USU Fine Arts Complex Facilities Plan

Over the last ten years, a number of reports were prepared and information calculated pertaining to the condition of the buildings and goals for the future. The intent of this exercise was not to revisit or redo past efforts, rather consider that information to inform the current focus of creating a strategic report documenting prioritized master issues and projects, and update it as necessary. This analysis considers and documents how upgrades can be synergistic and make financial and operational sense. A number of essential projects facilitywide have been prioritized and broken down into smaller budget sizes to give the University the greatest amount of flexibility for implementation. Project Summary Sheets were developed for each project, with priority, cost, code implications, and contingency on other projects. Also included were floorplan overlays that show graphically all projects in each building and how these projects overlap. Estimated costs have been included for each project. These costs are estimated construction costs only. Cost tables are included showing an overall cost for all of the master issues as well as broken down costs by building. Additionally, a final cost table showing the potential cost for remodel/upgrade of the entire complex is included. Key considerations as the university moves forward are sequencing of the work to minimize redundant projects and financial implications as well as continued operations during project upgrades. This plan is also intended to aid in fundraising efforts with potential donors so they have a detailed understanding of key issues and potentials.
