Facility Needs Summary

1. Needs Identified in Prior Assessments
   1. Athletics Facility Master Plan
   2. Differed Maintenance Schedule
2. Site Development
   1. Parking, Drop-off, Service & Delivery
       1. Service is provided with a dedicated curb cut and drive.
       2. Staff have separate parking lot along Crest.
       3. Drop off at main entrance is difficult. Tendency is for cars to stop before the end of the queue – at the front entrance. Accessible parking stalls forced removal of several spaces. Providing an additional curb cut directly onto Wells Ave, rather than Noble, would ease congestion
   2. Site Security & Access Control
       1. Campus is relatively secure, although there are instances where fencing that is close to roof eaves on original buildings.
   3. Utility Services, Grading, Drainage, & Landscaping
       1. Grass areas overall appear to be overwatered and/or poorly drained. Many areas on campus are muddy and soggy while others are parched and dying. Irrigation system requires major overhaul.
       2. Irrigation caused flooding of bike rack area and across pavement in main quad area and hardcourt play areas. Outside Rom 24 sand bag are completely deteriorated, so water can again drain to doorways and exterior walls.
       3. Flooding at West side of Amphitheater.
       4. IN many locations catch basins are not at the local low point for drainage, generating flooding.
       5. Large trees on campus drop large branches, require pruning.
   4. PE Fields, Hardcourts and Grounds
       1. Basketball and Tennis courts in disrepair, require resurfacing and new equipment.
       2. Potential to enhance cross country running track up the slope at the rear of the field area, currently used as such.
3. Facilities
   1. Building Envelope
       1. Campus is well cared for, Exterior of original buildings require painting.
       2. Original window systems should be replaced.
       3. Doors at two-story classrooms building have issues, appear to be from direct sun exposure warping doors and frames.
       4. Floor damage in Rm 54 from past plumbing leaks.
       5. Original Classroom buildings have utility closet that are frequent source of plumbing leaks.
       6. Covered walkways connect original buildings but do not connect to newer buildings. Covered walkways are holding a large amount of conduits. No structural deflection were observed, but recommend structural engineering review of load. Walkways were not designed to carry large conduits.
       7. All Covered walkways require paint.
       8. Wasps in Gym and Birds in overhangs of 2-story classroom building.
   2. Building Systems & Equipment
       1. Mechanical system needs updating throughout original buildings
       2. AC in Rm 84 not working
       3. Mens Staff Restroom exhaust not working. Staff Restroom in separate building.
   3. Interior FF&E
       1. Original Buildings require Finish upgrades throughout.
       2. Casework in two-story building awkward and inefficient.

More extensive renovation of spaces to include all minor modernization work with additional renovation/reconfiguration or adaptive reuse of spaces to accommodate new/different uses. The additional level of work beyond minor modernization may include the following:

  • Demolition of interior spaces, systems, equipment.
  • Reconstruction of interior spaces to accommodate new program needs.
  • Replacement of doors and windows as necessary.
  • Up-grade of building structural systems impacted by the reconfiguration of spaces (excluding AB300 reconstruction or building-wide seismic up-grades).
  • Reconstruction or replacement of building systems.
New Construction

Scope addresses all construction that increases the building SF of the campus.  These include the following:

  • Construction of stand-alone buildings, shade structures or other major structures not otherwise listed in Site Improvements.
  • Expansion of existing buildings.
Site Improvements

Scope addresses renovation and expansion of playgrounds, fields, parking lots, and site entry enhancements including the following general areas of work:

  • Demolition of existing site improvements, surface and subsurface materials.
  • Repair/replacement of utility infrastructure.
  • Regrading and drainage improvements
  • Repair or replacement of landscaping and irrigation
  • Repair or replacement of paving, flatwork, and play surfacing.
  • Access and path of travel improvements for ADA compliance.
