This project is currently in the early
design phase. A kick off meeting was held in late December with C.O.D.
representatives and the engineering consultant, Grumman/Butkus Associates.
At the Nov. 17 Board of Trustees meeting,
C.O.D. approved Grumman/Butkus to provide engineering design services
for the Infrastructure Master Plan. Grumman/Butkus issued the Final
Phase 2 report to C.O.D. on Nov. 11. Grumman/Butkus is to start the
design work for the infrastructure improvements described in the Phase
Facilities Planning and Construction and
Facilities Operations and Maintenance held a meeting with the consultant,
Grumman/Butkus Associates, on Oct. 10 to finalize the Phase 2 Report.
The final draft of the Infrastructure Master
Plan Phase 2 Report has been completed and reviewed by the committee.
The work identified in the report has been separated into stand-alone
utility improvement projects and those that will be integrated with
individual building projects. Currently, the project team is developing
an implementation plan. The next phase will be to engage the consultant
to begin stand-alone projects.The final draft report for Phase 2 of the
Infrastructure Master Plan was issued on 8/1/05. Facilities Planning
and Construction is currently reviewing this document.
The final report is being modified to include
data obtained during the surveying of the site for the Roadway, Parking
Lot and Associated Landscape Improvements project. Final reports will
be distributed in late May. Active coordination is taking place on
the ECEC and TEC projects.The Phase II coordination meeting was held
April 29. It was decided at this meeting that a second stand-alone
central plant would serve the new buildings on west campus. Final
conceptual routings were agreed to for the following systems: fiber
optics, telephone, storm water, electric, steam and chilled water.
The final report is being updated to incorporate these decisions.
The project team has finalized the telecommunications infrastructure
and phasing requirements to accommodate the new buildings on west
campus. The draft report has been reviewed and updated. Campus-wide
automated building controls systems and implementation strategies
are being evaluated. Commissioning services that will ensure building
occupancy testing and start-up are being considered. Conceptual layouts
for the following systems are being developed: a high-pressure fire
loop, a new central heating and cooling plant on the west campus,
and a storm water management system.
Phase I of the Infrastructure Master Plan is complete. This phase
focused on the assessment of the existing Glen Ellyn campus utilities
infrastructure. This included a thorough assessment of the existing
mechanical, electrical, technology and phone infrastructure. Analysis
included current systems overview, infrastructure capacities, current
operating demands, distribution and estimated new demands from the
implementation of the Facilities Master Plan.
Additionally, descriptions of the age of existing equipment and opinion
on the remaining useful life of the systems were compiled. During
Phase II, the committee will review the data and enter into discussions
to develop conceptual options for the campus infrastructure to accommodate
all new and future buildings.
