II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The purpose of this project is to construct a 70,000 square foot building located on the Henderson campus along with the needed infrastructure, including a new central plant and the necessary site improvements. The project will be all inclusive and provide for professional fees, construction and FF&E. CSN is currently engaged in the development of the architectural programming of the space which is envisioned to include: 1) SIM Center space, 2) joint use classrooms, and 3) classroom, labs and offices. Due to the location of the new facility, the project will need to provide additional site parking, an extension of the central pedestrian circulation path connecting the new building to existing facilities and outdoor student gathering areas. In addition, a new central plant will be constructed. This plant will be designed to accommodate the new facility as well as future mechanical needs of the campus.
17. Project Justification: Henderson is experiencing a growth in the economic development and growing health care corridor with new hospitals, clinics and related services. Current and projected workforce demand is driving the need for qualified indviduals in the health disciplines. Both CSN and NSC are poised to help provide these qualified professionals necessary to support this growth. CSN is located adjacent to Foothill High School which can also provide a pipeline for a trained workforce educated within the proposed facility. This joint use facility will complement Henderson’s growth through the expansion of science courses and allied health disciplines. The facility will also provide much needed laboratory space to handle CSN’s pent up demand for science classes. Currently, CSN’s Henderson Campus does not have the capacity to handle the current student demand in this area. The new facility will enable CSN to provide critical programming, not currently available such as A&P courses and allied health programming.
18. Project Background Information: The College of Southern Nevada and Nevada State College are working in collaboration on joint academic and student support programs to enable students to progress through an Associate’s to a Bachelor’s degree and into the workforce. The facility engages this partnership for greater efficiency directly benefitting students. The facility will enable sciences courses that serve as the feeder/gateway courses to health sciences such as nursing, emergency medical, cardiorespiratory, and diagnostic medical sonography and other allied health science programs to be provided at the Henderson Campus. The Henderson community located in the southeast part of the Las Vegas Valley is experiencing an expansion of healthcare facilities and integrated services. The Union Village Project which is planned for a 155 acre master planned facility is envisioned to include the Henderson Hospital (a 200 bed hospital slated to open in October 2016), long term acute care, skilled nursing facility, a retirement village, ambulatory care pavilion, medical offices, wellness areas, and associated retail and support services. The project estimated to be completed within the next 10 years will include 3-4 phases with the first component opening in fall 2016, and is estimated to provide 17,000 jobs in direct, indirect and construction fields.

21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): This facility is geared towards anticipating the need for qualified individuals for the burgeoning medical services community in Henderson. Without an educational facility supported by both CSN and NSC, the area will not be able to provide the workforce necessary to manage this industry growth. Currently, health care providers are having to look outside of Nevada for a qualified workforce.
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): N/A
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
