 Project Description One-Two Sentences
A review of the broad programs/needs for proposed Health and Wellness and Science Buildings to determine most cost effective footprints (and number of stories) for each based upon program functions and cost efficiency. This information will be used to determine the potential for siting two buildings in the location adjacent to the Student Union. Study to include: o Overall campus program implications to the specific siting of a Science Building and/or a Health/Wellness Facility referencing the campus master plan, the Health/Wellness Center consultant's report, and in consultation with university administrators, including the Chancellor's office. o An analysis of cost implications associated with construction related to low/mid/high-rise buildings; the heights of the buildings and the aesthetic implications when considering the topography and adjacent buildings. o Campus standards for siting the buildings (setback, etc.) shall be addressed. o Campus circulation (vehicular, pedestrian, and service) and adjacency issues resultant from either having one or two buildings at that location. o Parking implications in adding an academic building for the sciences to that site while removing lot 19; and a review of potential parking needs in that sector (including a review of the potential need for enlarging the Student Union Deck). It is assumed that those using a Health/Wellness Facility would primarily walk, use the campus shuttle, or use light rail. o Food service and individual building support requirements (accommodating one or both within the site). o A utilities assessment of the sector to include the Student Union Regional Utility Plant (RUP) including existing capacity and potential expansion capacity to support either one building or two buildings on the site.
