2004 Proposed Projects
<-- Back to Access MD Program Home
|| Widen doorways and install new doors and hardware to rooms 1101, 1102,
1110, 1116, and 1120. Update interior signage.
||The Memorial Chapel is inarguably one of the most public facilities on
the campus. Existing doorways are not wide enough to allow wheelchair passage
into a student lounge area, the main office, a meeting room, a small chapel,
and a larger chapel. Many weddings are held in the larger chapel. This project
is in response to a specific complaint to the Campus' Disability Support
Service and at the request of the Director of Conferences & Visitors
Services. In addition, the existing interior signs do not comply with current
ADA guidelines. The Chapel's limited revenue received from rental of its
facility is insufficient to fund these much needed modifications.
||Computer & Space Sciences Building
||Modify numerous toilet rooms (original building: B0219, 0217, 0221, 1217,
1221, 2217, 2221, 3217, 3221, 4217, & 4221; new building: 1414, 1438,
2406, 2442, 3406, 3443, 4410, & 4452) and replace drinking fountains
(original building: 1290, 2198, 2290, 3198, 3290, and 4290).
||The toilets located on principal classroom/laboratory floors of the originally
constructed building were designed and constructed using accessibility standards
that are now obsolete. In addition, noncompliant faucet levers needs to
be replaced in a few toilet rooms within the newer addition. Only toilet
rooms adjacent to the elevator will be renovated to comply with current
design standards. The drinking fountains in the originally constructed building
also will be replaced to provide accessible drinking water service to the
high volume of students, faculty, and visitor traffic.
||Provide an accessible unisex toilet room, parking space, and ramp.
||The Observatory hosts periodic public events. However, the facility does
not have proper parking, access, and restroom to accommodate wheelchair
||Replace drinking fountain (2101).
||The existing drinking fountain in this academic building is not accessible
||Provide one new women's toilet room on first floor and modify existing
men's toilet room (1117MT).
||There are no accessible women's toilet rooms in the building which has
classrooms, faculty offices, and research labs. The listed men's toilet
room on the main floor of the building has been partially renovated over
several years but remains not fully accessible. This project will provide
a set of toilet rooms fully compliant with current design standards.
||Modify men's toilet rooms (1102A, 2102A, 3104, and 4102).
||The building houses toilets that are nominally accessible since they were
designed and installed using obsolete standards. These improvements will
provide facilities that are compliant with current accessibility standards.
||Engineering Annex (formerly called Engineering Research Building)
||Modify toilet rooms (0102, 0104, 0201E, and 0201F).
||The only toilet rooms in this academic building which includes staff and
GA offices, research laboratories, open labs, and a classroom do not comply
with current accessibility standards. Due to the configuration and condition
of the toilet rooms, a significant amount of work is required to make them
ADA compliant. Therefore, each restroom will be gutted and constructed anew.
||Replace drinking fountains (0299, 1299, 2299, and 3299).
||The existing drinking fountains located on each floor of the building
are not accessible. Considering the high volume of student and faculty traffic,
the drinking fountain replacement is a high priority.
