BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Boiler number 5 has produced high-pressure steam for campus use since 1956. During this time, the boiler has used coal, fuel oil, natural gas, and was then converted to use coal again. The superheater tubes are located in the hottest area of the boiler and during these 37 years of operation have been subjected to internal corrosion, external erosion by fly ash, and metal fatigue stresses resulting from heatup and cool down of the boiler. These forces have caused tube leaks forcing shutdown of the boiler and extended delays in returning the boiler back to operation. The replacement of 24 tubes will greatly enhance reliability and safe, efficient operation of the boiler. The upper roof will be removed for the superheater tube replacement, and a new design, tight roof casing, recommended by the boiler supplier will be installed. Funds are available from the institutional funds budget of the Operation and Maintenance Division at the Urbana campus. A schedule of the bids received has been filed with the secretary of the board for record.
On motion of Mr. Lamont, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Dr. Gindorf, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Lopez, Ms. Reese; no, none; absent, Governor Edgar. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, Ms. Huff, Mr. Riley; no, none.)
Supplemental Funding, Demolition and Renovation, Campus Core, Lecture Center, and Forum Area, Chicago (Contract With Capital Development Board)
(18) On January 16, 1992, the Board of Trustees requested the Capital Development Board to employ the firm of Daniel P. Coffey & Associates, Ltd., Chicago, for Phase I of the campus core upgrade project at the Chicago campus. The original scope of work for this project includes correction of inadequate exterior drainage by removing existing pavement and installing new paving materials, installing new lighting, improving landscaping materials, site furnishings and graphics, cleaning and repairing concrete and glass surfaces, painting trim and doors, and complying with handicapped accessibility and other applicable codes. The Chicago campus has recently identified funds which can be made available for additional demolition work and renovation of the interiors of the existing Lecture Center. The demolition work, estimated to cost $75,000, consists of demolition and removal of circular ramps west of University Hall and the bridge structure between University Hall and the Behavioral Sciences Building. Improvements to the Lecture Room interiors, estimated to cost $1,037,950, consist primarily of new ceiling-lighting system, flooring, and seating in the lecture rooms; and repairs, painting, etc., in four existing rest rooms that serve the lecture complex. State statutes provide that the Capital Development Board and the University may contract with each other and other parties on the design and construction of any project to be constructed on University property. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the University now contract with the Capital Development Board to complete the work described above at an additional cost of $1,112,950 for the demolition work and renovation in the campus core, Lecture Center, and Forum area at the Chicago campus. University funds are available from the institutional funds budget of the Chicago campus.
On motion of Mr. Lamont, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Dr. Gindorf,
