II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: ADA ACCESS / ROUTE OF TRAVEL UPGRADES – Entrance to the Nevada Historical Society. The construction remodel would tear out and rebuild to current codes the stairs, the rise of the handicap ramps, entry landing pad, signage and ensuring a smooth driveway grade leading into the building.
2. Project Justification: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides for accessibility to sites and services for people with physical and mental limitations. There are numerous areas between the sidewalk and the main entry doors that do not comply with ADA guidelines. The sidewalks, stairway and entry landing are not compliant and should be scheduled for repairs. Due to the slope at the entry landing pad, the adjacent ramps will require modifications to meet the new elevation of the landing. The stairway will need to be completely rebuilt. The handrails have to be re-used, proper returns will need to be retrofitted onto them. Several sections of the sidewalk have to be replaced due to tripping hazards created in front of the original ramp and in front of the stairway. Directional signage from the parking spaces to the entry should be included as well. There are deficiencies in the accessible route from the bus stop and the parking spaces to the entry stairs and accessible ramp. These accessible elements are under the purview of UNR and should be addressed to provide the public with an ADA accessible route from the parking, bus stop and entrance into the building.
3. Project Background Information: The Society's building was constructed in 1967-1968. The left ramp, entry landing pad and stairs date back to the original construction. A recommendation by the 2012-13 Public Works site visit reviewed this area and determined that these areas would need to be replaced to be ADA compliant.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced: concrete, metal and foundation
b. Year existing equipment was installed: 1968
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 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides for accessibility to sites and services for people with physical and mental limitations. There are numerous areas between the sidewalk and the main entry doors that do not comply with ADA guidelines. The sidewalks, stairway and entry landing are not compliant and should be scheduled for repairs. Due to the slope at the entry landing pad, the adjacent ramps will require modifications to meet the new elevation of the landing. The stairway will need to be completely rebuilt. By fixing these entrance issues, the Society and State of Nevada will eliminate any potential ADA issues. The handrails have to be re-used, proper returns will need to be retrofitted onto them. Several sections of the sidewalk have to be replaced due to tripping hazards created in front of the original ramp and in front of the stairway. There are deficiencies in the accessible route from the bus stop and the parking spaces to the entry stairs and accessible ramp. These accessible elements are under the purview of UNR and should be addressed to provide the public with an ADA accessible route from the parking, bus stop and entrance into the building.
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 potential tripping safety hazards and ADA legal issues that would resolved by making these entrance repairs. The entrance stairs are sloping to the right while the metal strips get icy when the weather gets cold. The railings would need to be extended and the ends of the stairs are starting to crumb. The slope of the entry landing pad at the entrance to the building is greater than the allowed handicap wheelchair codes. Due to the rise and drop affect, it causes people to trip.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
Explain:
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? unknown
