North Dakota State University, April 30, 2015 Authorize NDSU to proceed with the Renovation of Architecture and Landscape Architecture Building at an estimated cost of $2,500,000 funded from FY14 appropriated capital project designated reserves per SBHE policy 810.1; further, authorize NDSU to rename the building from Architecture and Landscape Architecture to Engineering. Project Description Built in 1964, this building was home to Architecture and Landscape Architecture. In 2004, Renaissance Hall came on line and in 2008, Klai Hall was renovated, which allowed the Architecture and Landscape Architecture department to relocate into those two buildings. This was a much needed growth requirement relocation for Architecture but it also provided needed space for the College of Engineering in the building. Phase IB of the April 2014 NDSU College of Engineering Master Plan included renovation of Architecture Hall. The building will undergo a major mechanical system replacement and comprehensive renovation. HVAC systems are limited and will be upgraded and centralized to maximize efficiency. This project will include the removal of an unused interior hallway to expand and improve the Construction Management Engineering (CME) department. The renovation of the building will include upgrades of the existing toilet facilities to meet required fixture count and accessibility requirements. Graduate Assistant work space will be reconfigured to optimize space on the second floor. Finishes will be upgraded throughout the building. The building will meet fire protection code and be fully sprinkled. Lab space will be constructed for the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IME) on the second floor. IME Advanced Manufacturing Lab – Room 120 of the first floor of the existing Architecture building – is already being used as the Additive Manufacturing Lab of the Industrial Manufacturing Engineering (IME) Department. The current space is overcrowded. The goal is to move some of the functions out of this space and reconfigure the space to better facilitate research and instruction and provide space for two additional graduate students. Proposed work would add research benches, instructional furniture, and mechanical services. The department also intends to add equipment to enhance their research capabilities. Consistency with Campus Facility Master Plan and Budget The Architecture Building was part of the #2 ranked State Funded project in the 2010 NDSU Master Plan but was not funded. In 2013-14, NDSU completed a Master Plan for the College of Engineering that listed renovating and repurposing this building as part of the first phase.
