14CSP006 - TNH - Sheffield Room 2.111 Renovation

Project Summary

The abbreviated Summary of Work is as follows:

Sheffield Room 2.111 Renovation: The University of Texas at Austin School of Law intends to renovate the Sheffield Room, a heavily used and multifunctional meeting space, along with its adjacent catering kitchen area. The project includes the demolition of an existing fireplace, interior walls, interior and exterior doors, windows, ceiling and finishes at the Sheffield Room and the demolition of cabinetry, ceiling and finishes at the catering kitchen. The full project will include upgraded Lighting, Electrical and Audio Visual infrastructure, new and altered Mechanical, new and altered Plumbing, new and altered Fire Protection, new Floor finishes, new Walls, new Ceilings, new Doors, new finishes and a new storage room as shown on the construction documents. The base bid for the renovation is focused on the Sheffield room, including entry to the existing catering kitchen, minus Add Alternates 2, 3 and 4 as described below and noted in the construction documents. Both will require accessing existing above ceiling areas west and south of the renovations that must remain visually unaltered once access and construction is complete.       

The general Construction Budget for the project is approximately: $392,000.00 to $444,000.00.
