(This amendment provides supplemental funding to offset an increase in construction costs for replacement of the Chesapeake Bay Hall with a new research facility. During the 2018 General Assembly Special Session, the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) received authorization to replace Chesapeake Bay Hall (CBH) with a new 68,250 sq. ft. state-of-the-art research facility. VIMS is requesting supplemental funding in the amount of $28.25 million to offset an increase in construction costs. The Division of Engineering and Buildings continues to support replacement over renovation. VIMS has value engineered over $4 million in projected savings in an effort to reduce and re-align scope and budget. Research conducted in CBH is being jeopardized by the current building condition.)
