II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: This request is for planning/design, construction and FF&E funds for infrastructure improvements and capital renewal for the UNLV Frank and Estella Beam Building. The project would include the replacement of HVAC systems of several floors of the building, replacement of water piping, accessibility improvements, door hardware and access control improvements, concrete replacement and limited renovation and FF&E in building spaces.
17. Project Justification: This facility was originally completed in 1983, and has been fully occupied since its original completion. Many of the major systems in the building are at the end of their useful life and are experienced operational limits and inefficiencies. This 30+ year old facility also needs capital renewal in many spaces, with renovation and new FF&E being a part of the scope of work.
18. Project Background Information: This project was submitted in the 2015-2017 CIP as UNLV’s #2 priority for the NSHE 2% Replacement Value Project Category for $7m, and was not approved.
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? Unknown
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): If this project is not approved, building infrastructure and systems will have operational issues and inefficiencies, as they are at the end of their useful life. Furthermore, this 30+ year old facility is a key and central facility for UNLV academic activities, and needed renovations and replacement of FF&E will not take place to support academic activities in this facility.
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): Fire and life safety systems in the facility will be assessed and improved as needed as a part of infrastructure, building systems and renovation scope of work, and legal issues will be addressed in a similar manner, i.e. any code, accessibility or other items that need to be addressed in the infrastructure improvement and capital renewal scope of work.
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
23a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Yes
23b. Explain: If these project improvements are conducted after the completion of the UNLV Hotel College Academic Building Completion, needs to relocate occupants will be reduced although likely not elimimated, as the building will be partially vacant during this improvement period.
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? 1/2/19
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? Having the project completed and fully operational for the Spring 2019 semester to support academic activities.
