II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The purpose of this project is to provide for several deferred maintenance needs at the West Charleston, North Las Vegas and Henderson campuses. The project will address four issues: 1) the modernization of six elevators located at each of CSN’s three main campuses, 2) North Las Vegas Library Renovation and Seismic Upgrade – The scope of this portion of the project includes upgrading the East wing of the North Las Vegas Main building to meet current seismic codes. In addition, the project will entail a renovation to the existing finishes and furnishings within the Library space that will be disrupted by the seismic construction. John A Martin Structural Engineers has completed conceptual drawings on the seismic upgrade, however, no plans have been completed for the renovation of the library. CSN will be requesting funding for the full design and construction of the remodel, 3) Mechanical renovations of the West Charleston G building exhaust fans and fume hood controls, the WCC D&E building cooling tower replacement, and chiller replacements at both the Henderson C building and the North Las Vegas Telecom building, and 4) replacement of our data system core and distribution switches at all three campuses.
17. Project Justification: 1) Elevator modernization – this project will modernize six existing elevators at CSN that are currently obsolete, 2) North Las Vegas Library Renovation and Seismic Upgrade – this will be a continuation of an existing project to bring the structure up to current seismic codes as well as an opportunity to renovate the existing library. The seismic upgrade will include the installation of interior and exterior shear walls, as well as reinforcing the interior columns. It is anticipated that the seismic upgrade will be destructive to the existing finishes within the library. The library finishes are currently in poor condition, and the retrofit will provide the opportunity to replace them. In addition, the library and the surrounding office area is in need of a retrofit to help meet the changing needs of the students. The library is currently structured around out dated planning concepts (a large stack area and individual student carrels). New library design tends to be more collaborative and technology focused. The structural work required will provide the perfect opportunity to transform from an outdated library support area to a more modern library incorporating student collaboration areas and fewer stacks. 3) Mechanical renovations – The mechanical units in the G building are continually failing. Without these units, CSN will not be able to provide science labs to the students. 4) Core and distribution switches – the core switches and distribution switches at all three main campuses are past their anticipated life span. These units are in desperate need of replacement. These are the main switches at each campus that serve the smaller access switches. If these pieces of equipment fail, it could be catastrophic to the functioning of the college.
18. Project Background Information: The project background is as following for the four different areas: 1) Elevator replacement – the existing elevators are currently obsolete and fail repeatedly. Repairs are continually being made, but the parts are very expensive as they must be custom made, 2) North Las Vegas Library Renovation and Seismic Upgrade – In 2014, CSN hired an engineer to design the seismic upgrades needed to bring the East wing up to current codes. During this year, CSN was able to begin these upgrades, but only had funding for a portion of the work. Shear walls were added to the building structure on the first floor student services area. In order to complete the project, some additional shear walls will need to be added and the interior columns will need to be reinforced, 3) mechanical renovations – the mechanical renovations listed above will replace old, worn out equipment that is at the end of its life span. This equipment is habitually breaking, leaking and requires constant repair, 4) the main core data switches are each campus are past their life span and are in need of replacement.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:

19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? Unknown
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.): N/A
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): 1) Elevators – these elevators are currently obsolete. Any parts that need replacement must be custom made and are very expensive. The elevators are constantly failing causing problems for students and staff during the semester. 2) Library seismic upgrade - the Main building structural system does not meet current seismic codes. This remodel is necessary to bring the building up to current standards. 3) mechanical renovations – The College is continually repairing the mechanical units, however, there will come a point where this is no longer possible. Without these units, the buildings will not be functional. 4) The core switches must be replaced so that the data systems at the College do not fail. Failure of the core switches would affect the functioning of an entire campus. In addition, without new switches, the College’s ability to add additional functions to the system is limited. This includes the addition of security and virus upgrades necessary to maintain the data system.
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): The North Las Vegas Library renovation is required to bring the building up to current seismic codes. The mechanical renovations in the G building are critical as the fume hood controls are necessary for the safe operation of our science labs. Without properly functioning fume hoods, and the proper exhaust in the rooms, these classes will not be possible.   
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: N/A
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? Yes
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 2020
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? These projects are being driven by: 1) obsolete parts making it difficulty to repair units, 2) continually failing parts, and 3) the need to upgrade the Library to current seismic codes.
