Minutes

Capital Planning and Budget Committee

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Committee Chair Regent Bartell convened the meeting of the Capital Planning and Budget Committee at 12:44 p.m. in Room 1418 at Van Hise Hall on the UW-Madison campus.  Committee members present were Regents Bartell, Drew, Opgenorth, Vasquez, and Walsh.

I.3.a.    Approval of the Minutes of the December 4, 2008 Meeting of the Capital Planning and Budget Committee

Upon the motion of Regent Vasquez and the second of Regent Opgenorth, the minutes of the December 4, 2008 meeting of the Capital Planning and Budget Committee were approved as presented.

I.3.b.   UW- Extension:  Approval of the Design Report and Authority to Adjust the Scope and Budget and Construct the Lowell Hall Guest Room Remodeling Project

This item requested approval of the Design Report and authority to: (a) adjust the project scope and budget by $1,000,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing and (b) construct the Lowell Hall Guestroom Remodeling for a revised estimated total project cost of $4,600,000 ($1,800,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing and $2,800,000 Program Revenue-Cash).

This project will convert office space at the Lowell Center, which is housed within Lowell Hall (610 Langdon Street), into 58 guestrooms and consolidate the Conference Center operations into facilities within close proximity.  The work will remodel portions of floors five, six, and seven and will include approximately 22,800 GSF of space.  Renovations will include new finishes as well as electrical, plumbing, and heating and ventilation system upgrades.  In addition, a new fire sprinkler system will be installed throughout the entire facility.

This project will allow UW-Extension to consolidate conference operations into two facilities that are located closer together (the Pyle Center and Lowell Hall) and, thus, reduce operating and other costs.  The project’s budget increase is the result of the installation of a building wide fire sprinkler system and higher than anticipated construction costs.  There will be no fee impact from this project.

Associate Vice President David Miller said this project was enumerated in the 2007-09

budget as recommended by the Regents in August 2006 and has reached the design report stage.  The primary reason for the budget increase is to put fire sprinklers in the entire building as opposed to just sprinklering the areas under remodeling.  Bill Mann, Director of the Conference Centers was present to answer any questions relating to this project, as was Chancellor Wilson and Luis Fernandez, Facilities Director.   

Mann spoke on the new sprinkler codes that prompted the revision of sprinklering the entire building.  Also, the asbestos abatement costs in this project increased to approximately $300,000. 

Regent Bartell asked for clarification on the statement “partial funding for the project will come from the transfer of the JFF Center to the UW-Madison”.  Mann said that four years ago Extension entered into an inter-institutional agreement with UW-Madison.  The Freidrick Center and Conference Center were transferred to UW-Madison for housing in exchange for additional space at the Lowell Center.  Bartell asked if this was a permanent transfer and Mann answered that it was a permanent transfer.

Regent Drew asked about the asbestos abatement cost increase.  Fernandez answered that when the budget was developed the cost was approximately $100,000 however DOA hired a contractor to look at the building’s asbestos issues and found that the cost would increase about $300,000 for the abatement.  Fernandez added that this is not a final number for the abatement, just an estimate between $300,000 and $400,000.

In response to a question from Regent Bartell, Miller stated that the project is only at the 35% design stage and that Regents were approving a maximum cost in this resolution.

Upon the motion of Regent Vasquez and the second of Regent Drew, the Committee unanimously approved Resolution I.3.b.

Resolution I.3.b.

That, upon the recommendation of the of the UW-Extension Chancellor and the President of the University of Wisconsin System, the Design Report be approved and authority be granted to: (a) increase the project scope and budget by $1,000,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing and (b) construct the Lowell Hall Guestroom Remodeling for a revised estimated total project cost of $4,600,000 ($3,600,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing and $1,000,000 Program Revenue-Cash.

I.3.c.    UW-Madison:  Approval of the Design Report and Authority to Adjust the Budget and Construct the Union South Replacement Project

This item requested approval of the Design Report of the Union South Replacement project and authority to (a) increase the project budget by $7,100,000 ($3,100,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing-Existing, $2,500,000 Program Revenue-Cash (parking); and $1,500,000 Gift Funds; (b) substitute $1,900,000 Program Revenue-Cash for Program Revenue Supported Borrowing; and (c) construct the project at a revised total project cost of $94,800,000, ($86,900,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing, $4,400,000 Program Revenue-Cash and $3,500,000 Gift Funds).

This project will construct a 276,664 GSF new student union, parking ramp, and loading dock.  The new facility of 125,070 ASF/ 191,872 GSF will accommodate technology-equipped meeting facilities, improved recreational facilities, a 350-seat auditorium, lounge space, expanded food service, expanded retail offerings, and 60 guest rooms.  This building will be designed and constructed by utilizing sustainable design practices with the goal of becoming a LEED certified project (per US Green Building Council guidelines).

The project will also construct a 182 stall/70,318 GSF parking ramp under the building with a new service access and a 14,474 GSF covered loading dock.  The site and exterior design of the building will accommodate a future inter-modal transportation hub that may include a bus stop, a commuter rail station, and a bike station.  The project will relocate major utilities including campus steam, chilled water, power, signal, and city water in order to accommodate the construction.  

The existing Union South is being demolished along with Hi-Ray Hall (1308 West Dayton Street) and the Randall Tower building, which is currently owned by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF).  WARF will demolish the Randall Tower building and then convey the property to the Board of Regents.  The new South Campus Union will have an expanded footprint and will be built on the site that encompasses all of these properties and a vacated portion of West Johnson Street.  

Early in development of the project, input by the Construction Manager-at-Risk resulted in a more informed constructability analysis and a higher cost estimate than the original budget estimate provided.  A number of options were reviewed and implemented to reduce the project costs; however, the resulting budget is still above the amount enumerated for the Union South Replacement project.  Further cuts would not fulfill the terms of the student referendum, which endorsed the fee increase that funds much of the project.  To fund the difference, the campus will provide additional program revenue cash for the parking ramp, add gift funds, and utilize existing approved bonding authority (student segregated fees) from the Memorial Union Theater Wing Renovation project, which was enumerated in the 2007-09 Capital Budget.  This action was approved by the Union Council, which is the Governing Board of the Wisconsin Union.  Students appointed by Associated Students of Madison hold a majority of council seats.  If bids are favorable and there are savings, the segregated fees will be returned to the Memorial Union Theater Wing Renovation project.  If there are no savings, the scope of the theater wing project will be reduced.

Alan Fish Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities Planning & Management, Mark Guthier Director of the Unions and Shana Hetzel were present. 

Regent Walsh inquired as to why if this was approved in the past is it back for approval today.  Miller stated that this is the design report.  What was approved before was the demolition as a separate project.  Fish stated they were working with the contractors to determine the final cost of this project so they can proceed with planning without having to cut additional necessary space. 

Miller stated that the segregated fees used for this project do not exceed the previously approved amount by the students.  Guthier stated they have come up with an approach to preserve promises made to the students.  In the South project, the promises were things like double the meeting space for student organizations, adding a climbing wall, and a coffeehouse.  The additional funding for Union South will come from reducing the scope and cost of renovations to the Memorial Union phase of the overall project.  Guthier stated that the student approval of segregated fees for the project included both buildings and did not divide funding between the two phases

Regent Walsh asked if there was a student approval of this transfer of funds.  Guthier replied that this went before the Union Council which is comprised of a majority of students for approval and it was approved unanimously on January 20th

Regent Bartell recognized two students who requested to speak on this project.  The students are Kurt Gosslin and Tyler Junger.  Junger who is an elected member of the Student Services Finance Committee (SSFC), spoke first regarding the transfer of student segregated fees from the Memorial Union project to the Union South project.  He also stated he believes the transfer of funds approval should go through another committee rather than just the Union Council. . 

Gosslin, Chairman of the Student Services Finance Committee, then spoke of his concerns for the process by which the segregated fees were reallocated from the original intent that was presented to the SSFC and subsequently approved.  Gosslin disagrees with the process of transferring funds and requested that the approval of this project be postponed until additional student governance groups can address the issue.   Both students said that did not oppose the project and that their intent was not to stop the project.

Regent Walsh inquired whether these two students talked to any legal counsel at the University or is there a dispute.  Gosslin replied that they have not discussed this with their legal counsel yet, but they believe that additional approval of the transfer of student segregated fees is necessary.  Dan Cornelius, a student, stated that he had spoke with legal counsel about the approval process for the overall project.  Cornelius stated that he was told by UW System legal counsel that the approval process for the project was completed.  However he agreed with Gosslin and Junger that the scope and budget changes warranted additional student government approval.

Regent Bartell asked Shana Hetzel if the referendum allocated the segregated fees to the first phase or the second phase of the project.  Hetzel answered that it did not allocate the fees to a specific phase of the project.  She went on to say that the referendum did earmark all the segregated fees to be used for the Union South and the Memorial Union and did not delineate between the two unions.  The approval was a general agreement that what the students asked for in the two unions would indeed be accomplished in the two unions.  Miller stated that separating the fee revenue into the two phases of the Union projects was a budget decision determined after approval of the overall fee increase. 

Regent Opgenorth commented that a student might initially support the amount of segregated fees and then not be aware that the fees are increased in the future.  He said that when the bill comes the student could be opposed to actually paying the increase. 

Alan Fish proposed that facilities and union directors and staff will meet with SSFC and explain the plan more clearly to the students and how shifting of funds from Phase II of the project into Phase I will benefit the students by completing the project in a timely manner.

Regent Bartell revised the resolution to include the following language requiring the Chancellor’s office to meet with the students; “and upon the commitment of the Chancellor’s office to review the project funding structure with the Segregated University Fee Allocation Committee.”

Upon the motion of Regent Drew and the second of Regent Walsh, the Committee unanimously approved the revised Resolution I.3.c.

Revised Resolution I.3.c.

That, upon the recommendation of the of the UW-Madison Chancellor and the President of the University of Wisconsin System, and upon the commitment of the Chancellor’s office to review the project funding structure with the Segregated University Fee Allocation Committee, the Design Report of the Union South Replacement project be approved and authority be granted to: (a) increase the project budget by $7,100,000 ($3,100,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing-Existing, $2,500,000 Program Revenue-Cash (Parking); and $1,500,000 Gift Funds; (b) substitute $1,900,000 Program Revenue-Cash for Program Revenue Supported Borrowing; and (c) construct the project at a revised total project cost of $94,800,000, ($86,900,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing, $4,400,000 Program Revenue-Cash and $3,500,000 Gift Funds).

I.3.d.   UW-Madison:  Approval of the Design Report and Authority to Construct the Lakeshore Utility Improvements - Phase I Project

This item requested approval of the Design Report, and authority to construct the Lakeshore Utility Improvements-Phase I project at a cost of $4,720,000 ($3,879,000 General Fund Supported Borrowing and $841,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing).

This project will construct a new utility corridor north from Observatory Drive along the east side of the Natatorium to the existing utility corridor located just south of Goodnight Hall.  The corridor will continue southeast, parallel with the existing lakeshore utility corridor, and terminate near Elm Drive.  The existing utility corridor contains a steam box conduit with steam and condensate lines, compressed air line, and electrical/signal lines.  The project includes all needed site restoration.  The utilities which will be provided in the new corridor include:  a steam and compressed air system, a chilled water system and electrical/signal systems. 

The project scope also included approximately 800 feet of new roadway parallel to the utility corridor from Observatory Drive to immediately south of Goodnight Hall.  This work will be deferred to remain within the budget. 

Miller directed attention to the location of the future road on the project maps and said that the road would was intended to provide service access to the future Lakeshore Residence Hall.  He said that the road would be included in the scope of that project if enumerated.

Upon the motion of Regent Opgenorth and the second of Regent Vasquez, the Committee unanimously approved Resolution I.3.d.

Revised Resolution I.3.d.

That, upon the recommendation of the of the UW-Madison Chancellor and the President of the University of Wisconsin System, the Design Report be approved and authority be granted to construct the Lakeshore Utility Improvements-Phase I project at a cost of $4,720,000 ($3,879,000 General Fund Supported Borrowing and $841,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing).

I.3.e.    UW- Madison:  Authority to Seek a Waiver of Wis. Stats s.16.855 under the Provisions of s.13.48 (19) to Accept a Single Prime Contractor Bid for the Chazen Museum of Art Addition Project

This item requested authority to seek a waiver of Wis. Stats s.16.855 under the provisions of s.13.48 (19) to accept a single prime contractor bid for the Chazen Museum of Art Addition.

This project will construct a new 81,200 GSF building located at 750 University Avenue, as a major addition to the Chazen Museum of Art, which is currently housed in the Elvehjem building.  The new building, which will consist of a basement and three stories, will provide space for the display and storage of works of art and will include areas for conservation and exhibition preparation rooms, project and print study classrooms, an auditorium, and a museum shop. The building will be linked to the existing Elvehjem building via a third story gallery “bridge.”

The campus requests single-prime bidding for this project to ensure that responsibility for coordination, scheduling and quality control is contractually awarded to a single firm. This waiver will allow a single prime contractor to properly address numerous complex construction issues associated with this major addition.  Issues triggering this degree of complexity include:  (a) an extremely tight construction site with an associated high degree of contractor attention to staging and sequencing of the project work; (b) multiple project contracts by separate contractors and overlapping scopes of work which will simultaneously occur within this small dense area of campus; and (c) a tie-in of the new building to the existing building in a manner that avoids both disruption of operations and endangerment of the collection.

Regent Bartell inquired whether the art museum is actually turning down money for art.  He further commented that just because the facility was a museum that the percent for building art should not necessarily be eliminated.

Russell Panczenko, director of the Chazen Museum was present and explained that the percent for art fee should be waived to allow those funds to be added to the building costs as the museum has art purchase endowments to supplement its art acquisition.  Miller pointed out that the percent for art was $118,000 in the budget.   Panczenko stated that instead of the $118,000 of construction funds going to building art that he had budgeted more than $350,000 from the museum acquisitions budget to purchase building art.  This would allow the $118,000 to be used for necessary construction.

Regent Bartell agreed that since additional funds were being dedicated to building art that the waiver was appropriate to support construction of the facility.

Upon the motion of Regent Opgenorth and the second of Regent Vasquez, the Committee unanimously approved Resolution I.3.e.

Resolution I.3.e.

That, upon the recommendation of the UW-Madison Chancellor and the President of the University of Wisconsin System, authority be granted to seek a waiver of Wis. Stats s.16.855 under the provisions of s.13.48 (19) to accept a single prime contractor bid for the Chazen Museum of Art Addition.

I.3.f.    UW- Madison:  Authority to Accept a Parcel of Land, Located at 1314 West Johnson Street, Madison, from WARF Properties, LLC

This item requested authority to accept a parcel of land, estimated at $4,300,000, located at 1314 West Johnson Street, from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) Properties, LLC pursuant to the terms of the Real Property Exchange Agreement between WARF and the Board of Regents and contingent upon receipt of an acceptable environmental audit. 

The property is within the campus boundary and is the site of the Randall Tower building which will be demolished by WARF Properties, LLC to create space for the new south Campus South building.  After demolition of the building, the property will be transferred to the Board of Regents pursuant to the terms of the Real Property Exchange Agreement. 

In 2006, both the Board of Regents and State Building Commission approved an exchange of a portion of Board of Regents-owned property at 1300 University Avenue on the UW‑Madison campus for strategic properties of equivalent value located within the UW‑Madison development boundary to be acquired by WARF. 

WARF acquired the property at 1314 West Johnson Street in 2005, and leased the building to various commercial tenants until 2007 when it was substantially vacated.  It has been used as offices for the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery/Morgridge Institute for Research project staff since that time. 

An environmental audit process of the entire property is underway.  If environmental hazards exist, remediation will be completed prior to transfer of the land.  The audit will be completed prior to seeking final approval from the State Building Commission.

Regent Walsh asked if state funds were used to purchase properties for the UW-Madison and Alan Fish answered that for decades the UW-Madison has only received land gifted to them or purchased with program revenue. 

Regent Bartell asked how the $4.3 million value for the property was determined.  Miller stated that it was the purchase price paid by WARF in 2006. Regent Walsh then asked what happens if the appraisal does not support the value of the land.  Miller stated that the value for the purpose of the exchange agreement will be determined by the appraisal.   

Regent Bartell introduced a revised resolution that included specific language making the approval contingent upon receiving an appraisal supporting the property’s value.

Upon the motion of Regent Walsh and the second of Regent Drew, the Committee unanimously approved Resolution I.3.f.

Revised Resolution I.3.f.

That, upon the recommendation of the UW-Madison Chancellor and the President of the University of Wisconsin System, authority be granted to accept a parcel of land, estimated at $4,300,000, located at 1314 West Johnson Street, from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) Properties, LLC pursuant to the terms of the Real Property Exchange Agreement between WARF and the Board of Regents and contingent upon receipt of (a) an appraisal supporting the property’s value and (b) an acceptable environmental audit.

I.3.g.    UW-Parkside:  Approval of the Design Report and Authority to Adjust the Project Scope and Budget and Construct the Communication Arts Remodeling and Addition Project

This item requested approval of the Design Report and authority to: (a) construct the Communication Arts Remodeling and Addition project contingent upon approval in the 2009-11 Capital Budget and (b) increase the project scope and budget by $2,830,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing–Utilities Repair and Renovation for an estimated total project cost of $38,606,000 ($33,700,000 General Fund Supported Borrowing, $2,830,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing–Utilities Repair and Renovation, and $2,076,000 Gift Funds).

The purpose of the project is to correct the severe deficiencies of instructional laboratories for the fine arts programs and to provide needed classrooms.  The Communication Arts Renovation and Addition project will remodel approximately 91,300 GSF of space in three facilities:  the Communication Arts Building, Molinaro Hall’s School of Modern Industry (SMI) addition, and Wyllie Hall.  It will construct approximately 70,800 GSF of addition(s) to the Communication Arts Building.  Remodeled and new construction will provide for:  expansion of the theatre arts, music and arts departments, construction of mid-size classrooms, relocation of Media Services, and construction of a free-standing sculpture courtyard and support building.

New mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, telecom, and audio visual systems will be provided throughout the new additions and updated systems will be provided in selective areas of the renovated areas.  Work will also include reconfiguration of the campus roads in the vicinity of the project, related site work, and landscaping.

The requested scope and budget increase will provide for the reconstruction and expansion of the Communication Arts Parking Lot and the reconfiguration of proximate roads.  The project will also increase the parking lot count from 760 to approximately 830 stalls in order to meet overall campus parking demand. 

Current annual parking rates range from $105 for commuter students to $110 for residential students, faculty, and staff.  Parking rates will be increased by an estimated $11.75 per year because of this project.

Interim Chancellor Earns, Vice Chancellor Bill Streeter and Campus Architect John Desch are present.  Desch showed architectural drawings of the project location on the campus and the two additions.  Miller added that the increase is to do the entire project including the adjacent parking lot at one time rather than spend more funds to do the parking lot as a separate phase.

Regent Bartell asked what the status is of the gift funds.  Miller replied that before the project goes to bid the campus has demonstrated that the gift funds are available in cash or provide a    letter of credit.  Miller added that in light of the weak economy and poor fund raising climate, the System is considering requesting that a portion of the gift commitment for this and other pending projects be replaced with state funds in the 2009-11 budget.

Upon the motion of Regent Walsh and the second of Regent Drew, the Committee unanimously approved Resolution I.3.g.

Resolution I.3.g.

That, upon the recommendation of the UW-Parkside Chancellor and the President of the University of Wisconsin System, the Design Report be approved and authority be granted to: (a) construct the Communication Arts Remodeling and Addition project contingent upon approval in the 2009-11 Capital Budget and (b) increase the project scope and budget by $2,830,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing–Utilities Repair and Renovation for an estimated total project cost of $38,606,000 ($33,700,000 General Fund Supported Borrowing, $2,830,000 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing–Utilities Repair and Renovation, and $2,076,000 Gift Funds).

I.3.h.   UW System:  Authority to Construct All Agency Maintenance and Repair Projects

This item requested authority to construct various maintenance and repair projects at an estimated total cost of $11,518,100 ($7,629,400 General Fund Supported Borrowing; $659,300 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing; $31,000 Agency Cash; $318,400 Program Revenue-Cash; and $2,880,000 Gifts and Grants Funding).

            Facilities Maintenance and Repair Requests

MIL - Greene Museum Renovation ($2,200,000):  This project will renovate and rehabilitate this historic building, including making critical foundation, structural, and exterior envelope repair.  Project work will include replacement of the roofing system; exterior doors, windows, and skylights; and all mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire detection, and telecommunications systems.  The remodeled building will provide new classrooms, meeting rooms, offices, and a reception area. 

MIL - Union Elevator Controls and Piping Units Renovation ($76,600 increase for a total project cost of $173,100):  This request increases the project budget to match recent bid results for the project scope approved under the Small Projects Program.  Project work requires additional building code related items which were not included in the original project scope or budget estimate.  It is also anticipated that a significant amount of premium time labor will be required to complete the work and to keep one of the two building elevators in operation throughout the project duration. 

WTW - Knilans Hall and Tutt Hall Restroom Renovation ($350,000 increase for a total project cost of $2,625,000):  This request will increase the project budget and scope to address unforeseen conditions encountered during construction. 

Health, Safety, and Environmental Protection

MSN - Multi-Building Fire Alarm and Smoke Detection System Replacement Phase 6 ($4,968,400):  This project will replace the fire alarm systems in 16 buildings to improve smoke and heat detection, provide additional audio/visual alarm signals to meet ADA code, and improve maintenance.  Pull stations, smoke and heat detectors, and audio-visual signal devices will be replaced to meet all current codes.  Signal devices will be installed in all public areas such as classrooms and labs to meet the latest

Programmatic Remodeling and Renovation

MIL - Great Lakes Research Facility Wet Bay Remodeling ($286,000):  This project will create a new wet bay laboratory and improve access between the dock and field operations.  This project will remodel 4,000 GSF of interior warehouse space on the west end of the building into a wet bay laboratory for field research operations, staging, and sample processing.  Project work will include the relocation of warehouse racking and laboratory casework, and the installation of a new exterior vehicle ramp, a new dock lift, a new passage door, and two new overhead doors.  Building electrical, telecommunication, and plumbing services will be extended into the new laboratory area.

Utilities Repair and Renovation Requests

MSN - Arlington Farms Manure Storage and Storm Water Control Improvements ($700,000):  This project will address manure storage and runoff control issues identified as conditions of the Wisconsin Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (WPDES) permit for the Arlington Agricultural Research Station farm facilities.

MSN - Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory Retaining Wall Repairs ($451,000):  This project will replace a failed retaining wall on the south side of the Veterinary Diagnostics Laboratory which cannot support the hydraulic and dead loads caused by the railroad corridor above. Project work will also install a new storm drainage system behind the new retaining wall that will empty into Willow Creek.

RVF - Ramer Field Lighting Replacement ($425,000):  This project will replace the field lighting system with a new system that is more energy efficient, easier to maintain, and provides adequate illumination levels on the football field and the track.  The new lighting system will use nearly 40 percent less energy while providing significantly better illumination on the playing field.

Miller said there was one revision to the Ramer Field Lighting Replacement will now be gift funds used for this project.  River Falls Foundation has raised the funds for this project.  Also the Milwaukee Greene Museum, which has been vacant since 1992, gift funds have been raised to renovate.  Regent Bartell commented it would cost more to operate a building as old as the museum.  Claude Schuttey Director of Planning at UW-Milwaukee commented this building has vacant for approximately 17 years because a new museum was built elsewhere on campus and this building will be used for storage

            Upon the motion of Regent Vasquez and the second of Regent Opgenorth, the Committee unanimously approved Resolution I.3.h.

Revised Resolution I.3.h.

That, upon the recommendation of the President of the University of Wisconsin System, authority be granted to construct various maintenance and repair projects at an estimated total cost of $11,518,100 ($7,629,400 General Fund Supported Borrowing; $659,300 Program Revenue Supported Borrowing; $31,000 Agency Cash; $318,400 Program Revenue-Cash; and $2,880,000 Gifts and Grants Funding).
