s 20418. Normal Public Construction Costs and Excessive Costs.


(a) Architect's projected construction cost estimate and conceptual
plans.A projected construction cost estimate for a conversion,
addition/renovation, remodeling or new project shall be provided by
architects and engineers. Conceptual plans shall be submitted justifying
the architectural and engineering estimate of the projected construction
cost. The normal public construction costs in the applicant's area shall
be determined using the methods specified in sections 20418(b)(1)-(4) for
remodeling and sections 20418(c)(1)-(7) for new construction.

(b) Normal public construction costs in the applicants area for
remodeling.

(1) The normal public construction costs in the applicant's area
for the remodeling portion of conversion, addition/renovation or
remodeling projects shall be only the eligible construction project
costs portion of the projected construction cost estimate provided
by architects and engineers. In addition to the projected
construction cost estimate, architects and engineers shall also
provide the eligible projected construction cost estimate for the
remodeling portion of conversion, addition/renovation or remodeling
projects.


(2) Remodeling, conversion, and addition/renovation projects shall
submit:


(A) An engineering study performed by a licensed engineer which
assesses the structural integrity of the existing building; and


(B) An asbestos survey which determines the presence of asbestos
containing materials in the building and provides an initial cost
estimate for the safe removal or abatement of the materials. The
building survey for asbestos containing materials shall be performed
by an asbestos consultant registered with the California
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (CAL/OSHA); and


(C) For energy conservation projects, an energy audit performed by
a licensed engineer shall be submitted; and


(D) For projects which involve rehabilitation for health and safety
purposes, the architect shall cite specific sections of State
Statutes, State Building Codes and local building codes which
demonstrate that the existing building is in need of rehabilitation
for health and safety purposes.


(3) For remodeling and conversion projects, an eligible contingency
not to exceed twenty percent of the eligible projected construction
cost for remodeling may be utilized in the project budget.


(4) For addition/renovation projects, an eligible contingency not
to exceed fifteen percent of the eligible projected construction
cost of the new construction, and an eligible contingency not to
exceed twenty percent of the eligible projected construction cost
for remodeling, may be utilized in the project budget.


(c) Normal public construction costs in the applicant's area for new
construction.

(1) For new construction, the calculation of the normal public
construction cost in the applicant's area shall be based on the
current (1991) cost of public library buildings, which shall be
$115.20 per square foot. This figure does not include costs for land
acquisition, site development, demolition, works of art, shelving
and built-in equipment, or movable furnishings and equipment.


(2) The current cost shall be modified utilizing the following
"California Locality Adjustment Table by County." The current cost
figure is multiplied by the factor in the adjustment table to obtain
the locally adjusted cost of public library buildings.

(3) The locally adjusted cost shall then be increased by 1/3
percent per month for each month from the State Librarian's deadline
for application until the anticipated date of construction bids for
the project. This figure shall be the eligible projected
construction cost. This figure, or a lesser amount, shall be
utilized as the normal construction cost in the applicant's area
unless justification for a higher figure can be made based upon
recent local bidding experience.


(4) At the applicant's option, this eligible projected construction
cost figure may be increased by averaging the construction contract
costs for a minimum of three comparable public construction projects
bid within two years of the State Librarian's deadline for
application. If three comparable public construction project bids
cannot be found within two years of the State Librarian's deadline
for application, this locally determined comparable cost approach
cannot be utilized by the applicant.


(5) "Comparable public construction projects" shall be post
offices, museums, courthouses, city halls, auditoriums, community
college and public libraries, senior citizens centers, public
schools and recreation centers.


(6) The locally determined comparable cost figure shall be averaged
with the eligible projected construction cost to obtain the revised
eligible projected construction cost figure, which shall be
considered to be the normal public construction cost in the
applicant's area.


(7) For projects with new construction, an eligible contingency not
to exceed fifteen percent of the eligible projected construction
cost may be utilized in the project budget.


(d) Certification of excessive costs. For projects where the projected
construction cost exceeds the eligible projected construction cost, the
applicant shall provide certification in the form of a resolution
demonstrating the capability to finance the supplemental funds necessary
to construct the project at the higher cost (See section 20416 (a)). The
resolution shall also guarantee that the required local matching and
supplemental funds necessary to complete the project at the level stated
in the project budget will be made available for the project in a timely
manner.

(e) Project budget. The project budget shall include all expenditures for
eligible project costs, as well as any other capital outlay expenditures
directly related to the library construction project. In addition, the
project budget shall show the sources of all funding including state
matching, local matching, and local supplemental funding. The project
budget, specified in the library project budget section of the
application, shall be certified by resolution of the governing body of the
applicant (See section 20416. (a)).
