At the Department level ranking of this project:
The Department will rank their projects 1 through the lowest ranked project (i.e., If 5 projects were submitted by the Department a ranking of 1 would be assigned to the most important or most needed project and a ranking of 5 would be the least needed project). 3
Has this project been previously requested in a prior CIP? Yes
SPWD 4 digit Building No. (for existing buildings) 9924
Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended) 0277HVA1
II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: This project would provide for installation of a new central HVAC system to provide conditioning for the entire building. The new system will most likely include altering the existing duct work and adding new duct work. This project includes removal and disposal of the existing HVAC units and all required connections to utilities. This also includes an energy management system to be installed as part of this project.
Project Justification: There are fourteen separate HVAC units servicing the building. They were installed at various times, but are all at least twenty years old. Each unit serves a particular portion of the building which causes the conditioned spaces to be unbalanced and forces some of the units to be overworked. These older units are not energy efficient, don’t meet code and some are original to the building dating back to the 1960’s. They have reached the end of their expected and useful life. Many have been identified as having rusting or even very close to have cracked heat exchangers.
Project Background Information: The Department of Wildlife’s headquarters building was constructed in early 1960’s. Some of the furnaces are original to the building. Some of the HVAC units are from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s with standing pilots and are not energy efficient.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced: Packaging units and split systems.
Year existing equipment was installed: 60’s, 70’s and 80’s
Manufacturer of existing equipment: The manufacturer of existing equipment varies.
Model of existing equipment: Many
Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): The heat exchangers will crack and the units will have to be shut down.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): Under the current circumstances a faulty heat exchanger can have serious health effects. In the worst-case scenarios, Carbon Monoxide (CO) has caused individuals in a building filled with leaking CO to fall into a permanent sleep and die. CO is colorless and odorless and works very fast in high concentration. A concentration of 1500 PPM can kill in 15 minutes.
