13CMR002 - Emergency Communication Systems - The University of Texas at Austin

Project Summary

DESCRIPTION, SCOPE AND BUDGET: The University is developing plans to provide voice and equivalent communication within buildings on its various campuses with a multi-phased installation of emergency communication systems within the University buildings and spaces.  Communication systems are intended to provide voice and equivalent information to campus occupants from central and local locations both for general information and for emergency direction.  Each building/space may require unique adaptation of existing resources to maximize effectiveness.  General construction management will be required to manage multiple trades including electrical, fire alarm, public address, masonry, drywall, painting and other sub-contractors.

ESTIMATED CONSTRUCTION VALUE: The initial phases are budgeted at $3,000,000.00.  GMP packages will be issued as funding is assigned annually anticipated to extend for at least three years.

SCHEDULE AND PHASING: Phased installation of communication systems will be prioritized to reach the largest number of occupants while managing physical and fiscal restraints.
