II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The project applies exterior insulation, texture, seal, and paint over CMU at the Nevada State Museum's Indian Hills Curatorial Center south of Carson City. The project coincides with CIP project 7391 requesting HVAC at the Curatorial Center.
17. Project Justification: The project applies exterior insulation to improve energy efficiency, save operating costs, and stabilize the interior environment. Stable temperature and humidity is necessary to conserve sensitive and irreplaceable museum collections and comply with accreditation requirements of the American Alliance of Museums. The project will benefit collections controlled by the Nevada State Museum, Nevada Historical Society, Nevada State Railroad Museum, and other division museums. The facility also stores collections controlled by other state agencies (State Parks, Indian Commission, State Lands, and the Department of Transportation) and Cultural Resource Management collections comprising artifacts retrieved from public lands.
18. Project Background Information: The State Public Works Board has recommended the project in their Facility Condition Analysis Reports since 2003. See Exterior Energy Retrofit, 0860EXT1.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced:
19b. Year existing equipment was installed:
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): The Nevada State Museum will face high heating and cooling costs once HVAC is installed. Collections will not receive a stable environment critical for long-term preservation. Future generations will not receive educational benefits of collections.
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): State museums are charged with collecting, conserving, and securing objects significant to Nevada’s natural and cultural history, per NRS 381. The project allows museums to fulfill their legal mandate. Museums are legally and ethically required to maintain proper care of collections entrusted to them by citizens and agencies. Artifacts and specimens are valuable and irreplaceable. Some artifacts are more than 10,000 years old.
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? 12/31/2017
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? Insulation should occur prior to installation of HVAC. The AAM Accreditation Commission will review the museum in 2017 or 2018. Completion prior to review will support maintaining accreditation.
