II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: This phase of work is for the programming, planning and design of this new facility. Initial targets for the project include a project budget of $32M (60% state funds, 40% UNLV donor funds), to be verified during planning. The new facility (subject to programming and planning verification) is anticipated to be 35,000 sf–50,000 sf, focused on research labs/support facilities, teaching space, prototyping space, student project and collaboration space, faculty/graduate student space and other spaces. The project also may include assessment/potential limited improvements to existing TBE Building or other engineering facilities, to maximize function and quality of College of Engineering space in an effective manner.
17. Project Justification: The UNLV College of Engineering has seen significant growth in the past 15 - 20 years. The last notable dedicated engineering building completed on the UNLV Campus was the 109,500 sf Thomas Beam Engineering (TBE) Building, in 1988. From Fall 2000 to Fall 2015, UNLV Engineering majors headcount enrollment more than doubled - from 1,222 to 2,562. Additional academic and research space is necessary for the overall support, growth and quality of this program.
