II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: This project replaces windows on Clark Administration (1927), portions of Mackay Mines (1908), and the Jones Center (1913). In addition, this project replaces exterior doors on seven facilities: the William Raggio Building, Family Medicine, Howard Medical Sciences, Savitt Medical Sciences, Manville Health Sciences, Nellor Biomedical Sciences, and Anderson Health Sciences. Finally, this project also repairs and maintains tuckpointing on the Frandsen Humanities Building and the Thompson Building (partial).
17. Project Justification: The windows all date to original building construction, are inefficient and do not meet modern standards. Replacing them with efficient modern windows improves energy efficiency and occupant comfort. The storefront style doors are inefficient and the associated hardware (closers, hinges, handles) are in poor condition. The doors will be upgraded to current campus standards. Repairing deteriorated tuckpointing is critical to maintain the integrity of the exterior wall and prevent moisture penetration. Failing to maintain tuckpointing can result in far more costly repairs if moisture is allowed to accelerate deterioration. Exterior brickwork on each of these buildings is original.
18. Project Background Information: The University attempts to include these system upgrades in whole building renovations, as funding permits. These facilities were selected for this project because there is no whole building renovation planned at this time.
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.): Potential asbestos and lead.
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Higher heating/cooling costs; significant damage and far higher repair costs if tuck-pointing not maintained. Inability to procure replacement parts for antiquated door hardware.
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):
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? 10/31/2020
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? Heating season begins on October 1st. Replacing windows and doors is possible, but not ideal, when temperatures cool significantly. The tuck-pointing part of this project can proceed longer in the year.
