|Survey Item Text|
Please estimate the completion costs for repair and renovation projects of science and engineering research facilities that are funded and scheduled to start in your FY 2004 or FY 2005 and will cost over $250,000 for each field of science listed below. For multi-year projects, report the entire completion cost even if some work will occur in future years.
|If research space will be shared: Report projects with shared costs only if costs are prorated at more than $250,000 for the field. For example, if a $600,000 project included $400,000 for mathematics space and $200,000 for physics space, the $200,000 portion would not be reported. Similarly, if a $300,000 project involved space used for research only one-fourth of the time, this project of $75,000 for the research portion would not be included.|
|FY 2005 to present|
Please provide the estimated completion costs planned for repair and renovation of S&E research facilities that are funded or scheduled to start in your two upcoming FYs. Include research animal space. Include only projects whose prorated cost is estimated to be $250,000 or more for at least one S&E. For multi-year projects, report the entire completion cost even if some work will occur in future years.
|If new facilities are shared for research and nonresearch activities, report only projects with completion costs of $250,000 or more for at least one field of S&E research. For example, if a $300,000 project involves space used for research only one-fourth of the time, this project of $75,000 for the research facilities should not be reported.|
|If new facilities are shared by two or more fields of S&E, report the new construction project only if at least one field of S&E research has completion costs of $250,000 or mor. For example, if two fields share the costs equally for a research project costing $400,000, neither field's share of $200,000 meets the cost minimum.|
|Start date is the date on which the physical work on the repairs or renovations is scheduled to begin.|
|Completion costs including planning, site preparation, construction, fixed equipment, nonfixed equipment that costs $1 million or more, and building infrastructure such as plumbing, lighting, air exchange, and safety systems either in the building or within 5 feet of the building foundation.|
|Research animal space includes all departmental and central facilities, such as laboratories, housing, and associated support areas, that are subject to local, state, and federal government policies and regulations concerning humane care and use of laboratory animals.|
|Repairs and renovations refer to activities such as fixing up facilities in deteriorated condition, capital improvements on facilities, and conversion of facilities. Do not report building additions and the building out of shell space as renovations since they are reported in this survey under new construction.|
|FY 2005 to present|
|Repairs and renovations are activities such as fixing up facilities in deteriorated condition, capital improvements on facilities, conversion of facilities, and the building out of shell space. Include any repairs or renovations to existing space that are performed in combination with new construction projects. Do not report building additions since they are reported in this survey under new construction.|
|Data are available for the Fiscal Years (FYs) 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2015 surveys.|
|Dollar amounts are in thousands.|
