The project upgrades the existing exit corridors and existing systems, upgrades RR and paths to meet ADA, re-routes mechanical and plumbing systems to isolate the East Wing from the seismically deficient North/South Wing. The project will facilitate closure of the North/South Wing per CA State SB 1953 seismic mandates.
This infrastructure work is a minor alteration of an existing structure. The project would improve building systems and circulation space. The project does not expand the building area. The project would have no potential to result in potentially significant impacts and would result in no exceptions to the exemption.
