In order to meet its workload requirements and absorb new workloads, the Software Engineering Division at Hill Air Force Base AFB proposes to expand Building 1515. The building, first constructed in 1988, is designed to easily accept modular additions. The proposed work would add two sections, each identical to the existing three sections, to the south side of the building. The existing parking area south of Building 1515 would be demolished and new parking areas would be established along the west and south sides of the additions. This Environmental Assessment analyzes the potential environmental impacts of the Proposed Actionconstructing the additions, and the No Action Alternative. In the Proposed Action, the construction would occur in two phases. In phase 1, one addition and a parking area expansion would take place. Phase 2, to be completed in the following fiscal year, would add a second, equal, building addition and further expand the parking area. Under the No Action Alternative, no construction would occur and the Software Engineering Division would not be able to meet its required workload, nor would it be able to absorb new workload. A summary of the impacts from the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative is provided in Table ES-1. It is not anticipated that the Proposed Action would have significant adverse environmental impacts. However, the No Action Alternative would not address the Software Engineering Division s workload concerns.
