    Project Background May Hall was constructed in 1963 and provides double occupancy rooms for 188 residents with

    common restrooms, a study lounge, and recreation facilities. The building is served by a main

    entrance/lobby suite and an apartment for the resident director on the east end of the building.

    The roof and windows were replaced within the past ten years, but the soft broken mortar of

    the exterior masonry requires repair. The fire alarm systems have received periodic upgrades,

    but the building is not protected by sprinklers. Although not required, fire sprinklers are

    considered a standard life safety feature in new residence hall construction and should be added

    to existing residence halls when possible. The resident rooms and common areas have not been

    remodeled since original construction with the exception of the installation of Ethernet and cable

    television connections. Floor restrooms have been recently remodeled, although electric hand

    dryers were not installed at that time.

    May Hall is physically connected to the east end of the Emogene Nelson Center, which will be

    demolished as part of the Falcon Center for Health, Education, and Wellness project. The

    demolition of this attached building will leave the west facade of May Hall exposed to the

    elements. The process of enclosing the exposed structure presents an opportunity to bring the

    building into compliance with current accessibility standards. A new near street level entrance

    would provide basic ADA compliant access into the building mid-way between the basement

    and first floor levels. The building is not accessible, but full accessibility to all areas of the

    building could be easily accomplished with the addition of a two-door, multi-stop elevator.

    Project Description This project renovates and updates 24,148 ASF/37,979 GSF of May Hall and constructs a 1,000

    NASF/1,200 GSF addition to address accessibility deficits. The work will improve residence hall

    amenity spaces, as well as correct current maintenance and infrastructure deficiencies.

    This project will construct an ADA accessible entrance and lobby on the west side of the building

    and provide a 5-stop dual door elevator for accessibility to all floors. The existing lobby on the

    east end of the building will be remodeled into student study space. Several areas in the building

    will be updated including the resident director's apartment, basement restrooms, and student

    recreation areas. Infrastructure will be upgraded throughout the building. The steam heating

    system and the main electrical distribution system will be replaced and a new fire suppression

    system will be installed. Exterior masonry will be tuck-pointed to repair deterioration of the

    building envelope.

    Selective finishes and fixtures in corridors and bathrooms that were not recently improved

    during previous renovations will be updated. Exposed conduits in common corridors will be

    covered, obsolete fire hose cabinets will be removed, and outdated signage will be updated. In

    the restrooms, new hand dryers will be installed and the ceilings will be patched, repaired, and

    re-painted. Upgrades to resident rooms include new finishes, fixtures, and lighting and the

    replacement of existing asbestos-containing floor tile with vinyl floor tile.

    The entire building will be off-line for one year to minimize the project's construction time. There

    is available swing space on the campus to house the displaced residents.

    Scope of Services The A/E will provide design through construction administration services as indicated in the DFD

    Policy and Procedure Manual for Architects/Engineers and Consultants, the Guide for Developing

    Program Statements for Projects Requiring Enumeration, and the DFD Contract for Professional

    Services as directed by DFD at the Design Kickoff meeting. The services may be contracted for in

    multiple contracts or contracts with multiple parts with project-specific review/ approval/

    authorization points in the contract as determined by the needs of the project. Authorization for

    subsequent services will be issued in writing upon satisfactory performance and completion of

    contracted services and deliverables.

    In addition to the requirements for preliminary design through construction in the DFD Policy and

    Procedure Manual for Architects/Engineers and Consultants, the following additions and clarifications

    should be noted:

    The consultant should have access to web-conferencing capabilities that can be initiated by the

    consultant either at the consultants office, or at an institution.

    Note that per the DFD Policy and Procedure Manual for Architects/Engineers and Consultants, the

    following services will not be included in the scope of services:

    Hazardous materials survey, testing, and abatement bid documents will be contracted

    separately based on the demolitions plans prepared by this AE team.

    WEPA compliance actions and document preparation will be contracted separately.
