ITEM 128-2004-R0905

 

Board of Regents Policy: Physical Plant B Section 1003.7

 

This Authority request is for an amount greater than $150,000, which requires the following additional information:

 

(a) Project Description:

This project will provide approximately 9,000 sq ft of specific bio-safety level laboratory and animal containment space to accommodate research on a variety of zoonotic diseases. Construction will include the general building enclosure and associated mechanical system and bio-hazard containment elements.

 

(b) Cost Estimate and Funding Sources:

C          Estimated Cost

C          Design/Construction Admin

$300,000

C          Construction

$1,950,000

C          Contingency

$250,000

C          Total Estimate

$2,500,000

 

C          Funding Source: This project will be financed with non-state, Facilities and Administrative (F&A) funds recovered from externally funded grants and contracts and non-state funds from VMB endowments.

 

(c) Program served, enrollment data, projected enrollment:

This project will serve existing research programs in the VMB Department.

(Enrollment data is not applicable to this authority request).

 

(d) Space Utilization Data:

The new facility is expected to include approximately 9,000 gross sq ft, comprised of ~30-40% non-assignable space (corridors, mechanical spaces, restrooms, etc.) and ~60% laboratory and lab support spaces.

 

(e) Projected use for available residual space:

(Not applicable to this project)

 

(f) Projected O&M Costs and proposed funding sources:

Annual O&M Costs will likely range from $90k to $125k per year, depending upon actual building configuration, utility consumption, major maintenance reserve, systems complexity and hours of use.

 

MSU will fund this increased O&M responsibility with non-state, Facilities and Administrative (F&A) funds recovered from externally funded grants and contracts. However, this facility will be an integral element of the University’s Research Programs and, as such, the University may eventually seek Legislative support for all or part of these O&M costs.
