II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The two new boilers will resolve ongoing heating problems in the facility. Clients who are on psychotropic medications are vulnerable to unpredictable fluctuations in temperature in the inpatient setting in which they are housed. A particular problem and liability for the facility are unusually high and low temperatures for clients who take certain types of medications. It is also a problem, of course, to have clients and staff having to endure extremely low temperatures that engender discomfort and possible health problems. The present system has had problems with maintaining reasonable temperatures throughout the facility creating the potential for complaints from both staff and clients. This would include energy savings and bring in the proper heating capacity needed for the facility.
Project Justification: When a low ambient temperature occurs, there is no return air and the system draws 100% outside air, which is inefficient. The current units present a violation of regulations under air quality for client comfort and safety as the clients can become agitated. This project will accomplish energy conservation and staff and client comfort. It will also assure that clients who are mentally ill and prone to violence do not become agitated and stressed due to this discomfort, causing a danger in the facility.
Project Background Information: The budget for this project in 2000 was very limited and equipment purchased was inadequate, resulting in the system failing to operate as it should. Many attempts have been made throughout the past several years to adjust the system in a manner to work, with little success.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced: two Ajak low efficiency boilers
Year existing equipment was installed: 2000
Manufacturer of existing equipment: Ajak
Model of existing equipment: unknown
Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? No
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): If requested project is not approved, the building will continue to have varying heating deficiencies. The consumer will suffer, which has resulted in formal complaints to outside entities. Deficiencies in the heating system have greatly affected energy costs.
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): Client and staff comfort will be greatly increased.
