II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The scope of work is to complete architectural and engineering design services, and produce construction documents in support of land development, site design, and building design of a 50,000 square foot, two-story, multi-agency office building, a 14,000 square foot detached storage facility, and associated parking in Las Vegas. The project would provide needed space (office, administrative, reception, conference rooms, break rooms, storage rooms, supply rooms, and training rooms) for the various agencies, as well as provide a safe working environment for several agencies including: Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW), Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Nevada Division of Forestry (NDF), Nevada State Parks (NSP), State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), Division of Water Resources (DWR), and Division of Minerals (DOM). The purpose of the project is multi-fold including, but not limited to economics, worker safety, crowded work space, insufficient parking, energy efficiency (energy and maintenance), and consolidation. The proposed project location is on land secured through a recreation and public purpose lease from the BLM and is located at the northeast corner of W. Flamingo Road and S. El Capitan Way. Preliminary planning efforts associated with the project including a property feasibility study and due diligence report by Gary Guy Wilson Architects, and a preliminary building planning effort by TSK Architects. NDOW expects to be able to provide some level of funding for the project, but until critical determinations are made with respect to what other agencies will be occupying the proposed facility and the percentage of the facility that NDOW will be occupying has been finalized, NDOW funding cannot be committed.
17. Project Justification: The multi-agency office should be funded for several reasons including economics, worker safety, energy efficiency (energy and maintenance), and consolidation. Economically, the State would benefit by housing many agencies under one roof at one convenient location. Funds used to lease facilities would be recovered and used for the benefit the State. New building and energy technologies would be incorporated into the new building design, making the facility more energy efficient and saving tax payer dollars. Maintaining as many as six agency sites would be reduced to one site, saving additional tax payer dollars. Worker safety is a major concern for NDOW and NSP. The current NDOW and NSP offices are located in a deteriorating neighborhood. Several armed robberies, burglaries, stolen cars, vandalism, drug dealings, and domestic violence incidents have occurred within approximately ½ mile of the NDOW and NSP office, including the site of the NDOW and NSP office site. NDOW and NSP have outgrown their current facility with respect to worker space and parking. Work areas are crowded, which often result in unsafe working conditions. Many of the workers have to park off-site, which creates a significant amount of stress with the workers when getting off work in the nighttime hours. The current NDOW and NSP office facilities do not meet the State’s energy efficiency criteria and are frequently in need of maintenance.
18. Project Background Information: A property feasibility study and a preliminary building planning effort have been performed for the proposed multi-agency office. The project was approved on the 2007 CIP for a feasibility study of property suitability. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) hired Gary Guy Wilson Architects to perform a feasibility study, prepare conceptual site and building plans, prepare an engineer’s estimate, and a due diligence report. In November 2016, TSK Architects completed a building planning summary for NDOW and DCNR that resulted in preliminary building and parking space need requirements. The building summary also provided information on the various room types, furniture type and layout, finishes, lighting, service requirements (HVAC, plumbing, power, telecomm, data, and audio visual).
