Project Description
Project Number: 15-003
Project Name: Addition of Café at SenSpa Building 1161
Planning District: Letterman
Project Type: Rehabilitation/TI
CE Applied: Rehabilitation or improvement of historic properties
CE Date: 11/18/2014
Project Description:
Building 1161 is a former warehouse (circa 1919) rehabilitated into a spa by the existing tenant, SenSpa, in 2005 (05-015). This project will convert an existing lounge and meeting space into a café that will serve beverages and pre-packaged food. All additions, including a food service counter, sink, refrigerator, partition wall with shoji screen door with panels, and new flooring, will be installed in a manner that is fully reversible. Selective demolition and infill of non-historic walls will be necessary to accommodate or remove doors. The project will not alter or damage existing historic finishes including original warehouse walls (behind new sheetrock), rafters and wood plank flooring.

Project Number: 15-001
Project Name: Building 1756 New Warehouse at Trust Corporate Yard
Planning District: South Hills
Project Type: Building Use
CE Applied: Rehabilitation or improvement of non-historic properties
CE Date: 10/23/2014
Project Description:
The Trust currently stores building maintenance and repair materials in building 643 in the Crissy Field district (Area B). Building 643 must be vacated, which requires the storage operation be moved to a new facility. The fenced area north of and abutting non-historic building 1752 (former Army motor pool maintenance shop, part of an isolated complex of buildings constructed in 1970) within the Trust corporate yard will allow the Trust to consolidate materials delivery and storage operations with existing warehousing operations. The area is currently occupied by a non-historic 2,134 square-foot metal carport structure, which will be replaced by a new 3,400 square-foot warehouse (the PTMP permits new small structures and replacement construction in the South Hills “to serve the management needs of the park”). The pre-engineered, clear-span building is designed to maximize interior efficiency and optimize truck unloading access. Construction will include the abandonment of an existing cast-iron water lateral and a new connection to the water main, demolition and recycling of the existing carport and asphalt-concrete paving, new footings and slab, and erection of the building. Electrical, heating, fire suppression, fire alarm and access control system, loading door and main door, and other features will be installed in the new warehouse. The new warehouse will be clad in metal siding with a roof-type compatible with the adjacent building, and dark-sky compliant light fixtures will be used. All work will conform to current applicable Trust codes, guidelines and standards.

Project Number: 14-046
Project Name: New Entrance to Building D Restaurant in Letterman Digital Arts Center
Planning District: Letterman
Project Type: Rehabilitation/TI
CE Applied: Rehabilitation or improvement of non-historic properties
CE Date: 10/21/2014
Project Description:
This project will construct a new entrance to the currently vacant first floor restaurant in building D at the Letterman Digital Arts Center. The primary entrance addition to the facility will include a ramp, stair, canopy and patio. The patio will be constructed around an existing redwood tree, which will be protected during construction.

Project Number: 14-016
Project Name: Mountain Lake Fish Eradication
Planning District: South Hills
Project Type: Vegetation Restoration
CE Applied: Removal of non-threatened or endangered species
CE Date: 10/1/2014
Project Description:
As part of an adaptive management plan to reintroduce native vegetation and wildlife in Mountain Lake, the Trust will apply a botanical fish toxicant to the lake to remove all fish from the lake including sediment-foraging carp and predator bass. The presence of these and other invasive fish in the lake prevents the successful reintroduction of native species and the overall restoration of the lake. The Trust has unsuccessfully used mechanical means such as nets and electrical current to eradicate fish from the lake. CFT Legumine, which contains the active ingredient Rotenone, will be used as the fish toxicant. Rotenone is a botanical material that degrades very quickly in water. A single treatment of CFT Legumine applied during the fall of 2014 will likely be successful in eradicating all fish from the lake. The lake will be monitored for Rotenone following treatment.

Project Number: 14-049
Project Name: Ralston Sanitary Sewer Upgrades
Planning District: Fort Scott
Project Type: Infrastructure
CE Applied: Installation of underground utilities
CE Date: 9/26/2014
Project Description:
This project addresses deficiencies within the Trust’s sanitary sewer system serving the west side of Fort Scott to support planned redevelopment of buildings in the district. The work scope entails repairing and/or replacing the sanitary sewer on Ralston Street from building 1203 bisecting Storey Avenue and extending north on Miller Road. Work will be performed with a typical excavation and trench approach or with a minimally invasive pipe-burst method which reduces the amount of excavation necessary. The interiors of existing manholes will be rehabilitated and spot repairs made at discrete pipe locations. Portions of the project boundaries are within a known LUC site. Excavated soil will be tested for potential contaminants and reused as backfill subject to approval by the Trust Remediation Program Manager or disposed at a permitted, offsite landfill in accordance with state and federal law. Tree protection measures as outlined by the Presidio Trust Forester will be followed for trees adjacent to the excavation areas.

Project Number: 14-048
Project Name: Building 39, Suite 310 Tenant Improvement
Planning District: Main Post
Project Type: Rehabilitation/TI
CE Applied: Rehabilitation or improvement of historic properties
CE Date: 9/26/2014
Project Description:
The project is a tenant improvement of a third floor (attic) office suite of non-residential building 39 (Sixth Army Headquarters, built 1940). The work includes selective demolition of non-historic, partial height partitions; construction of new interior partitions, interior office windows, doors, frames and hardware; and painting, carpet, finishes and wood floors. The project scope will provide tenant with a new break room, copy printer room, and storage/server room.

Project Number: 14-047
Project Name: Building 58 Rear Porch Enclosure
Planning District: Main Post
Project Type: Rehabilitation/TI
CE Applied: Rehabilitation or improvement of historic properties
CE Date: 9/24/2014
Project Description:
The back porch of building 58 (Funston Avenue Officer Family Housing, built 1885) is a secondary space whose size and footprint has been altered over time to accommodate changing needs, and was last rebuilt 8 years ago as part of a neighborhood rehabilitation project (06-039). This project will enlarge (by 42 square feet) and enclose the porch for additional storage space. The work includes the selective removal of the existing deck, construction of the new deck, three new footings, an enlarged landing, reconstructed stairs and railings, an extended shed roof to match existing roof in dimension and profile, and enclosure porch with simple 1/1 wood frame windows and a door. Work will match existing construction and appearance and will be performed by Trust crews and contract workers with Trust oversight.

Project Number: 14-045
Project Name: Fort Scott Parking Regulations at Ralston and Upton
Planning District: Fort Scott
Project Type: Transportation/Parking
CE Applied: Repair of roads and parking facilities
CE Date: 8/25/2014
Project Description:
As Fort Scott becomes more active, parking management is necessary to ensure that parking supply remains adequate into the future. In 2013, parking regulations were implemented along Storey Avenue, in the parking lot in front of Building 1208, the parking lot serving the Log Cabin (13-038), and again in 2014 at the CNG lot located off of Lincoln Boulevard (14-014). This project will install parking machines to vend parking permits and associated regulatory signage along Battery Wagner Road and along Upton Avenue and Ralston Avenue between buildings 1227 and 1230. Parking along Battery Wagner Road will be regulated every day from 8am-6pm for Zones P and 9, which will allow Storey Avenue residents to continue to use this area for overflow parking. The rest of the area will be regulated similar to other areas of Fort Scott (every day from 8am-6pm) and zoned as Zone 9.

Project Number: 14-041
Project Name: North Fort Scott Residential Neighborhood Landscape Enhancements
Planning District: Fort Scott
Project Type: Landscaping/Site Work
CE Applied: Landscaping and landscape maintenance
CE Date: 8/25/2014
Project Description:
This neighborhood landscape enhancement project is part of ongoing efforts to upgrade all residential neighborhood landscapes to support Trust sustainability, aesthetic and planning goals. The scope of work includes select tree removal (16 mature eucalyptus trees in the Ramsel Court area), new concrete patios associated with most buildings, and the addition of ornamental plantings at the entrys and in areas visible from the streets. The design will build upon the mid-century modern aesthetic of the the structures and will include plants from Australia and South Africa. While the non-historic North Fort Scott neighborhood (2-story, multi-unit residential buildings constructed in 1970) does not contribute to the NHLD, its context within the larger NHL and adjacent VMP areas has been taken into consideration in the design approach. The work will be coordinated with planned landscape replacement/enhancement along the Doyle Drive construction corridor. Landscaping of Lendrum Court will be reviewed as a separate project following completion of soil remediation.

Project Number: 14-042
Project Name: Soil Sampling Workplan for Lendrum Court
Planning District: Fort Scott
Project Type: Remediation
CE Applied: Improvements to meet disabled access requirements
CE Date: 8/25/2014
Project Description:
Trenching and sampling of the Lendrum Court residential neighborhood is required to determine the extent of Army-era waste debris present. Sampling will allow for the development of remedial alternatives and designs to address the debris in a manner protective of human health and the environment per guidance by the Department of Toxic Substance Control. Approximately 20 test pits will be excavated near the 20 residential buildings around Lendrum Court to evaluate the extent of debris present. Test pits are planned to be approximately 18 inches wide, up to 8 feet long, and 5 feet deep. Test pits will be excavated using a subcontractor-operated mini-excavator. Soil will be returned to the test pits and compacted by wheel rolling on the same day as it is excavated. To allow access for test pits, undergrowth and small brush in the dense forest north of and around Lendrum Court will be cut to approximately 6 inches above ground surface. This will allow visual observation of ground, distinctions in topography, and exposure of debris, while still leaving roots and some ground cover in place to limit soil erosion. Trees will remain in place to provide canopy and visual screening for residents. Tree protection measures will be incorporated in the vegetation removal plans. Tenants and neighbors have been consulted in public meetings, public outreach is ongoing, and the project is posted on the Trust’s website.
