II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The project replaces three over twenty-year-old HVAC roof-top units and provides humidification at the Marjorie Russell Clothing and Textile Research Center necessary for maintaining life safety air quality for five staff, interns, and volunteers. The project improves conservation of sensitive clothing and textile artifacts dating back to the 1700s and includes Nevada First Lady gowns and the USS Nevada Battleship flag. Collections are managed by the Nevada State Museum, Nevada Historical Society, and Nevada State Railroad Museum. The project provides for removal and disposal of existing HVAC units.
Project Justification: Replacing three twenty-year-old HVAC units at the Marjorie Russell Clothing and Textile Research Center maintains life safety air quality for 5 staff, interns, and volunteers working at the center on a regular basis. Effective HVAC and humidification are necessary for meeting accreditation standards of the American Association of Museums for preserving sensitive clothing and textile artifacts dating back to the 1700s and includes Nevada First Lady gowns and the USS Nevada Battleship flag. Collections are managed by the Nevada State Museum, Nevada Historical Society, and Nevada State Railroad Museum. Out-dated HVAC units are not energy efficient, resulting in higher utility costs compared to current HVAC technology. Out-dated HVAC units are in need of constant repairs and are past their life expectancy.
Project Background Information: Recommended in SPWB Facility Condition Analysis Report 3-1-06, Project Index 0208HVA1. Priority Class 2.
