III. Presentation on Planning for Science Buildings at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

Provost Reichardt will introduce the team involved in the planning for science buildings at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

IV. Full Board Consent Agenda

A. Approval of Project for UAA Ecosystem/Biomedical Health Facility - Reference 2

BACKGROUND
The University of Alaska system is currently exploring the development of a number of instructional science and research facilities to meet the demand for science education in the State of Alaska. Growth in the sciences is solidly aligned with the university's mission to inspire learning and enrich Alaska, the nation, and the world through teaching, research, creativity, and service. An Integrated Science Facility, focused on providing core science instruction for UAA students in all disciplines, is planned for Anchorage and estimated to open in 2006.

Existing UAA science facilities in the Beatrice McDonald Building, located (see map at Attachment C of Reference 2) on the west campus, and the existing Science Building, located on the east campus, have not been expanded since the mid-1970s. Enrollments today and those projected in the next three-five years show increasing demand for course delivery to science majors and non-majors (see Attachment A of Reference 2). The instructional spaces that exist today are overbooked and overcrowded. These labs are not sufficient in number or modernity for students to complete in a timely manner the core science courses that are required for degree completion for all fields of study.

In advance of building and opening a new science facility in 2006, UAA has developed a 2-part interim strategy that directly addresses the shortfalls in instructional space for science course delivery and provides for the faculty who will deliver the expanded course offerings. Part One involves the Beatrice McDonald Building. Part Two is this project.

Part One involves expanding the number of instructional labs available for core courses in the lower division (primarily freshman and sophomore students). With capital funding received in FY01 for the Beatrice McDonald Building, the campus is planning to develop five new instructional labs as follows:

In November 2000, the Board of Regents approved the Beatrice McDonald Building Deferred Maintenance/Major Repair/Renovation Project at $764,500. The current plans call for utilizing this amount plus $10,500 savings from other projects approved at that November meeting. Review and approval for this project's schematic design by the vice president for finance, with 3-day advance notice to the chair of the Facilities and Land Management Committee is anticipated in March 2002. Construction of this Part One will begin in May 2002 and be completed by August 2002 in time for the beginning of the fall 2002 semester.

PROJECT SCOPE
Part Two of the strategy is the UAA Ecosystem/Biomedical Health Facility project that involves creating instructional research space for faculty to deliver course sections to upper division students (primarily juniors, seniors, and graduate students). The faculty members who will be assigned to the new facility, their course assignments, and areas of research concentration are listed in Attachment B of Reference 2.

This project is tied to a number of UA and campus initiatives. Addressing interim science program needs is key to recruitment and retention of students and quality science faculty. Thirty percent (30%) of the UA Scholars attending the Anchorage campus who have declared majors have elected to major in the sciences. Adequate facilities are essential to meet their educational requirements. The project also addresses the faculty and space commitments associated with federal funding for the EPSCoR and BRIN programs.

The UAA Ecosystem/Biomedical Health Facility will be shared between ecosystems and biomedical faculty, providing space for experiential learning and training where students receive instruction and work side-by-side with faculty, participating together in instructional research.

The selected site for this project is shown on Attachment C of Reference 2 north of the campus between Scoter Lane and Goose Lake. It is an undeveloped wooded site bordered by wetlands, an excellent match with the intended programmatic functions of the building. The proposed use of the site is consistent with the academic campus core zoning identified in the 1990 UAA master plan.

This project is to be designed in two parts. Part 2-A (the base bid) is projected at approximately 8,200 gsf featuring instructional laboratories, shared lab support spaces, offices, and building circulation spaces expected to have a total project cost of $2.8 million. As part of this project, Part 2-B will be designed to include approximately 6,500 square feet of additional biomedical laboratories, lab support spaces, and offices, expected to add $2.0 million to the total project cost if concurrently awarded, and will be bid as an alternate pending identification of funding. The university has submitted an NIH grant proposal as potential funding for Part 2-B. Notification of grant award status will be in September 2002.

The scope of work to be performed under this project approval will be professional services, including, but not limited to the following tasks:
· Site survey
· Soils testing
· Building programming for 2-A and 2-B
· Identification of equipment and case goods for 2-A and 2-B
· Concept design for 2-A and 2-B
· Cost estimates for 2-A and 2-B

Construction of Part 2-A is critical to addressing science course delivery and space issues for the 2002-03 academic year. Space vacated by current faculty members relocating to the Ecosystem/Biomedical Health Facility will be back-filled by new faculty hires, biomedical program expansion, and development of additional science instructional lab space in the existing Science Building. As part of the overall science facilities planning effort, the College of Arts and Sciences administration and UAA facilities staffs are currently preparing a detailed reallocation plan and cost estimate for any minor renovations of vacated Science Building spaces. There are no funds currently available to fund work to be identified by that effort.

When the concept design is accepted, program finalized, space reallocation plan completed, and the budget solidified, the project's schematic design will be presented to the committee for review and approval.

FUNDING 
Funding for this project includes $100,000 that the University of Alaska Foundation provided for science planning and the potential reappropriation of $2.75 million (or an FY03 appropriation of that amount). The total project budget for the UAA Ecosystem\Biomedical Health Facility is $4.85 million, $2.85 is currently available to fully fund Part 2-A. See one page budget in Attachment D of Reference 2.

SCHEDULE
Project Approval - February 13, 2002
Schematic Approval - March 7-8, 2002
Bid Project - May 2002
Complete Construction - January 2003

The President recommends that:

MOTION

"As required by Board of Regents' Policy 05.12.04.A.1, the Finance & Audit and Facilities & Land Management Committees recommend that the Board of Regents approve the UAA Ecosystem/Biomedical Health Facility project as presented at $4.85 million, subject to the availability of funding as determined by Vice President Beedle. This motion is effective February 13, 2002."

B. Approval of Increased Spending Authority for the University of Alaska Fairbanks SFOS Facility at Lena Point

Since 1996, UAF has been participating in the planning of a combination classroom/research lab facility located on the same site as a NOAA office/research facility at Lena Point, Alaska. In June 1998, the Board of Regents authorized up to $1.7 million for the "planning, design, site acquisition and development and initial construction" of the facility. The source of funds was the $1.4 million balance from transferred bond proceeds, plus accrued interest, and, to the extent interest failed to accrue prior to expenditure, direct funding from the Natural Resources Fund. Interest earnings have accrued as expected.

NOAA and UA entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the project in July 2000. In June 1998, ECI Hyer was selected as the consultant and the schematic design for the UAF facility was completed in December 2000. UAF also participated in the planning and design of utilities that will be built by NOAA for UAF's use.

NOAA is planning to advertise for bids for their facility in February 2002. In accordance with the terms of the MOA, funding for the UAF portion of NOAA's project must be supplied in advance of the obligation.

PROJECT SCOPE
The schematic design for the UAF facility has been completed. The facility is 41,500 square feet. It consists of a 37,400 square foot main office/lab building and 4,100 square foot outdoor lab and storage space. The key sub consultants on the ECI Hyer team are NBBJ (laboratory planning), Peratrovich, Nottingham and Drage, Inc. (civil engineering), and PDC Consulting Engineers, Inc. (electrical and mechanical engineering).

The scope of work to be constructed by NOAA for the benefit of the future UAF facility is the following: filtered seawater, unfiltered seawater, seawater disposal, potable water, and wastewater disposal. NOAA is constructing an on-site wastewater treatment facility. In addition to the utility work, a bid alternate will be included in the NOAA bid package that would perform rock excavation (i.e. blasting) for the UAF building. It is desirable for UAF to perform this work simultaneously with NOAA to prevent disruption or possible damage of the NOAA facility at a later date.

To date, UAF has expended approximately $730,000 on the schematic design, project management, and design of shared utility systems. The cost of construction of the shared utility systems is estimated at approximately $900,000. UAF is in the process of transferring to NOAA the $900,000 for shared utility systems per the MOA. This expends all except $70,000 of the original planning and initial construction funds authorized by the board.

The cost of site preparation is estimated at $500,000 and construction contingency at $140,000. In addition to the $640,000 indicated above, UAF will need approximately $230,000 for additional project design and project management to oversee the utility and site work. This equates to a total expenditure amount of $2.5 million. Vice President Beedle will explain the sources of funds for these expenditures.

$18.0 million for completion of the UAF facility has been requested in the UA FY03 Capital Request.

The President recommends that:

MOTION

"The Finance & Audit and Facilities & Land Management Committees recommend that the Board of Regents authorize the expenditures for this project to be increased from $1.7 million to $2.5 million as presented, subject to availability of funds as determined by Vice President Beedle. This motion is effective February 13, 2002."

C. Approval of Project and Schematic Design (Design-Build) for the University of Alaska Fairbanks West Ridge Research Building - Reference 3

BACKGROUND
UAF's external research funding has increased from $58.7 million to $86.7 million over the last three years. UAF does not have adequate space to meet the needs of this substantial increase in research activity. While the UAF Biological and Computational Sciences Facility will meet the long-term space needs, it will not be on line for several years and numerous expanding programs are in immediate need of space. The West Ridge Research Building project will construct the shell of a research/laboratory facility to be located on the West Ridge of the UAF Campus. The site location for this building has been fully reviewed with the Master Planning Committee and is in compliance with the new Master Plan 2002, which is in the final stage of completion.

The West Ridge Research Building will provide laboratories and office space for current and immediately anticipated grant funded research. The programs that have committed to occupying this facility are:

--Nanosensor Technology (PSA, NT)
--Special Neuroscience Research Program (SNRP)
--Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (BRIN)
--Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE)

In addition, the Geophysical Institute has indicated a very strong desire to occupy space in this building if there is sufficient space available.

PROJECT SCOPE
In efforts to meet the immediate need, it is anticipated that the university would develop a design-build design document that would define the needs and requirements of a 30,000 - 40,000 square foot facility. The facility would be utilitarian in nature and built to anticipate a useful life for laboratories of approximately 20-25 years. It is envisioned to be of light steel frame construction, with a flat membrane roof to accommodate future roof penetrations and service access.

The outside envelope would be an insulated sandwich panel with a concrete and masonry wainscot. The construction of this project includes site work, site utilities (connected to Irving Complex primary systems via Irving Annex and/or direct buried utilities) and communications, lower floor toilets, stairs, one-hour firewalls, sprinkler system, building access doors, and operable insulated exterior PVC window sashes.

The building would accommodate laboratory bays, with interior buildout being completed (lab benches, fume hoods, office interiors, and needed services) with funding provided by the specific program grantees. The design-build contract would require completion of the exterior shell by January 2003.

In the long term, this type of facility could easily transition into a field staging facility at the end of the 20-25-year period, when it may be deemed unsuitable for laboratory use. Field staging areas on campus are critically needed spaces, the expenses for which are recovered through cost reimbursement, and would greatly impact our ability to use existing spaces within our 50-year facilities to the most appropriate and effective use.

Because this project is proposed to be completed with "design-build" techniques, there will be no "schematic design" to review and approve.

CONSULTANT
Bezek Durst Seiser, a consulting firm in Anchorage, developed the preliminary scoping documents for this project, under UAF's term consultant contract, and would develop the design-build RFP package, also under UAF's term consultant contract.

FUNDING
The total project cost for the shell is anticipated to be $6,000,000. Buildout of the labs and office finishes is expected to add $8.0 million to that cost. The costs associated with developing the RFP for a design-build West Ridge Research Building and related site investigation is proposed to be funded by transferred bond proceeds associated with Series I General Revenue Bond (see next agenda item) at an estimated cost of $160,000. The administration is evaluating various alternative funding scenarios for the construction of the shell.

SCHEDULE
Project and Schematic Approval - March 2002
Design-Build RFP - April 2002
Construction of Shell Complete - January 2003
Buildout with Funds from Research Grantees - December 2003

The President recommends that:

MOTION

"The Finance & Audit and Facilities & Land Management Committees authorize the administration to proceed with the development of a design-build RFP for the West Ridge Research Building as presented, subject to the availability of funding as determined by Vice President Beedle and as required by Regents' Policy 05.12.04 A & C, and recommend that the Board of Regents approve the project and schematic design (design-build) for the West Ridge Research Building, and authorize the university administration to award contracts not to exceed a total project cost of $14,000,000, subject to Board of Regents' approval of the plan to fund all other construction-related costs. This motion is effective February 13, 2002."

D. Approval of Projects and Expenditure of Funds for Improving Science Facilities and Projects at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

BACKGROUND
As discussed earlier with the committee and the regents, President Hamilton authorized accelerated planning efforts for science facilities last spring, utilizing funding provided by the University Foundation. Much progress has been made, and in December 2001, the board approved the use of $1.3 million of the $2.5 million in Series I Bond Proceeds and related third-party reimbursements for design and development of construction documents for a utilidor extension, system piping modification, cooling pipe extensions, and other infrastructure related to the Biological and Computational Science Facility. Significant savings have been realized in that effort, and additional cash availability will result if the cooling plant design is delayed until later in the construction sequence. The general science planning has identified several immediate needs that, if accelerated, would maintain UAF's research momentum and position the campus to better meet its immediate science research space needs.

The proposed expenditure plan will enable UAF to move forward with meeting the urgent space needs as follows:

Project Title December Proposal Revised Project Cost Utilidoor extension design

Vice President Beedle will work with the campus to identify alternative funding to ensure that the West Ridge Research Building design-build package and other essential projects proceed at a responsible pace pending Board of Regents' approval of the expenditure plan.

The President recommends that:

MOTION

"The Finance & Audit and Facilities & Land Management Committees approve, subject to the availability of funds as determined by Vice President Beedle, the UAF Arctic Health Research Building Sprinklers Phase I Project at a total project cost of $1.5 million, and the UAF Revitalization of the Old MIRL Lab Project at a total project cost of $815,000 as presented, and recommends that the Board of Regents approve as presented the expenditure plan for Series I Bond Proceeds and related third-party reimbursements. This motion is effective February 13, 2002."

E. Approval of Schematic Design for the University of Alaska Fairbanks Bristol Bay Classroom Addition - Reference 4

BACKGROUND
The Bristol Bay Campus, located in Dillingham, is one of six campuses in the College of Rural Alaska. The Bristol Bay Campus is the source for post-secondary academic and vocational education delivered by distance and local courses to 33 Bristol Bay communities. It is a non-residential campus attended by 600 students from the region.

The Bristol Bay Campus consists of a single story facility that is over 4,400 square feet in size. The facility supports administrative and educational space. The existing facility has three classrooms, computer lab, offices, storage, and other support spaces. The facility is overcrowded and the campus has made multi-function use out of most of the spaces. In addition, the Bristol Bay campus has 2,600 square feet in off-campus leased space that consists of offices, classrooms, and labs.

PROJECT SCOPE
The scope of this project is to construct an addition to the existing facility, which includes a new administrative area, student registration area, faculty offices, and an independent learning area. The new and existing facility will be made handicap accessible and a clerestory window area will bring natural light into the faculty and learning areas. Interior finishes will consist of painted walls, carpet or tile on the floors, and acoustical ceiling panels. The exterior of the new space will match the vinyl siding of the existing structure. The additive alternate number one scope of work will incorporate constructing a new vocational education laboratory, additive alternate number two scope of work will enlarge the parking area, and additive alternate number three scope of work will provide display cases, coat hooks, and window blinds. The estimated construction cost for the additive alternates is $500,000.

CONSULTANT
The Anchorage firm of McCool Carlson Green was selected as the design consultant utilizing the formal UAF consultant selection process.

FUNDING
Funding for this project has been provided from the State of Alaska FY02 Capital Appropriation in the amount of $1,425,000. In an effort to maximize the effect of this long awaited appropriation, UAF is committed to contributing additional funds from both FY02 and FY03 operating budgets, for a total of $1.85 million. The administration is working to identify additional sources of funding.
