II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The scope of this project is to complete planning and design for a seismic retrofit and remodel of the existing Buildings and Grounds Building. This building is an unreinforced masonry structure of the type that has been shown to be particularly vulnerable to significant damage in a major earthquake. In addition to structural and seismic strengthening of the building, an architectural remodel of the building’s interior spaces, and major upgrades to mechanical and electrical systems would be completed as part of this project. Fire sprinklers would also be added and the current antiquated fire alarm system would be replaced. ADA access to both floors of the building would be added.
17. Project Justification: A study by Melvyn Green and Associates, funded in the 2007 legislative session as part of Project No. 07-M46, identifies several deficiencies in the existing building. The interior spaces in this building have grown over the years in an ad hoc manner and there has never been any comprehensive planning for the efficient use of spaces. The building is an unreinforced masonry structure, which requires seismic strengthening to meet modern life safety criteria for seismic performance. The building’s heating and air-conditioning systems are of varying ages and are in need of replacement in the near future. The physical operational needs of Buildings and Grounds as well as the Capitol Police, who also occupy the building, should be organized in a more functional manner to improve the efficiency of the working personnel as well as improve facilities for maintaining records, drawings, and other information administered by the division. This project would allow the building spaces to be arranged in an effective manner to accomplish these goals.
18. Project Background Information: The Buildings and Grounds Building built in the early part of the 20th century was originally the Nevada National Guard Armory, and has some historical significance to the State. In the late 1940’s the building was modified to serve as office space. The current tenants of this building are Buildings and Grounds and Grants Division
