SIU BOT Approves SIUE ITS Renovations and General Contractors2013-12-12 11:51:58 SIUE.edu
The Southern Illinois University Board of Trustees today at its regularly scheduled meeting on the Carbondale campus approved renovations of the Information Technology Services (ITS) computer room in Dunham Hall on the SIU Edwardsville campus. The Board also approved retention of four area general contractors to manage various small projects at SIUE.
The $1.6 million computer room renovation will be funded by ITS fees ($600,000) and University plant fees ($1 million). Mechanical and electrical systems will be modified by replacing the heat exchangers, reconfiguring or replacing server racks, and replacing the electrical distribution and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) in the room. The current room configuration was designed for the mainframe which was decommissioned in 2009. The work will be phased to maintain network operations. A qualifications based selection (QBS) process was used to select BRiC Partnership of Belleville as the project designer.
The Board established open service contracts for general contractor services to:
As maintenance, repairs and renovation work are necessary on the SIUE campus, the approved contractors will bid to furnish all labor, equipment, tools and materials for small general construction projects. The individual projects will not exceed the formal bid limit of $76,600. The work will be funded from the project budget requiring the services.Read Full Story ...

SIUE Art & Design Building Receives AIA Architecture Award2013-12-12 10:50:57 SIUE.edu
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville?s Art and Design annex ? certified by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold building ? has captured a notable design award from the American Institute of Architects.
The $9 million, 29,000-square-foot addition, adjacent to the original facility and completed in Fall 2012, is the recipient of an AIA Central States Citation Award of Excellence in the commercial architecture category. The AIA region includes five states?Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma. St. Louis-based Trivers Associates was the project architect.
Certified by the USGBC as a LEED Gold building in September, SIUE?s Art and Design Building was awarded the AIA honor in late October. LEED?s detailed credentialing system recognizes the owner and architect?s commitment to understand and practice green building practices. To achieve certification at the Gold level, the Art and Design Building surpassed the total number of design points (60) required in these categories: sustainable sites; water efficiency; energy and atmosphere; material resources; indoor environmental quality; and designing a building that has a high level of safety and health for occupants.
This is SIUE?s first building to receive LEED Gold certification, but not the first time the AIA has honored the campus? design. In 2007, the AIA Illinois Council featured the University?s buildings among the top 150 Illinois Great Places. According to the AIA, SIUE design ranks with such popular structures as the Illinois State Capitol, the Old State Capitol, the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), Wrigley Field, the home of Abraham Lincoln and locally Cahokia Mounds.
?SIUE is committed to environmental stability both inside and outside the classroom, and the Art and Design Building is testament to that,? said SIUE Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe. ?We?re grateful to the AIA for this select honor.?
Trivers Associate Joel Fuoss, AIA LEED AP and lead designer on the SIUE project, said both the University and design firm were committed to creating a sustainable building with the utmost provisions for both health and safety.
?Safety was a huge priority for all of us,? said Fuoss, adding that a special consultant was enlisted to protect the building?s occupants ? particularly those teaching and learning art-related substances – of any potential environmental impact. ?There is off-gassing (evaporation of volatile chemicals) and other substances utilized in art creation, and they?re not to be dealt with lightly,? he said. ?As the design team, we were committed to recognizing and exemplifying the University?s goals and approach to a sustainable environment. To be recognized by the AIA for this project is truly exciting.?
The two-story building?s positioning of the drawing and painting studios on the north side of the upper floor offers artists many options for use of natural light. ?The Art and Design Building, from the core, lauds the wonderful and extensive natural environment that surrounds the SIUE campus,? Fuoss said.
The new building?s second floor also houses the art education and faculty offices, with the university?s art gallery and art history auditorium on the ground level.
More than 95 percent of the construction debris from the project was recycled or reused, according to Fuoss. Eighty-four percent of locally sourced materials also contributed to the project?s AIA commendation. ?Even the limestone for the facade was sourced within 500 miles of Edwardsville,? he said.
Incorporating the building addition?s design to complement and enhance the adjacent, original 47,000-square-foot Art and Design facility was a key design objective. ?Making the addition highly visible to engage both the campus and the community with the arts was extremely important to the University,? said Fuoss. ?The general design concept was to link to the rivers and bluffs that are prevalent in our area,? he said. ?The pedestrian flow on the addition?s western side is metaphorical to the river flows.?
SIUE?s award-winning building uses 40 percent less water than a comparable facility that is not designed according to LEED Gold standards. Additional sustainable features include: the state-of-the art heating and air conditioning systems to reduce overall energy consumption by 26 percent; the use of prairie grass in landscaping to eliminate irrigation and set aside green space for the building; and occupancy sensors to regulate lighting when spaces are not in use.Read Full Story ...

Softball HC Montgomery Contributes to NFCA Book2013-12-12 08:48:19 SIUE.edu
The book features 26 other collegiate softball coaches. It is broken up into six parts with each emphasizing a different aspect of being a head coach for an NCAA program.
Former Iowa head coach and NFCA Hall of Fame member Gayle Blevins put the book together and reached out to Montgomery to contribute.
“The first volume of this book was a pretty good seller in the softball world,” Montgomery said. “I was honored that someone of Gayle’s stature asked me to contribute.”
The Cougars head coach is the author of Chapter 23, titled ?Developing Student-Athletes off the Field.? Montgomery shares her insight on attributes that winning players should possess, such as accountability, responsibility and work ethic.
Montgomery wrote the chapter shortly after the Cougars won the 2007 NCAA Division II National Championship. She said that while that championship team wasn?t her most talented squad, it was made up of players who were accountable, disciplined and put the team first.
?You need total players and a culture established within your program,? Montgomery said.
That?s a really important concept for me, and I think it?s instrumental in winning. You need players with good character, good values and a belief in what you?re trying to do as a program.?
Quotes from former SIUE players Samantha Stanicek (2010-2013) and Kasey (Schlafke) Griffith (2008-2011) also are included as the two share their experiences under Montgomery?s tutelage.
In the book, Montgomery also discussed the importance of coaches being educators and developing student-athletes not only as players, but also as people.
?The culture we?ve established is a big reason why we don?t have many kids leave our program,” Montgomery added. ?You get sustained success with players who contribute both on and off the field. If you don?t have the foundation for your team to keep being successful together, then you?re not going to win consistently.?
The Softball Coaching Bible Volume II is available for purchase here.
Montgomery and the Cougars kick off the 2014 regular season when they travel to Baton Rouge, La., for the LSU Tournament Feb. 7-8.Read Full Story ...
