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). 4
11. Has this project been previously requested in a prior CIP? No
12. SPWD 4 digit Building No. (for existing buildings) Building No.:1686; Site No.: 9814
13. Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended)
14. Is the property State Owned? Yes

II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: This project would provide funding to replace all existing central plant equipment including, boilers, cooling tower, pumps, heat exchanger, local-zone water source heat pumps, domestic water heater, central plant space heater and upgrade existing automated building control system. In particular replace existing high temperature boilers with high efficiency condensing boilers for the low temperature heat pump building water loop. Revise outside combustion air delivery from open space louver to direct boiler ducting. Upgrade all water loop pumps with premium efficiency pumps and motors.
2. Project Justification: The Vista Building and Child Care Center were constructed in 1992. Existing heating, air conditioning and ventilation equipment is approaching the end of service life and will be 25 years old if the project could be completed 2017. Further the newer systems requested would significantly reduce utility costs and energy consumption. These buildings house the Early Child Hood Development, Math, English and Student tutoring and Learning Resource programs.
3. Project Background Information: One central plant serves both buildings with tempered water for local-zone water source heat pumps. These buildings house the Early Child Hood Development, Math, English and Student Tutoring and Learning programs. The age and inefficiency of the existing equipment make replacement essential.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced: Mechanical
b. Year existing equipment was installed: 1992
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: Multiple see list in line twelve
d. Model of existing equipment: Multiple see list in line twelve
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? Unknown
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): If the system fails, math and English classes would be cancelled and the Child Care Center would need to be closed until repairs could be made which may be complicated due to the system's age and availability of replacement parts.
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):
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Yes
Explain: Depending on the length of time HVAC systems are down and time of year some programs may need to be relocated to other facilities.
b. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project?
c. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 2017-08-15
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? Equipment age and condition
