Has this project been previously requested in a prior CIP? No
SPWD 4 digit Building No. (for existing buildings) 0862,0197
Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended)
II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The scope of this project is to replace the phase IV central plant equipment which includes the cooling tower, three boilers, circulation pumps, associated water loop piping, a plate heat exchanger and associated DDC controls. The project also includes replacement of various rootop package units in Phase III and several lab fume hoods in Phase II. Additional chemical exhaust hoods are also needed.
Project Justification: Phase II, III and IV were completed in 1976, 1980 and 1987 respectively. The existing systems are original and require frequent repairs. Replacement parts are increasingly difficult to locate and occupants in these areas frequenly complain of comfort issues. Additionally, the existing equipment is inefficient and the new replacement eqiuipment would be more efficient.
Project Background Information: The Red Mountain building was constructed in six separate phases starting in 1976. The heating and cooling equipment in Phases II, III and IV of the building are past their useful lives and should be replaced. In addition this equipment was recommended to be replaced in our ISES Facilities Condiiton Assessment. In 2012 the central plant for Phase II and some of the rooftop units in Phase III of the building are being replaced using student capital fee funding.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced: rooftop heater, AC units, boilers, cooling tower
Year existing equipment was installed: 1980 roof top units, 1987 boilers & cooling tower
Manufacturer of existing equipment: Heater - Reznor, Boilers - Rite, AC - Carrier
Model of existing equipment: Boilers model # 150LL, others various
Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement?
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): The HVAC components are 25 - 35 years old and are passed the end of their service lives and require frequent mainenance. If the system breaks down much of the building will be unusable unil new equipment is installed which would be very disruptive to students, faculty and staff.
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): With out proper heating and air parts of the building would would not be be able to be occupied.
