II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The scope of this project is a complete remodel of an existing loading dock and ramp. The existing access to the loading dock and ramp have proven to be outright dangerous. The dock has a difficult approach, a substantial drop off to the East side, no guardrails except on the ramp, and no access for scissor lifts, forklifts, catering carts, or other small equipment. A properly designed approach would greatly reduce most risk and if the ramp were continuous, instead of a switch-back, it would provide the much needed access of scissor lifts and fork lifts as well as other small equipment.
17. Project Justification: The existing loading dock clearly presents a hazardous risk to all who use it. The potential for personnel to trip and/or fall is very high and could quite easily be deadly. Proper access is minimal, which creates more accidental risk for vehicles. An adequately designed approach and continuous equipment ramp with safety features such as railing and striping installed, would not only enhance and facilitate daily operations, it would nearly eliminate all of the current risk and hazards of the existing loading dock.
18. Project Background Information: The facility was constructed during 2007-2009. The facility became open to the public in 2011. The loading dock has been a continuous hazard ever since the beginning.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: Concrete and safety railings
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: 2007-2009
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
19d. Model of existing equipment:
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? No
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? No
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Access will be minimal and high potential hazard will continue to exist.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): Eliminating the hazards and risk are of the utmost importance of this project. The safety of all staff, volunteers, outside vendors and contractors of all types are put at risk on a regular basis. If a staff member is injured it will become a workers comp case. If a civilian is injured the state will most likely be sued with a good chance of loosing. The completion of this project would have the full potential to eliminate most, if not all hazards and risk associated with the existing loading dock.
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
23a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
23b. Explain:
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 6/30/2019
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? Existing risk.
