relocated during window frame and glazing replacement for safety and contractor access purposes.
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? 8/15/2015
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? Prevent further building envelope degradation and avoid disruption to fall and spring semester classes.
