102-1358 Library Storage Facility Phase IV

Project Resource Links

Project Summary

  • The University of Texas Libraries (UTL), Dolph Briscoe Center for American History (CAH), and the Harry Huntt Ransom Humanities Research Center (HRC), as separate UT units, acquire, maintain, and store its collections in locations on the Main Campus and at JJ Pickle Research Center (PRC). This project addresses permanent storage needs by expanding the existing Library Storage Facility at JJ Pickle Research Center with the addition of the LSF4 module and additional types of storage spaces. The new LSF4 module will total approximately 39,000 - 44,000 GSF, to include a high bay cool storage module, separate low bay cool and cold storage spaces, processing space and a new loading dock, researcher reading room, circulation spine, and public entry.
  • The approximate gross square footage requirements were derived from a 2015 master planning exercise and 2017 programming effort, and shall be validated by the design team in the programming phase.
  • The HVAC system shall be required to meet specific design specifications to maintain temperature and relative humidity conditions within the specified areas. The high-density storage module shall also require a floor flatness that matches or exceeds the facilities existing concrete floors. LSF4 flatwork shall be specified and installed to meet the ASTM E1155 Standard.
  • This project has a preliminary construction cost limitation (CCL) of $23,400,000. Fees, furnishing, equipment, other work, miscellaneous expenses, and cost of enabling sub-projects not included in the CCL comprise the PPC balance of $261,000,000.
  • The owner's goal, once the design team and contractor are on board, is to evaluate the current proposed project schedule noted in Section 2.4 in an effort to shorten the delivery duration.
