Campus:                                Dartmouth

Project Name:                          Priority 1: Cedar Dell

Funding Source:                        University - UMBA/HEFA/Other

Project Location:                      Cedar Dell Residence Halls, Main Campus

Project Type:                          BR


Justification:             Our Cedar Dell Residence Halls are wood-framed apartment-style living quarters that were first occupied
                           in 1988. Over the years mechanical, electrical, and plumbing maintenance problems have been escalating
                           and envelope repairs to roofing and siding are needed to keep water problems in check. A Fall 2006 study
                           by Kaestle Boos, through the UMBA, indicated that repairs could be completed on the current residence
                           facilities that would extend their useful life by 20-25 years.

                                             FY09 Capital Project Description


Campus:                                Dartmouth

Project Name:                          Priority 2: Library Renovations

Funding Source:                        State - G.O. Bonds or Supplemental funds
                                       University - Private Fundraising

Project Location:                      Library, Main Campus

Project Type:                          BR


Justification:             The growth in student population and the changes in the way libraries are used by students and faculty has sparked
                           us to renovate existing space to accommodate growing university archives and special collections and to expand the
                           building to enclose 15-20,000 additional square feet of space below a bridge to the second floor in order to create
                           seminar and team presentation practice space as well as a small internet cafe. It is expected that the costs associated
                           with this work will be significantly offset by private donations to the university.The Library Building was first
                           occupied in 1972. The 34-year-old building is ready for a complete rehabilitation including re-pointing and
                           masonry repairs; replacement of mechanical/electrical/plumbing systems; bathroom upgrades to address
                           deteriorated finishes, fixtures, and current ADA requirements; and, within a few years, elevator rehabilitation and
                           roof replacement. At the same time, the increasing use of computers have increased electrical demand in the
                           building and this change is forcing us to install a larger electric service entrance, additional emergency engine
                           capacity, and increased cooling capacity.

Project Description:   A series of infrastructure contracts to upgrade the Library Facility to current norms has started with some cosmetic
                       work, the replacement of the zoned fire alarm system, the replacement of the emergency diesel engine, and the
                       upgrade of several of the toilet rooms. Initial work also included the construction of Archival space on the
                       Mezzanine level with occupancy projected for the fall of 2008. The funding requested here is planned to continue
                       the program with replacement/upgrade of the existing 35-year old mechanical plant and conversion of the current
                       air conditioning system to a geothermal system in a phased project on a floor-by-floor basis in order to keep the
                       library building in service. This project will also cover the mechanical and cosmetic upgrade of the three cable
                       elevators serving the ground floor and the five above-grade floors; the upgrade of the existing switchboard and the
                       replacement of the transformer to bring more electrical power into the building to serve computers; the completion
                       of the replacement of the wall-to-wall carpeting with new carpet tiles; and the installation of window treatments,
                         of the replacement of the wall-to-wall carpeting with new carpet tiles; and the installation of window treatments,
                         glass film, and storm windows to control solar glare and improve energy efficiency. DCAM is currently doing initial
                         planning work for this series of projects.

                         An Infill Project will add student gathering and meeting space, and will create a more distinctive and accessible
                         entrance. The Infill Project is being managed in conjunction with UMBA and design work is projected to begin in
                         the fall of 2008.

Project Type:                         DM


Justification:           J. Louis Roberts Residence Hall was first occupied in 1972. Chestnut Hall followed in 1973. In 1976
                         Mapleridge and Elmwood Halls were completed. In the ensuing 30 years serious envelope problems
                         (windows, masonry, and roofing) have developed and mechanical/electrical/plumbing systems have
                         deteriorated and often no longer meet occupancy code requirements due to upgrades of the building
                         code and federal ADA legislation.

Project Description:     The work in each residence hall will include roof replacement, window and exterior door replacement,
                         masonry repairs, increasing the electrical service entrance capacity, installation of air conditioning,
                         complete renovation of bathrooms and kitchenettes, installation of sprinklers, suite/elevator/stairwell
                         revisions to meet current code requirements, installation of new flooring/ceilings/wall coverings, and
                         renovations of common areas on first floors.

Project Location:                       SMAST Campus, New Bedford

Project Type:                           NC


Justification: The Division of Marine Fisheries currently occupies inadequate space in several locations in southeastern Massachusetts but h as
               identified funds to contstruct a new 10,000 square foot office building on the same site as our Center for Marine Science on the
               cove in New Bedford in order to improve their working conditions and in order to gain synergies with our research staff and
               research facilities at the same site. Both groups of marine scientists will share lab space and presentation space in the ex isting facility
               and both groups will utilize the existing pier.

                At the same time, our own SMAST group has been growing and will need space for personnel growth. Many of these additional
                people have already been brought into the work group and are currently accommodated in leased space in Fairhaven. The leased
                space is somewhat expensive and inconveniently located inland, away from the main work group and away from access to the ocea n.

Total Est. Project Costs                                              $20,000,000


Project Description:      We are currently starting planning for the new facilities in conjunction with DCAM. The study phase will include
                          consideration of a vertical addition or a horizontal addition to the current building as well as the possibility of construct ing
                          a free-standing second building on the site. All exterior finishes will be chosen with an eye to withstanding a harsh
                          oceanfront environment.

Project Type:                       CO


Justification:         The campus was largely built using the old Massachusetts ADA code in force during the 70's and 80's, but federal
                       ADA legislation is more stringent. This project is designed to address our need to improve ramp angles, install
                       additional handrails, install fire-alarm-activated hold-open devices on corridor smoke-doors, and improve flooring
                       surfaces to make the campus universally accessible. In addition the existing elevated press box at the football field is
                       not accessible to wheelchair users.

Project Description:   The proposed work includes paving or reflooring where tripping hazards have been discovered, installation of hold-
                       open devices on corridor smoke doors, and installation of automatic door openers on all buildings not already so
                       equipped. This work would be pursued using various small contracts to address specific needs. An additional
                       contract would re-construct the elevated press box at the football field and equip it with a lift for reporters and
                       cameramen who are mobility-impaired.

Campus:                                Dartmouth

Project Name:                          Priority 6 -Basic Infrastructure Repairs

Funding Source:                        University - Local Funds
                                       State - G.O. Bonds

Project Location:                      Main Campus, Various Buildings

Project Type:                          DM


Justification:           Academic Buildings range in age from 13 to 35 years old and existing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and envelope
                         systems are coming to the end of their useful lives. Our recently finalized master plan suggested that we would
                         need to spend over $300M in order to address all infrastructure maintenance needs. While the campus has largely
                         maintained or replaced any failing roofs, older masonry is in need of repointing or replacement and sealing.
                         Electrical systems have generally reached capacity due to increasing electrical demand from the growth in computer
                         usage. Mechanical systems have also reached capacity due to the high heat loads involved in computer usage.
                         Older plumbing piping is frequently so deteriorated that it requires replacement. Fire alarm systems, fire
                         suppression systems, and elevators are all due for replacement and/or upgrades.



                        During the first five years of this 10-year plan, the most urgent envelope and MEP repairs and upgrades will be
                                                                                        Associated                            Estimated

Project Description:       This proposal includes funding to address unique infrastructure needs as well as to initiate, continue, or complete
                           infrastructure renewal work across the campus.

                           Unique Infrastructure Work
                           Our sewerage outflow lines are currently being infiltrated by groundwater in various locations causing an average
                           of $250,000 per annum in excess sewerage costs; this funding will investigate the sources of infiltration and
                           waterproof manholes and leaking lines. The current theater lighting system is 35 years old and is no longer fully
                           functional or repairable and this funding is planned to cover the installation of a replacement system. 28 -year-old
                           art studios currently have original finishes and window treatments; this funding is planned to upgrade finishes and
                           built-in casework. At the Tripp Center, we will add egress doors to the gymnasium in order to increase allowable
                           occupancies for commencement, concerts, or other large-scale events.

                           Infrastructure Renewal Completions
                           This funding is planned to complete several sub-categories of campus renewal work: repaving and widening
                           asphaltic pedestrian walkways, repainting and recaulking all window frames, replacement of all original exterior
                           tectum soffits with trowelled-on plaster, replacement and upgrade of HVAC and fume hood systems at SENG,
                           reroofing the last deteriorated roofs on campus at our Dion Building and our School of Marine Science and
                           Technology (SMAST) Building, and renovating the last major atrium on campus in the Dion Building.
                                                          2008-2012
                           Infrastructure Renewal Continuations
                           This funding is planned to further progress in several sub-categories of campus renewal work: repaving our 35
                           year old parking lots (Lot 10); installing solar film and storm windows on all campus windows (Liberal Arts and
                           SENG and Library et al.); replacing exposed aggregate corridor flooring with cleanable, smooth unitary flooring
                           (Liberal Arts and SENG et al.); installing ADA-compliant interior signage and wayfinding (SENG); replacing
                           corridor fire and smoke doors and keeping them on hold-opens tied to the fire alarm system to improve
                           handicapped access (Liberal Arts and SENG et al.), replacing the original zoned fire alarm systems with modern
                           addressable systems reporting via radio to our Public Safety headquarters (Auditorium, Violette, Textile, and
                           Tripp); and bathroom rehabilitations to green, touchless standards (SENG, first floor of Liberal Arts).

                           Infrastructure Renewal Initiations
                           This funding is planned to start sub-categories of campus renewal work in several new areas: replacing the
                           original emergency diesel generators with gas-fired generators of greater capacity to carry important
                           uninterruptible equipment including elevators, research incubators and freezers, and higher priority computer
                           systems (Liberal Arts, SENG, Violette, Tripp); rewiring emergency lighting circuits to meet current code standards
                           as required by electrical system upgrades (Liberal Arts and SENG) (see Priority 19 below); Laboratory Upgrades
                           (this work would be initiated with a series of teaching laboratory rehabilitations in SENG which would include the
                           installation of new epoxy flooring, new casework, new fume hoods, new eyewash/shower stations, new hazmat
                           collection centers, as well as lab-specific freezers, dehumidification, or other specialized built-in equipment); and
                           the first phase of a three phase project to upgrade/replace mechanical systems at our CVPA Building.

                         Most classrooms, labs, studios, and other common areas used by students are located in buildings that are thirty or more years old. Normal
Justification:           wear and tear has taken its toll on our older buildings. Finishes have deteriorated; original steel mesh window curtains hav e been damaged
                         and removed; fixed seating and tables are damaged beyond repair. Teaching pedagogy has changed from the lecture formats of old to more
                         modern group discussion and team-oriented methods of today and this change lessens the functionality of most of our tiered lecture hall
                         environments. Computers and sophisticated audio-visual equipment is now required for the typical classroom. This project is consistent
                         with our Facilities Master Plan Classroom Utilization study which suggested that renovation of our existing classrooms would result in
                         better, more efficient classroom utilization.

                         The campus has embarked on a program to make all general use classrooms technology equipped, to replace seating, flooring and other
                         interior improvements; and to improve lighting and other environmental factors impacting learning. To date, we have successf ully
                         introduced technology to all general use clasrooms, replaced flooring and seating in many, converted most tiered seating clas srooms to more
                         flexible classrooms and repaired and improve various Atria to become accessible study spaces. The funds requested here will a llow us to
                         continue to repair and replace flooring and to replace remaining fixed seating in tiered classrooms.

Project Description:     For classrooms, labs and studios, renovation work will involve replacing fixed seating and refinishing fixed tables, filling in tiered classrooms
                         with light-weight concrete fill to create flat classrooms, installing teaching technology, reflooring, installing new window tre atments, repairing
                         masonry walls or repainting, installing new ceiling grids and lighting in some areas, installing clocks and white boards and pull-down
                         projection screens. Common area corridor upgrades include locker removals, repair of masonry and clerstory windows, replacin g smoke
                         doors, installation of improved lighting, replacement of tectum ceiling tiles, and reflooring with lineoleum or carpeting. C ommon area atria
                         upgrades include reupholstering concrete seating areas, installation of new flooring and lighting and audio-visual equipment for
                         presentations, installation of new window treatments, installation of new furniture and small cafe-style dining centers in selected areas. This
                         work is largely complete on the first floors of our oldest academic buildings, the Liberal Arts Building and the Science and Engineering
                         Building, but needs to be extended to our Center for Visual and Performaing Arts Building as well as smaller academic buildin gs and also to
                         the second floor academic classrooms and studios. These funds are planned to continue our program of upgrading classroom lear ning
                         environments. The work planned will include covering exposed aggregate classroom flooring with unitary materials (epoxy or s heet
                         linoleum) to improve appearance and cleanability and to replace all fixed seating in tiered classrooms with modern ergonomic seating.

                                            FY09 Capital Project Description


Campus:                                Dartmouth

Project Name:                          Priority 8 - Liberal Arts Air Conditioning

Funding Source:                        State - G.O. Bonds

Project Location:                      Liberal Arts Building, Main Campus

Project Type:                          RV


Justification:           The Liberal Arts Building was constructed in 1966 as the first major academic building on the
                         campus. Air conditioning was not installed as an amenity at that time. Since the building is now
                         used throughout the year, air conditioning is seen as a necessity. To address this need, many small
                         window units have been installed in faculty office areas and some administrative centers and
                         computer labs have been provided with small split systems. These stop-gap measures are both
                         unsightly and wasteful of energy. Additionally, this building now has reached maximum electrical
                         usage and the addition of any power-consuming equipment will require an upgrade to the electric
                         service entrance and switchboard additions, emergency engine upgrades, and new feeders and
                         distribution panels.

Project Description:     Since there is no available space to install a chiller and air handling equipment, a geothermal cooling
                         system will be constructed. Conditioned air distribution will utilize existing concrete ducts that are
                         integrated into the structure of the building. The project is planned to be implemented in three
                         phases for each of the three wings of the building. The needed electrical service upgrade must be
                         completed prior to the initiation of this project.

Project Type:                           NC


Justification:           At present Facilities and Auxiliary Services work groups occupy significant amounts of space in various buildings across the campus: Liberal Arts
                         Building (Facilities Shops), Science and Engineering Building, (Facilities Shops), Library (Custodial Services), College of Visual and Performing
                         Arts (Print Shop and Central Mail Distribution Unit), Foster Administration Building (administrative personnel for both Facilities and Auxiliary
                         Services), Residence Halls (Residence Housing Staff). The various groups are shoe-horned in, making normal storage and work activities
                         impossible to carry out. There is no covered storage area for vehicles. The broad distribution of personnel makes managerial oversight awkward.
                         Most importantly, these staff functions are occupying valuable spaces needed for our core academic functions.

                         Additionally, there is only one entrance to the campus. The location of the new facilities building (as determined in the Master Plan) enables the
                         easy creation of a second entrance to the campus. The need for the second campus entrance was identified in both the Master Plan and in the
                         Emergency Response Plan

Project Description:     Initially the plan calls for building two modular buildings (one for garage functions and vehicular and equipment storage, the second for the Print
                         Shop, Mail Distribution Center, Facilities Shops, and administrative units) at the east end of the campus in an area not visible from the main
                         academic buildings and Ring Road but close to the existing steam plant building. The work will include the construction of parking for assigned
                         personnel and a new emergency egress road to Chase Road. The creation of the Chase Road Exit adddresses the serious second egress issues
                         raised in the campus Facilities Master Plan, as well as the campus Emergency Response Plan. The Chase Road Exit construction would entail a new
                         two-lane roadway from the Ring Road to Chase Road on the eastern edge of the campus meeting all Massachusetts Highway Department standards
                         including curbing and lighting. This road would provide access to the proposed Facilities Building site and would also provide a secondary
                         vehicular egress from the campus in case of emergency evacuation of the site. After Auxiliary Services and Facilities functions are moved into the
                         new building, the spaces they have vacated will be retrofit for use by academic units for storage, meeting rooms or offices.

                                             FY09 Capital Project Description


Campus:                                Dartmouth

Project Name:                          Priority 11 - Roadway Improvements

Funding Source:                        State - G.O. Bonds or Supplemental funds

Project Location:                      Main Campus

Project Type:                          DM


Justification:         Original asphaltic pavements are now approximately 35 years old and are deteriorated beyond
                       possible repair. This project addresses a rehabilitation of the ring road. The campus population
                       has grown significantly over the years and many students, faculty, and staff use the edges of the
                       ring road for biking, jogging, or walking but this creates potential safety conflicts with vehicular
                       traffic. The heavy roadway edge traffic also kills plantings and creates an unkempt appearance.
                       Finally, the roadway is underlit and this creates potential security problems for nighttime users.




                     This project would re-pave all original asphalt for parking lots and pedestrian walkways that have
                                                                                     Associated Campus Estimated

Project Description: The rehabilitation of the existing ring road would re-pave the roadway, install an inner ring of
                     lighting to double the illumination on the roadway, create several new pedestrian crossings with
                     pavement warning lights and flashing signals activated by pedestrian movement, create a new
                     sidewalk and bikepath for the use of pedestrians and cyclists, and install curbing to keep the
                     pedestrian and vehicular traffic flows safely separated.

Project Name:                          Priority 12 - Energy/Water Savings Project

Funding Source:                        University - UMBA/HEFA/Other

Project Location:                      Main Campus

Project Type:                          O


Justification:           Most of the original buildings on campus were designed just prior to the energy crisis of the 1970's and the
                         buildings are therefore not very energy efficient. At the same time, plumbing fixtures of this era used much
                         more water than their current counterparts. Additionally, since energy-savings technology like Energy
                         Management Systems, Variable Frequency Drives, and thermopane glass were not available at the time of
                         construction, the campus is poorly equipped to make significant improvements without a substantial infusion of
                         funds.

Project Description:     We propose to work with the Department of Capital Asset Management to let an Energy and Water
                         Conservation Performance Contract. While the technical details of such a contract cannot be known prior to
                         receipt of contractor proposals, it is expected that the work will include at least a co -generation plant, a centrally-
                         monitored energy management system including new mechanical and electrical actuating devices and sensors,
                         VFDs, motion-detector activated lighting, water-saving plumbing fixtures, and perhaps a plan to utilize
                         rainwater for non-potable water sources. If economically attractive, window modification or replacement might
                         also be possible.

Project Location:                     Steam Plant, Main Campus

Project Type:                         DM


Justification:          The existing steam plant was brought on line in 1966 with three large and one small boiler and a direct buried
                        steam supply and condensate return system. All insulated equipment is covered in asbestos-containing
                        material. The steam supply lines and the condensate return lines were poorly welded and have been failing at
                        an accelerated pace. The original boiler controls can no longer be repaired due to unavailability of parts.
                        One of the two original 40,000 gallon fuel tanks has developed a leak and cannot be used.

Project Description:   This funding is planned to cover the replacement of the existing diesel emergency engine, the separation of
                       emergency lighting circuits necessitated by the work outlined in Priority 14, renovation of the bathrooms to
                       meet current green, touchless standards, and the first phase of a five phase plan to upgrade our high-pressure
                       steam plant.

                       While we remove and replace ACM as needed for repairs and to correct for friable asbestos releases, the first
                       part of our plan would remove all asbestos-containing insulation from the building in a systematic way.

                       We have also repaired all steam leaks in the distribution system and have replaced the failed main condensate
                       return line as well as the adjacent steam supply line up to the main campus. Thus at present, no urgent work
                       is needed on the steam distribution system, but it may safely be predicted that additional leaks will occur in the
                       next five years so we plan to spend some significant monies to replace these lines when the failures occur.

                       Several of the boilers have in the recent past been upgraded and this work is planned to be completed in the
                       coming year but controls need complete replacement due to unavailability of parts and the fire box on one of
                       the boilers has deteriorated to the point where a rebuilding is required.

                       Proposed funding would also replace the leaking underground fuel storage tank so that redundant fuel sources
                         Proposed funding would also replace the leaking underground fuel storage tank so that redundant fuel sources
                         would be available at all times.

Justification:           All transformers on campus were originally cooled using a PCB coolant. When required by law to stop using PCB coolants, all
                         dormitory transformers were removed and new PCB-free transformers were installed. But in academic buildings, the old
                         transformers were flushed and refilled with PCB-free coolant. We have found through our annual testing that PCB levels continue
                         to creep upwards over time and we intermittently have to re-flush and re-fill the academic building transformers. At the same time,
                         our growth and our increased use of technology has led to an increased demand for electricity in our academic buildings. This
                         project will allow us to address both of problems.

Project Description:       As current plans to replace all high-voltage feeders are implemented this coming year, it will be possible to increase electrical
                           power capacity in our most electrically overloaded buildings. Each of these upgrades will involve the installation of a new, larger
                           transformer and a new, larger main disconnect switch in a new switchboard section. This work will replace transformers that
                           once contained PCB-coolant with completely clean transformers and will provide for additional power in buildings which
                           currently have run out of electrical capacity completely. This work will be required in order to install air conditioning in the
                           Liberal Arts Building, and to provide functional growth in the SENG and Steam Plant buildings as we rehabilitate their
                           mechanical systems.

Justification:           Elevators on the main campus except for our newest buildings range in age from 12 to 40 years old.
                         They were all designed to comply with the ADA code in effect at the time they were built but federal
                         ADA legislation has provided additional guidance and not all of our elevators are in complete
                         conformance with the stricter federal requirements. In addition all of the academic building elevators
                         utilize electromechanical technology and have deteriorating cab interiors except for the elevators
                         installed during the last 5 years. Some elevators have not been upgraded for Fireman's Recall function
                         and most elevators will not be sent to the nearest floor in the event of a power outage.

Campus:                               Dartmouth

Project Name:                         Priority 16 - Asbestos Removal

Funding Source:                       University - Local Funds

Project Location:                     Academic Buildings, Main Campus

Project Type:                         CO


Justification:           Most of the academic buildings were built in a time frame when asbestos was widely used to insulate
                         mechanical plant systems so asbestos-containing materials exist throughout most buildings. The campus
                         continues to routinely remove asbestos-containing materials used on mechanical systems, flooring, and
                         finishes.



                     The campus will continue to abate small amounts of asbestos as needed to complete repair work or address
                                                                                                                  Estimated

Total Est. Project Costs                                           $400,000


Project Description:     The campus will continue to abate small amounts of asbestos as needed to complete repair work or address
                         releases of friable asbestos but a more systematic, larger scale abatement process was begun two years ago.
                         This funding would remove all asbestos containing materials from our highest priority residence halls and
                         academic buildings.

Justification:           The existing facilities were built in 1971 and are no longer adequate for our growing student population. Additionally
                         they are awkwardly arranged and require visitors to pass through locker rooms or go outside and around the building
                         to get from one side of the building to the other.




                                                                                                  Associated               Estimated

Project Description:     The project is planned to reprogram and reconfigure the existing locker rooms and training rooms to accommodate
                         more students and to provide a new passage through the building so that visitors can get from the lobbies and gym to
                         the swimming pool without passing through one of the locker rooms.

Project Type:                         DM


Justification:           Academic Buildings range in age from 12 to 34 years old and existing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and envelope systems ar e coming to
                         the end of their useful lives. Our recently finalized master plan suggested that we would need to spend over $300M in order to address all
                         infrastructure maintenance needs. While the campus has largely maintained or replaced any failing roofs, older masonry is in need of
                         repointing or replacement and sealing. Electrical systems have generally reached capacity due to increasing electrical deman d from the
                         growth in computer usage. Mechanical systems have also reached capacity due to the high heat loads involved in computer usag e. Older
                         plumbing piping is frequently so deteriorated that it requires replacement. Fire alarm systems, fire suppression systems, an d elevators are all
                         due for replacement and/or upgrades.

Justification:           The Fitness Center Addition, built about 8 years ago, has proven to be extremely popular with
                         students and is heavily used by all members of the UMD community to the point where it is
                         frequently too crowded and customers need to be turned away.

Project Type:                          BR


Justification:           The campus master plan recommends the construction of additions to the Campus Center
                         Building to accommodate the growing needs of our larger student population. Many work units
                         serving students are scattered in classroom buildings or the Foster Administration Building.
                         Some additional space recommended in the master plan would add to the building on the east
                         side to accommodate student organizations that cannot currently be assigned dedicated space and
                         to centralize class registration, student counseling, and other student -oriented functions in one
                         building. Other additional space recommended in the master plan would add to the building on
                         the west side to accommodate additional dining room space.

Project Description:      The construction would add a one bay layer of building to both the east and west sides of the
                          building and reprogram and reconfigure the internal space allocations. It is contemplated that the
                          new walls will primarily be an energy-efficient thermopane glass system so as to preserve much of
                          the original architecture of the building.

Justification:           At present, Admissions occupies academic building space that is not highly visible to visitors but would be very useful for e xpansion of
                         nearby academic units. Campus Police occupy some space in residence halls and all administrative space in the steam plant bu ilding on the
                         eastern end of the ring road. This situation is not ideal in terms of force management or Public Safety's ability to monitor traffic in and out

                     placed building is planned to reflect architectural standards that are compatible with the cast -in-place concrete architecture of the main
                     campus. After Admissions and Campus Police move into the new building, retrofit of the vacated spaces in the Auditorium Addi tion and
                     the Steam Plant Building will be completed for the use of the academic community or the Steam Plant and future co -generation plant

Project Name:                         Priority 33: Renovation Campus Auditorium

Funding Source:                       State - G.O. Bonds or Supplemental funds

Project Location:                     Auditorium

Project Type:                         RV


Justification:           The existing auditorium has poor acoustics, poor lines of sight, and poor lighting. Due to cost-cutting during the
                         original design, the auditorium room was truncated and three classrooms were installed in the balcony areas. The
                         balcony classrooms are used but do not provide suitable acoustics or lighting for a classroom setting.




                                                                                                             Campus    Estimated

Project Description: The project would involve a complete revamp of lighting in the building and would remove the three classrooms,
                     reconfigure balconies and add acoustic treatment to improve conditions for presenting plays and other artistic
                     performances.

Project Description:      This project will be undertaken after the additions/alterations to the Resident Dining Hall, the Campus
                          Center, and the Auditorium are completed. At that time it will be possible to design a roadway with some
                          attractive pedestrian space and plantings that will culminate in one of the facades of the renovated buildings
                          in a more attractive manner.
