II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: SDCC Housing unit 8 Replacement Project description (One Sentence): Due to the physical condition and condition of infrastructure utilities, this build should be condemned and replaced. This housing unit is beyond repair, as any upgrade to it will not be sustainable. The underground utilities are rusting out causing routine electrical “bolted fault conditions. The plumbing/ sewer lines are also ova ling and collapsing causing routine catastrophic failures. The industrial prison grade door locking mechanisms fail regularly and parts are extremely difficult to locate and stock. The exterior building envelope is completely destroyed as well as all of the glazing.
17. Project Justification: This entire Housing unit needs to be replaced, as any effective repairs will not be sustainable and would likely exceed the realistic useful life of the structure. The original design and construction of this building were so poor, any repairs would require and extreme amount of intrusive excavation and re-installation. The remaining fixtures, building interior and exterior envelopes are so poorly constructed it would have to be completely stripped down and re worked. The correctional grade equipment such as locking hardware, cell doors etc will require complete replacement. The air conditioning and exhaust ventilation,every inch of electrical wiring, and every bathroom and shower facility will need to be replaced.
18. Project Background Information: This Housing unit has a maximum capacity of 396 Inmates, and currently houses mixed custody due to strategic planning and programs. We will sooner than later experience utility and building systems failures that will require the evacuation of the entire Housing unit. This housing unit was a design build project in 1988 that utilized inmate labor. Note 3 Ramifications if Project not Approved (Short Essay) There is a potential that we will need to evacuate this housing unit due to utility or system failures causing unsafe living conditions.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:

19b. Year existing equipment was installed:
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
19d. Model of existing equipment:
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials?
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement?
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Unit 8 is has a maximum capacity of 396 Inmates, and currently houses mixed custody, including segregation, inmates. This building is about 34 years old and has reached a point where is impractical and cost prohibitive to continue to maintain and repair. The underground utilities are rusting and causing routine electrical fault (outage) conditions. The plumbing and sewer lines are also deteriorating and causing routine failures. The industrial prison grade door locking mechanisms also fail regularly and parts are extremely difficult to locate to make repairs and sustain security. In addition, the building is completely disintegrating, as well as all of the glazing. The only reasonable resolution is to raze and replace this structure as continuing to use this facility can reasonably be expected to result in complete and catastrophic utility and building systems failures that would require inmate evacuation and could expose inmates and staff to unintended injuries.
