Minor Works - Facility Preservation

40000037

Project Description: 1. What is the problem/opportunity? Identify: priority, underserved people/communities, operating budget savings, public safety improvements & clarifying details. Preservation projects: include information about the current condition of the facility/system. This project forms the first tier of the comprehensive Public Health Laboratories capital plan to modernize and adapt to changing needs. It provides for remodeling and upgrading select areas of existing laboratory spaces to meet shifting needs, technological changes, or building needs (see individual sub-projects). These projects are priorities because of the year to year need to keep the laboratory up to date and in good working condition. 2. What will the request produce or construct (predesign/design of a building, additional space, etc.)? When will the project start/end? Identify whether the project can be phased, and if so, which phase is included in the request. Provide detailed cost backup. This request will ask for as individual sub-projects; A new fusion hood in the ELS wing, new wider doors to the mechanical room with card key, staff lockers in the main hallway, foot pedals for all lab sinks without pedals, and a new lab wide speaker system. These projects will be designed and constructed during the 21-23 biennium and will not be phased. 3. How would the request address the problem or opportunity identified in question 1? What would be the result of not taking action?This request will fund and new fusion hood in ELS which has become a safety concern, foot pedals for all laboratory sinks that have not been upgraded, lockers for staff due to the number of staff at the lab with no place to put personal items, a new lab wide speaker/paging system that is original to the building and is now overloaded and only works in PHL wide paging mode, and create a 4’-0” wide door from the mechanical room into the main hallway so that equipment can be brought into the PHL without breaking it down to a smaller size. Not funding these projects will create a continued build-up of deferred maintenance needs in the future, reducing the lab’s effectiveness and reliability in responding to public health needs, including its ability to support other state, regional, and local health partners 4. What alternatives were explored? Why was the recommended alternative chosen? Be prepared to provide detailed cost backup. If this project has an associated predesign, please summarize the alternatives the predesign considered. Three other minor works projects were looked at for funding, re paving the fire lanes on the west side of the PHL, replacement of the R-wing air handler, and sun louvers on the south side windows of all PHL wings. The projects chosen had a higher immediate priority and the three not chosen can be delayed for a biennium or be included in other projects that commence at a later time. 5. Which clientele would be impacted by the budget request? Where and how many units would be added, people or communities served, etc. Other state, regional, and local health partners could be impacted by this funding as these funds will affect the lab’s effectiveness and reliability in responding to public health needs 6. Does this project or program leverage non-state funding? If yes, How much by source? If the other funding source requires cost share, also include the minimum state (or other) share of project cost allowable and the supporting citation of documentation. The projects will be funded through the State Capital Funds. No federal or other sources of funding are available for the project 7. Describe how this project supports the agency’s strategic master plan or would improve agency performance. Reference feasibility studies, master plans, space programming and other analyses as appropriate. These projects enable the agency to perform better by keeping the lab’s effectiveness and reliability in responding to public health needs and supporting other state, regional, and local health partners at a high level. 8. Does this project include IT-related costs, including hardware, software, cloud based services, contracts, or staff? If yes, attach IT Addendum. There are no IT-related costs related to this project. 9. If the project is linked to the Puget Sound Action Agenda, describe the impacts on the Action Agenda, including expenditure and FTE detail. See Chapter 12, Puget Sound Recovery in the 2021-23 Operating Budget Instructions. No, this project is not linked to the PSAA. 10. How does the project contribute to statewide goals to reduce carbon pollution and/or improve energy efficiency? Please elaborate. None of these minor works projects are energy projects. All energy projects are in the major projects category. 11. Is there additional information you would like decision makers to know when evaluating this request
