The meeting was called to order at 5:04 p.m. by Mr. Mallery.
A tour was conducted of the areas of the College to be
discussed on the agenda.
FY2016 RAMP SUBMITTAL
The current ICCB RAMP includes a
plan to renovate Jacobs Library in Building C and to build an addition to and
renovate the fitness center in Building G.
This project has been on the ICCB approved project list at No. 31 since
FY2009. Since then changes have occurred
in technology, students’ study habits, and enrollments. There have been many discussions about
splitting the RAMP into two projects.
During FY2015 work will begin on the 2016 Facilities Master Plan and
facility needs will be reassessed.
Discussions will take place with the Facilities Committee and a new RAMP
could be submitted at a later date. The
administration recommended not submitting a RAMP project for FY2016 and sending
a letter to ICCB to this affect.
POTENTIAL PROTECTION, HEALTH & SAFETY (PHS) PROJECTS
A list of facility projects
divided into three categories – Protection, Health & Safety, Capital
Projects, and Maintenance. The
Operations Committee prioritized the projects and recommended the following be
considered for the 2014 tax levy:
Building C Plumbing (including sewer lines Building C-G) $500,000
Access Card Readers 200,000
Chiller Replacement 600,000
Lighting Replacement in LRC-B and LRC-A (Library) 200,000
Carpeting – Culture Centre 50,000
sewer lines have aged and are cracking.
Building C is the only building that the sewer lines have not been
replaced. The lines are currently cast
iron and cast iron is being recommended in the $500,000 price range.
the card readers were upgraded, technology was installed in seminar rooms and access
to these rooms is needed by faculty. G4S
security has been opening the rooms when needed. Currently, faculty only have
keys for their offices and keys to seminar rooms would compromise security,
thus, the need for additional card readers.
College has six chillers and the chiller in Building A has been replaced. The administration recommended replacing
another chiller. The Building C chiller
is located behind the link area where the drainage and restoration project
(agenda item 6) is being recommended. It
would be a good time to replace the chiller in this area at the same time the
area is being cleaned up, but this chiller is the newest of the five. Mr. Mallery suggested tying the chiller to
the geothermal for the Cultural Centre heating unit. The administration will look into this
lighting in LRC-B and LRC-A is outdated and replacement bulbs are no longer
available. This project would involve
replacing T12 with T8 light bulbs, which are more energy efficient. The current voltage is enough to handle the
computers and the new lighting. During the tour of LRC-A (Library), the
Committee also discussed the location of a new ADA accessible elevator
(southeast corner of the Library) which would be a project at a future date.
carpeting in the Cultural Centre is in poor condition and needs to be replaced.
was consensus among the Committee with the recommended PHS projects, as
DRAINAGE AND RESTORATION – LINK AREA
the spring of 2103 water pooling from the CTC building seeped into the server
room. As an emergency repair, drain tile
was attached to the downspouts on the north side of the link area where the
HVAC equipment is located to divert the water away from the buildings. This temporary solution has worked but is not
attractive. The administration is
looking for a permanent solution. The whole
area will be investigated and if the scope is larger than anticipated, the
administration will bring this project back to the Board. If the cost estimate is reasonable, the
administration will move forward to seek bids.
CONSTRUCTION OF ADA-ONLY PARKING LOT
staff, and students have expressed a need for close, convenient parking for
persons with disabilities. The campus is
in compliance with the required number of ADA parking spaces, but none of the
spaces are close to any buildings. After
reviewing a number of areas with Chamlin & Associates, the area south east
of the CTC building was selected.
Chamlin provided a drawing of the area which included 18 parking spaces
with access from the road that now connects with
Lot 7. Mr. Mallery was concerned with
the access area when pulling out of the parking lot. He was also concerned that the new parking
lot would detract from the appearance of the new CTC building. He suggested constructing a parking lot south
of the turn-a-round where a knoll is located.
Ms. Bonucci noted there are mature trees on the knoll and you can’t put
a price on those trees. She suggested
plantings around the parking lot to soften the area. The proposal will be presented to the whole
Board at the June meeting. Cheryl was
hoping to bid this project and the resurfacing of Lot 1 at the same time to
secure cost efficiencies.
It was moved by Mr. Mallery, seconded by Ms. Bonucci,
to adjourn the meeting at 6:30 p.m.
