II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: Perform necessary upgrades to the cemetery chapel in order for the building to be in compliance with the current Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) and NRS 338.180.
2. Project Justification: The State Public Works Division Facility Condition Analysis report identified three areas within the cemetery chapel building that are in violation of current Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). The signage in this building must be updated in order to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines. The ADA Standards for Accesible Design, Chapter 7: Communication Elements and Features requires interior building signage to include braille. The signs in the chapel do not have braille on them and are in violation of this requirement. The two drinking fountains in the chapel need to be replaced in order to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines. The ADA Standards for Accesible Design, Chapter 6: Plumbing Elements and Facilities subsection 602.6 (Water Flow) states that the spout shall provide a flow of water 4 inches (100 mm) high minimum and the angle of the water stream shall be 30 degrees maximum. Where spouts are located between 3 inches (75 mm) and 5 inches (125 mm) maximum from the front of the unit, the angle of the water stream shall be 15 degrees maximum. The current drinking fountains do not provide the required water flow requirements and must be replaced. Subsection 602.7 (Drinking Fountains for Standing Persons) states that the spout outlets of drinking fountains for standing persons shall be 38 inches (965 mm) minimum and 43 inches (1090 mm) maximum above the finish floor or ground. The current drinking fountains are both at a height of 36 inches (915mm). One of the drinking fountains must be replaced in order to meet this minimum height requirement for standing people. The sink and faucet in the kitchenette area of the chapel do not have a clear and accessible path for persons in a wheelchair and are in violation of current Americans with Disabilities Act Accessability Guidelines and are also in violation of NRS 338.180: Accommodation of persons with physical handicap or disability; verification of conformity with requirements; enforcement. This project would provide funding for construction of an accessible sink and faucet and an accessible path of travel throughout the kitchenette area.
3. Project Background Information: Some of these necessary ADA improvements were identified on the Facility Condition Analysis back in June 2005, but actions were never taken to improve them. Having identified three areas that are not in comlpliance with current ADAAG requirements and are a safety hazard for the disabled, these improvements must be completed.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced: Drinking Fountains, Kitchen Sink & Faucet
b. Year existing equipment was installed: 2002
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
d. Model of existing equipment:
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? No
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): If this project is not approved the cemetery chapel will continue to be in violation of current ADAAG requirements and NRS 338.180. These violations will continue to pose a safety risk for all employees and cemetery visitors that have a physical disability.
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 approval and completion of this project will bring the cemetery chapel within compliance of the ADAAG guidelines, NRS 338.180 and remove all safety hazards mentioned above.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
Explain: The cemetery staff will be able to coordinate with the contractors to schedule memorial services around the times the work is the be completed.
b. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
