C.U.T.R. Center for Urban Transportation Research DESIGN DEVELOPMENT Project Numba BR-502 University of Soulh Florida State of Florida Board of Regents Alfonso Architects, Inc. 1705 North 16th Street Tampa, Florida 33605 May 7, 1995


IN1RODUCI10N Alfonso Architects, Inc, is pleased to submit for your review this Design Development Phase submittal for the construction of a new facility for the Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida. The design presented is the result of a cooperative effort by the design team, the building committee, CUIR staff and the University of South Florida Facilities Planning office. During this phase, several changes were made to the design as a result of a more detailed study of program and budget. The major contributor to the change in the design was cost. Using th e services of an eJeperienced cost consultant to obtain a detailed evaluation of the project, we gained a greater knowledge of the anticipated cost to build the fucility. Therefore, in order to fulfill the program requirements while still maintaining the prograni. .budget, we have altered the building fonn and use of materials. The resulting solution represents a synthesis of the spirit of CUIR, the requirements of program and the constraints of budget expressed as an architectural ideal. Included with this submission are the minutes of the group meetings held during this phase as well as those held with the State Fire Marshall and USF's handicapped facility coordinator. A)so included are descriptions of the major components of the building. finish. schedule, project schedule, cost estimate, bid scope recommendations, project checklist and Cost Containment Guidelines. This submittal is another positive step toward the successful completion of a building that embodies functionality, user fiiendliness and design excellence. We believe that the work produced during the Design Development Phase will be a strong foundation on which to base a comprehensive set of the Construction Documents. Alfonso Architects, Inc. is looking forward to proceeding with the next phase of this project. We would appreciate any comments you might have regarding this submittal.

Alfonso Architects, Inc. 1705 N. 16th Street Tampa, Florida 33605 Ph 815 247 5555 Fax 813 24 7 5595 The primary purpose of this meeting is to review the progress of the building design, raise budgetary concerns and to discuss comments made by Mr. Kenneth l'vfitchell, SUS Architect, pertaining to the Advanced Schematic Design Submittal. AA Reviewed Ken 1\tlitchell' s requirement that the project bid be "safeguarded" by 7 to 100/o. Since bids for other SUS projec ts have been coming in over by 7 to 1 00/o, we are being asked to design the facility with a budget reduced by this amount. AAl proposes to do this by using the following Additive Alternates: Covered pedestrian bridge leading to Engineering II Atrium element Curved roof clad in copper Covered walkway in front of building A discussion about the possibility of hiring an independent cost consultant ensued For a fee of 3 to 5 thousand dollaxs, an outside consultant vvould a detailed coo."! analysis. This could be used to justify the project budget to SUS. The current building siting was discussed. The building has been shifted toward the south with the face south face of CUIR aligning with the south face of Engineering II. This allows for adequate acoess for construction on the north side of the building and assures that trailers El\.1-B and EM-E will not need to be relocated. AAC00!672


Alfonso Architects Meeting Minutes February 14, 1995 Page Two GB This meeting was caJled so that the building committee will be aware of the problems with the BOR requiring additional set-asides for cost ovemms. Gary disagrees with the number of contingencies being assigned to this project: Project contingency bid contingency and cost escalation contingency . M With the bids received lately for BOR projects, we would be more comfortable with input from a cost consultant. We want to respond to Ken Mitchell ASAP to keep the project on schedule. A discussion of the project budget ensued: The total project budget is three million dollars. Included in this amount is a furniture a professional fees a budget for testing am surveying CXlSIS, a project contingency, am a 24 million dollar construction budget. The furniture am furnishings budget is $148,000. 1lw Project contingency is approximately $108,000. This is to cover unforeseen costs undertaken during the dumtion of tlle project, including change orders. The conslnlction budget is $2,400,000. Per SUS standards, a cost escalation fuctor is included as a part of this budget. For this project, the cost escalation factor included in the Budget analysis form is $120,000. This amount is equal to 5% of the construction budget and is included to cover the amount a bidder includes in his estimate for cost escalation througbout the life of the contract. The additional Bidding Contingency requested by Ken Mitchell is 7 to I 00/o of the construction budget much is a minimwn of $159,000. In order for this amount to be taken out of the construction budget, the design nrust be altered. AAI has proposed to do this by designating pat1S of the design as Additive Alternates. GB CUJR is prepared to give up a portion of the furniture budget to get the building elements. They have furniture for everyone at this time and can reuse it in the new building. MA Is uncomfortable with using the covered podest:rian bridge as an alternate item It's hard to add back this kind of item. Perhaps landscaping could be bid as an alternate. HG ls concerned with handicapped acoess to f.tlgineering ll and the existing CUIR trailers during construction. If the pedestrian bridge is not built, bow is handicapped access accomplished?

DB If both rooms are to be for teleconfrencing, then tv.o control rooms be needed; each a door into the seminar rooms. There should also be a door into the control rooms for access from outside the seminar rooms. The terraced seminar room should have space at the back of the room for the camera The camera should be able to shoot above the heads of the last row of seated Provide a means of audio pick up of questions asked from audience, perhaps parabolic mikes located above that are controlled by the control teclmicians. Lighting should be color-balanced fluorescent. The marker board or chalk board, if used, should be canted to avoid light reflections. Make space and cabling provisions at the front of the room for monitors that the audience can view. They prefer not to use projection 1Vs for this because of lighting. Make provisions for cabling from camerss to control room, from control room to presenters desk or podiwn, and from audience desks to control room (for ioteractive). Tray type system is preferred. Single conduit in existing facility is inadequate. T::mp:t AAC:001612


Meeting l'vfinutes March 3, 1995 Page 1\vo Alfonso Architects Consider raised floor system to enable flexibility of cabling, etc. Provide a stable camera molDlting over the presentation desk. Provide a space at the' fr.ont toward one side for a camera to face toward the audience. . . Try to keep the terraced room shape shallow ftont-to-back. Three rows deep is a comfortable distance. Consider making the presentation desk removable so that podium can be utilized. Transformers and ballast should be remotely located to avoid s o\Dld intelference. Mount at the rear of the room AAI and AGI should look at the way the ceiling and lighting were designed at the facility a t CIS I 046. Presentation desk to be eqtripped with camera monitors and a line morritor. GB These facilities be used for conferences, seminars and classes. The construction budget does not include the video and audio equipment, but does cover the room design and installation of built-in services for the future installation of the eq_uipment DB Provide conduit for connections from CUIR to the existing data switching and video switching areas in Engineering IT. The contmls rooms used in Engineering IT are too narrow. Provide space for equipment and tape storage. Support staff will not be CUIR staff. They will be contracted to CU1R from DB. When the facility is fully operational, 3 camera operators, 1 solDld operator and 2 production persons will be in the facility. Provide a "home-base" space for crew belongings. Provide office space for 2 Production personnel. GB If a fiXed desk layout is used, shouldn't a modesty panel be provided? PH Most CUfR conferences are classroom Style. DB Try to iso late outside noise from the s eminar rooms.


Meeting Minutes March 3, 1995 Page Three Alfonso Architects MA The bathroorm might pore a noise problem. JP The roof terrace could be a noise problem too. DB Could o ne of the seminar rooms be located above the other on the second floor? GB We liked having the conference rooms on the second floor because of the distribution of meeting spaces. CIK We could put the terraced room above the flat floor room and move the conference rooms downstairs. DB If the rooms were stacked, a vertical chase could handle the cabling betv.-een the control rooms, etc. If stacked, I v..-ould prefer to have the terraced room on the second floor so that more sound isolation would be built in. You might also want cabling to the conference rooms so they could be used as adjunct spaces. The flat floor room should be set up to have camera access from all sides. Flexible cable access is important. Raised floor system is most flexible, but also most costly. Floor trenches in a 8' X 8' grid is not as flexible, but more cost effective. Raoeway at perimeter with a few crossingll is a good compromise. JP We might look at providing a section of rai.sed floor in the ceuter of the room RA Would like to conf= v..hat is in the construction budget. Lighting, poy,er for equipment, conduit or raoeways for cabling. AGI will coordinate with DB's staff to design the utilities for the equipment, based on their recommended equipment specifications . DB You might look at building the space with room to raise the ceiling, should a raised floor system be installed in the future. The doors into the flat floor seminar room should be moved to the sides. Recommend that AAI and AGI look at the facility at CIS I 046. The TV monitor mounting is bad and the room is turned sidev.ays.

AAl has obtained one proposal for a detailed cost estimate. The cost was much more than was discussed at the meeting with the building committee. AAl is getting other proposals. RB t"unding for the equipment listed in the program for the seminar rooms is in question. If the equipment is to be considered a part of this contract, then it must be paid for from either the construction budget or tbe finniture budget. Either way, this impacts the ability to use the finniture funds as a contingency. GB Believes tlJat the equipment was never meant'to be a part of the project budget, beyond the costs for installing the infrastructure to run the equipment. At a later date, the equipment will be bought with separate funds. If fixed tables are going to be used, then they should be provided with construction dollars. Chairs would be bought with finniture funds. The flat floor room would be finnished furniture funds. In both rooms as well as the board room, built-ins would be paid for ,,;th construction funds.

RB Rey will, with Gary's support, issue a memorandum stating that the AN equipment for the seminar rooms will be funded separately. AAI will show in the documents that the oontractor will provide conduits with pull wire for the equipment at the locatiom recommended by Drew Barrett. Discussion ensued regarding the 313195 meeting with Drew Barrett and the recommendatiom made. GB One control room should be adequate. The size in the pro&ram is alm:>st twice as large as the current rooms in Fngineering U They can use remote facilities if necessary. GB Stacking the seminar rooms is OK, but the present configuration with the conference rooms upstairs is preferred. GB If the AN crew needs an office, they can use one of the CUfR offices in the main building. There should not be an office in the cylinder. AAI to si.Udy stacking the seminar rooms: Look at eliminating n oise sources Look at using a regular roof instead of the roof terrace. Look at making the plwnbing layout more efficient.

The purpose of this meeting is to: Review the starus of the project Review the estimated cost of the project at this time SG The main issue to be discussed during this meeting is our concern that the project is over budget. Our knowledge base bas grown and the costs are now detailed. We need to look at the budget problem head-on. We have obtained a cost estimate from an outside source and it indicates a highe r cost than anticipated. We are experiencing higher costs in other construction projects due to market forces; a lack of capacity from the contractors and sub-contractors available in this market. Art Sisca and the Architects still need to discuss the cost estimate to finalize the number because at this time, e v e n with the adjustments already made (making the atrium, elevated wal.bvay and curved roof alternate items) the project is still over budget. The time to fix the problem is now. GB Do you have any clues to how to put it back on track? SG I. There is the potential of tapping the furniture and equipment fund. A decision needs to be made about how much is it prudent to use and what other funds are available. CU1R needs t o establish \\nether they can get fimds in the future to make up for the sacrifices being made now. 2. Utilize the commuter Center Grant monies to inool]lOrate this feature into the facility, utilizing some common elements -the restrooms and the atrium lobby. Miami AAC00 1672


Meeting Minutes April 28, 1995 Page Two 3. Look for other funding possib ilities : Alfonso Architects MA The college originally want e d the infill type of addition for CUIR but were with figures that indicated that additional expenses \\oold be incurred using this approach. We accepted the approach to do a separate building but along reluctantly. Fn;m our standpoint, having the covered walkway be an alternate is not aoceplllble. People are getting wet. Maybe it a bridge, maybe jUSI: a covered walkway at grade. GB Are there any other cost savings available? SG The round element. Architectuia!J y I understand and appreciate the reason for the fonn. and it makes a nice connection with the existing building. It undoubtedly will cost more to build this form than a square one. M.A How about the aroount of brick? SG There could be a reduction of the amotmt of brick, substituting sruooo. HG How mucb freedom do \\e have to leave some space unfmished? JC Any space we build now must be useable space. SO Critical Issues: There will be price creep during the life of this project The only to defend the budget is with a contingency. G B How much of the cost overrun is due to design issues material costs? AEA We got some costs from local contractors, sub-contractors and suppliers and have given this infonnation to the estimator. The dialog between us has not yet occurred. SO Define the task: Have a 10"/o design contingency The board requires 7"/o in bid alternates GB If w e have the largie contingency, will v.e have the project structured to spero all of the budget with alternates? SO At the end of the Construction Documeots Phase the contingency is 0% because the dra'vings have all the materials identified. AEA A t what poin t will the decision be made to use or not use the fumiture budget?


rvteeting Minutes April 28, 1995 Page Three Alfonso Architects GB From the building conunittee's standpoint these are the priorities: I. There must be a covered connection between CUfR and Engineering IT, but there is flexibility as to what i t is. 2. Eliminate the single bathrooms at the west end of the building. 3. Free-up some of the furniture budget by determining the amount needed to buy the items ,,-e don't already have. Tile electronic equipment for the teleconferencing facility is not the budget. 4. The amount of brick can be minimalized as long as the new building is integrated with the existing building. 5. Eliminate the curved metal roof. 6. Eliminate the cylinder shape if it is a costly element. 7. Eliminate the atriwn. MA The architect doesn't need to engage in a debate with the estimator. HG In Engineering IT we have very expensive solid wood doors with oak veneer in metal frames set in walls that you could put your foot through. Are v;e mandated to spend rooney this v.ay or could we get less expensive doors? AEA Is the sound attenuation in the v.alls a deletable item? GB&HG No. GB Our desires v.ere simple. The important thing is to have the and to have tl)e atrium space, We wanted an inexpensive building with more space. SG The level of life expeC1aney for these buildings is 50 to I 00 years. This plus building under the University prooess is \\hy this building costs more than others. Is incorporating the Conunuter center not a valid option? GB The idea is open to discussion, but we thought that it would not function as v.ell on campus in this location. We would also need to find a way to joint -share the labor costs.

March 23, 1995 Mr. Charles Kitzmiller, RA Alfonso Architects 1705 N. 16th Street Tampa, Florida 33605 Project: USF Center For Urban Transportation Research Subject: Design Development Phase Submittal Dear Mr. Kitzmiller : The following information is provided to supplement the Design Development draWings dated May 5, 1995. I) A geotechnical report for this project was issued by Professional Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), on January 16, 1995. According to this report there are loose to medium dense fmesandsto a depth of approximately ten (I 0) feet below existing grades. These soils with suitable preparation and compaction, are reported to be capable of supporting the proposed structure, on shallow spread footings with total and differential settlements within aroeptable limits. PSI performed standard penetration tests and developed a net maximum allowable bearing pressure of2500 pounds per square toot. The designs of the slabs on grade and shallow spread footings shown on the drawings were based upon this information. 2) The proposed construction will incorporate load bearing exterior masonry walls and steel interior columns. The floors and roofs will be supported by metal declring on open web steel bar joists connected to walls beams and girders. This construction was adopted based upon economy and serviceability. We have completed and attached the applicable portions of the Cost Containment Guidelines Checklist. We checked one "no" box. This is on page 45/ Division 4 Masonry I 04200 Unit Masonry I Tolerances. The current design incorporates some interior non-load bearing masonry walls which terminate below the main roof diaphragm. We would like to terminate these walls as sbown in attached sketches, Sections 5023 and 5024. Please let us know if this will be acoeptable.

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT NARRATIVE HVAC Cooling and Heating Systems The estimated cooling load for the building will be approximately 57.6 tons with a sensible heat ratio of approximately 65%. The building design criteria are indicated on the plans. The cooling for the building will be provided by the campus chilled water loop which is fed from the central plant. The chilled water design criteria is for 45p water, as directed in the predesign meeting on January 25, 1995, with a l5F temperature difference between entering and leaving water. We anticipate that cooling for the building will be provided by variable air volume (VA V) systems with pressure independent VA V boxes. This decision may be mod ified by the results of the FLEET Life Cycle Cost Analysis which was submitted at the Schematic Phase and has not been returned. The heating load will be approximately 179 MBH and will be provided by the campus heating hot water loop which is also fed from the central plant. The heating bot water design criteria is for 160F as directed in the predesign meeting on January 25, 1995, water with a 50F temperature difference between entering and leaving water Building heat will be provided by hot water coils in the variable air volume boxes. A beating coil will be provided in each of the air handlers for humidity control. The central plant has sufficient capacity to meet both the cooling and heati ng loads of this building. The primary air handlers will be double-wall type with stainless steei drain pans with a positive slope for drainage. The coil sections will be specified \vith stainless bracing. The fans will be selected at their highest efficiency points and will be provided with high efficiency m otors. The air systems will be variable volume type with electronic thermostats controlling electric variable air volume actuators. The supply air volume will be modulated through the use of variable frequency drives on the air handler fan motors. Ventilation (fresh Air) Fresh air has been determined by calculations in conformance with ASHRAE Standard 62-1989 -Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality using the Room Effect Method. Those calculations are presented on the drawings. Because of the high quantity of fresh air required, we anticipate this building will require a system to dehumidify the fresh air. Separate I 00% fresh air sys tems will be provided to introduce dehumidified fresh air into the return air streams of the primary units. HVAC Controls The environmental controls in this building will be direct digital control with electric motor actuators on dampers and valves. There will be one data terminal per building which \vill be tied into the campus system through the Ethernet The approved controls


manufacturers are American Automatrix and Landis and Gyr. The control valves will be 2-way type. The speed of the air handler fans will be controlled by variable frequency drives. The control system will include humidity sensing and control and C02 sensing for monitoring purposes. The humidity setpoint will be 55% RH maximum. PLUMBING General The building has a projected daily usage of2,235 gallons per day. The maximum flow. rate is expected to be 67.5 gpm. The build i ng will require a 2 inch domestic water supply connection and a 4 inch sanitary wast e connection Piping Domestic potab l e h ot and cold water piping will be Type L copper tube with so l der fittings above grade and Type K copper tube with solder fittings below grade. Exterior below grade domestic potab l e water will be Schedule 40 PVC. Sanitary waste and vent piping will be no-hub cast-iron pipe and fittings above grade and hub and spigot cast-iron pipe and fittings below grade. Plumbing F ixtures P l umbing fixtures will be based on American Standard commercial type fixtures Water closets will be wall hung type with flush valves (S,loan or equal). Urinals will be wall hung type with flu sh valves (Sloan or equa l). Lavatories will be vitreous china wall hung with wrist blades and gooseneck spouts where required for handicapped accessibility. Electric water coolers will be handicapped accessible and certified lead-free. Sinks will be stainless steel type with gooseneck spouts. Service sinks will be floor mounted terrazo type with hose and mop bracket. Floor drains will be provided in each gang toilet and mechanical room. Plumbing Equipment Since there is minimal hot water demand in the building, the water heaters will be small commercial type with e l ectr i c elements. Where a single remote sink requires hot water, an instantaneous type electric water heater v,ill be u tilized to reduce standby and piping losses FIRE PROTECTION General The building will be fully sprinklered in conformance with NFPA 13 with a light hazard occupancy. The preliminary indications are that ba se d on the capabilities of the future domestic water service loop and water tower system the building will not require a fire pump


ELECI'RICAL Electrical Service Estimated connected load will be approximately 175 KV A. The electrical service requirements have been discussed with Frank Shannon. Mr. Shannon stated that he preferred that we utilize the existing pad mounted transformer on the west en!i of the ENB building, since it is presently under-utilized. Mr. Shannon stated that this transformer has a 480Y/277 volt secondary voltage with 52,275 amps of short circuit current available at the secondary terminals. We briefly discussed utilizing a 208Y/120 volt service, but this was rejected since Mr. Shannon preferred to use the extra capacity available in the existing pad mounted transformer. Service Entrance A 480 volt, main service entrance panelboard will be located in the main electrical room. The panelboard will co n tain a main circuit breaker and a distribution section to serve other distribution panels. A transient voltage surge suppresser will be pro v ided on the service entrance. Voltage drop will be designed for less than 3% at the main disconnect and a maximum of 5% to any utilization point. Power Distribution Panelboards will be strategically located as indicated on the drawings to serve lighting, receptacles, mechanical equipment and other equipment loads. The majority of the lighting will be served at 277 volt with dry type transformers utilized to provide 208Y/120 volt 3 phase panels to serve receptacles, plus any necessary incandescent lighting and other 120 volt or 208 volt equipment. Mechanical equipment, the elevator and other large loads will be served via the 480 volt panels. Emer!,lency Power A diesel powered emergency generator will be specified to provide required stand-by power for emergency lighting, exit signs, fire alarm power, the elevator, and the fire pump, if applicable. The generator is estimated to be 40 KW based upon the present estimated emergency power load. The proposed location for the generator is outside, but the exact location for the generator needs to be finalized. An automatic transfer switch located in the main electrical room, will be specified to provide automatic changeover upon loss of utility power.


I.ighting General building lighting is specified to be 2' x 4', fluorescent lamp type with T8 lamps, electronic ballasts Low glare VD T type fixtures with precision cut-off louvers meeting IES Standard RP-24, are specified throughout the building for offices/labs, seminar rooms and other locations where gla r e on video screens would be objectionable The following swnmarizes the design criteria utilized for lighting levels and required function in the various areas: General Offices/Research Lab: Other Research Labs or Areas: Work Room/Storage: Stairways/Corridors: Reception!W aiting : Staff Lounge: BoardRoo m : Conf e rence Rooms: Gallery/Lobby: 2nd Floor Seminar Room: 1st F loor Seminar Room: 50-60 fc avg., Low glare/VDT type fixture 50-60 fc avg., Low glareNDT type fixture 30-40 fc avg 30 fcavg. 30 fcavg. 30-40 fc avg.

Remote mounted ballasts.


Control Room Exterior Lighting: Communication$ General lighting is provided for 50-60 fc avg plus the capability for dimming with fluorescent dimming of the PL lamp downlights. Entry's10 fc avg.; Exterior walkways -5 fc avg .; Metal halide lamps will be utilized near the building and under the walkway since it is only 40 feet long HPS type fixtures will be used where any necessary pole top fixtures are required away from the building. Data and voice communications will be accommodated with raceway and communications closets as required by the USF telecommunications standards. Exact raceway and cabling requirements, such as cable tr ay, fiber optic cable, copper twisted pairs, equipment racks or other communications systems requirements still need to be coordinated with USF and CUTR. Exact details of raceway requirements for the Seminar Room teleconferencing equipment need to be coordinated with USF. Current design criteria for the telecommunications requirements is indica ted on the drawings .. Fire Alann A microprocessor based, addressable fire alarm system will be specified similar to the Simplex 4020 or Notifier AM2020. The system will perform the required sprinkler system supervision and additional fire alarm requirements, such as duct smoke detectors and smoke detectors and heat detectors for the elevator. The system is not anticipated to require voice activation, but will utilize horns and strobes for annunciation. The system will be designed for 40% spare capacity on the initiation device and indicating appliance circuits The installing fire alarm contractor will be required to certify the system and obtain all Fire Marshal l approvals. Security A security system(s) is not included in the present design. Wiring System Copper co n ductors will be required throughout the facility with most interior raceways utilizing EMT. Rigid galvanized conduit will be required where exposed to the exterior, hazardous locations or other heavy duty requirements PVC will be specified for underground conduits with RGS elbows and risers up into equipment.


Liehtning Pr otection & Grounding The require men t for lightning protection was discussed with Frank Shannon. Mr. Shannon sta ted that a l ightning protection system shoul d not be required for this building A transient voltage surge sup presser will be specified for the service entr ance. T he elimination of the lightning protection system will be verified with the user since it is indicated in the progr am A building gtOund ring will be specified to bond th e service ground to the buildin g s teel at all exterior wa ll columns and some interior co lumns i f applicable.
