BOARD OF VISITORS EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS COMMITTEE
May 29, 1998

I. CONSENT AGENDA

A. ARCHITECT SELECTIONS, TERM CONTRACTS -- Architects for two term contracts will be presented for consideration by the Buildings and Grounds Committee. One contract is for the Academic Division. The other is for the Medical Center. Term contracts are used for the engagement of architecture and engineering firms to provide investigations, cost estimates, designs and related services for small capital construction projects. Most projects completed under term contracts are renovations. Since the cost of a term project can exceed $500,000, Board approval of the architect selection is required. Ellerbe Becket of Washington, DC is recommended for the Medical Center contract. Mitchell / Matthews & Associates of Charlottesville, Virginia is recommended for the Academic Division contract.

B. ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN GUIDELINES, SPECIAL COLLECTIONS LIBRARY -- The Special Collections Library will be a two story underground structure located in front of Alderman Library with an above ground entrance building on the site of Miller Hall. The Committee approved architectural design guidelines on January 8, 1993. Hartman Cox, the project architect, and the Architect for the University have prepared revised guidelines to reflect the design and program changes that have occurred over the last five years.

C. ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN GUIDELINES, CLINCH VALLEY COLLEGE SCIENCE BUILDING -- This project includes the renovation of the Science Building and the construction of a 37,000 gross square foot addition. The building was constructed in 1965; this is its first major renovation. The project will correct maintenance and code deficiencies and will accommodate program needs for both current and projected enrollments. VMDO, the project architect, and the Architect for the University have developed architectural design guidelines.

D. ASSIGNMENT OF THE PAVILION VIII APARTMENT -- A faculty committee, working out of the Provost's Office, has solicited and received applications from teaching faculty for assignment to the upper apartment in Pavilion VIII. In reviewing the applications, the committee looked most seriously at applicants who would be "good Lawn residents." The committee selected Cristina Della Coletta, Assistant Professor of Italian.


II. ACTION ITEMS

A. PRELIMINARY DESIGN, SCOTT STADIUM EXPANSION - PARKING -- The Scott Stadium Expansion project includes a parking garage at the south end of Scott Stadium in the Bryant Hall parking lot. Heery International, the project architect, in conjunction with Rich and Associates, the parking consultants, Facilities Management, and the Architect for the University, has developed the preliminary design based on the schematic design approved by the Committee on March 26, 1998. Mr. Anderson will review the design with the Committee.

B. SCHEMATIC AND PRELIMINARY DESIGN, BLANDY FARM HOUSING - To support research at Blandy Farm a site plan for a research village has been developed which could ultimately accommodate 60 to 100 people and includes cottages, dormitories, a commons building, and research facilities. We are initiating the first phase of the village with the construction of two cottages. Bushman Dreyfus Architects, the project architect, in conjunction with Facilities Management and the Architect for the University, has developed the schematic and preliminary design. Mr. Anderson will review 1) the village site plan, 2) the architectural design guidelines, and 3) the design of the cottages.
