I. Administrative Section 
1. Project Name: Dini Townsend Hospital Building 25 HVAC project
2. Project Description (One Sentence): This is a project to update the direct digital controls (DDC), correcting a cooling tower loop flaw and replacing integral chiller controls.
3a. Project Location: County: Washoe
3b. Project Location: City: Sparks
4. Department (department requesting project): DHHS
5. Division (division requesting project): MH/DS
6. Agency (agency requesting project): NNAMHS
7. Agency contact person: Kurt Green
8. Contact phone: 775.688.2030
9. Contact email: kgreen@health.nv.gov
The Department ranking of this project:
10. 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).
11. Has this project been previously requested in a prior CIP? No
12. SPWD 4 digit Building No. (for existing buildings) 2449
13. Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended)
14. Is the property State Owned? Yes
15. If the facility is existing, is it State owned? Yes
II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: This project will replace all the hardware/software of the temperature control system DDC with an updated version of controls for the hospital and new integral controls for the chiller as well as the correction of a flaw on the cooling tower loop piping.
2. Project Justification: The HVAC DDC hardware/software for Dini-Townsend hospital is outdated and experiencing communication/performance problems. The chiller integral controls are no longer supported and availability of parts is limited and costly. The cooling tower has a design flaw that causes cavitation of the condenser pumps.
3. Project Background Information: Dini-Townsend hospital was built in 2000 and operates 24/7. The DDC control system and chiller are original.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced: electronic circuit boards and associated equipment
b. Year existing equipment was installed: 2000
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: delta controls and carrier
d. Model of existing equipment: various delta circuit boards-carrier chiller
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? No
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Dini-Townsend hospital will continue to have temperature related problems that will become more serious with time due to the failings of the older electronic equipment. The ability of the hvac operator to monitor and rectify problems will become nearly impossible without reliable communication to the system. The chiller has integral controls that are no longer supported and parts are limited, costly and have long lead times. The cooling tower loop problem causes high head pressure problems that can lead to costly repairs and system shutdown.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
6. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): The ability of the hospital to maintain acceptable temperatures is essential to health and safety of our clients and staff. Health problems and sensitivity to their medications in association with temperature problems presents issues that are detrimental to the treatment of clients and comfort of staff.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
Explain:
b. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
c. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 06/30/2017
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? Availability of funding and the health and well being of clients and staff along with the lack of reliability with the current system. In addition, costly repairs cause budgetary issues.
