The proposed project involves the replacement and repair of the Administration Building's elevator equipment located at the District's Administration Building in the City of San Diego. The Administration Building's four elevators were originally manufactured and installed in 1942. Elevators #2, #3, and #4 were modernized with new controllers, motor drives, door operator, signal fixtures, and other related equipment in 1994. Elevator #1 still has the original equipment and is currently not operational. Furthermore, the elevators are nearing the end of their useful life and are in need of replacement.
The proposed project will replace major equipment of the four elevators. Specifically, the work will include installation of new elevator operating systems, auxiliary operations, traction equipment noise and vibration control, wiring and traveling cables, door operating equipment, passenger hoistway entrances, traction hoistway equipment, fixtures, car enclosures and other related elevator works. The proposed project will not result in an increase of occupancy load.
Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to commence in November 2015 and be completed by June 2016, for a total construction period of approximately seven months. It is anticipated that the proposed project will generate a total of approximately 10 vehicle trips during construction. Vehicle trips during construction. Vehicle trips are associated with delivery of new equipment and removal of exiting equipment. Due to its limited scope, construction of the new proposed project will generate a minor amount of vehicle trips and will there not result in any significant impacts including, but not limited to, air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, noise, or transportation and traffic. Furthermore, the applicant will be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regulating construction demolition debris, noise, and storm water.
The project is determined to be Categorically Exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 (Existing Facilities) and/or 15302 (Replacement or Reconstruction) and Sections 3.a (9) and/or 3.b (2) of the District's Guidelines for compliance with CEQA because it is the repair and replacement of equipment for four existing elevators that would involve no expansion of use beyond that previously existing and would be located on the same site and have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure being replaced.
