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).
Has this project been previously requested in a prior CIP? Yes
SPWD 4 digit Building No. (for existing buildings) 9985
Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended) 6-26-06
II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The scope of this project is to allow starting of equipment, monitoring of status, monitoring of space temperatures, monitoring and control of hot and chilled water temperatures, and similar typical centrally controlled elements. The system should include a microprocessor control center which monitors and manages all components of the building HVAC system. The system should also have the capability of controlling other building systems (such as lighting, alarms, etc.) and of communicating with the central management system for the campus. The project will be located at the NNAMHS campus, Sparks’s campus. This project would have to start at level 1 Design phase and move into Construction.
Project Justification: The State Public Works Board (SPWB) Facility Condition Analysis report completed 6/26/2006 identified this project as project index #: 9985HVA1. Presently the NNAMHS campus has no digital control (DDC) supervisory control or automated energy management control programs. Future HVAC considerations should include installation of appropriate hardware to connect any new building to the campus energy management network while maintaining local control logic. This project is strongly recommended by the SPWB for the sake of retention of the relatively new pneumatic equipment, the application of a DDC/pneumatic hybrid system.
Project Background Information: Work is scheduled to begin on the HVAC replacement that was funded in the 2009/2011 biennium to buildings on the NNAMHS campus. Both of these projects are related to this project as it completes the process and ties the systems together in one place.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced:
Year existing equipment was installed:
Manufacturer of existing equipment:
Model of existing equipment:
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 ramification if this project is not funded is that the agency will not have the ability to manage the HVAC systems on the NNAMHS campus from one place. Staff would have to manage the systems from each building which could potentially become a problem for quick access in an emergency.
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):
