13. Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended) 00366PLM2

II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: Replace Chiller, boilers, water heater, plate and frame heat exchanger, and pumps with high efficient turbocor chiller, variable speed pumps, high efficient boilers, plate and frame heat exchanger, and water heaters. The chilled water system will have the three way valves replaced throughout the building with two way valves to make the system variable speed. Pumps will be replaced with high efficient pumps with variable speed drives to operate the chilled water loop and hot water loop. Evaluate the chilled and hot water piping to be re-piped in a more applicable layout. The existing water heaters are to be replaced with 97% efficient water heater and the load is to be reevaluated to provide the correct size system.
2. Project Justification: As of 2014 the central plant equipment at Clark County Armory is 17 years old and reaching the end of their service life and operational life. The makeup air units located on facility are direct fired that have caused a life and safety issues with creating high levels of carbon monoxide unsafe for building occupants. The Chiller and water heaters are continuously failing and requiring countless hours of maintenance to keep operational. As time continues replacement and repair parts will become very hard to come by. The current units waste a considerable amount of energy compared to high efficient models of today. Additionally the chiller operates with R-22 refrigerant. R-22 has been mandated by the federal government to be 75 percent phased out by 2010. This R-22 refrigerant that is available is grossly overpriced, if state maintenance can find it, which is a gross waste of tax dollars
3. Project Background Information: When the central plant fails the temperatures in the armory become excessive (especially in the summer.) This places greater stress on the individuals’ physical health and contributes to the space to become in-occupiable therefore hindering the National Guards ability to respond to state emergency where they are critically involved.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced:
b. Year existing equipment was installed: 1997
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
d. Model of existing equipment:
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? No
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): If the equipment fails the condition inside the building will become un-occupiable and loss of employee production. The occupants will have to relocate another facility until system is replaced or repaired. This would be a costly and unrealistic endeavor. State maintenance can possibly a unit here and there over the years but that would put a strain on their already tight/strained budget that is used to maintain all equipment across the state. If maintenance has to replace the equipment, it would be done in a patch work system with the multiple brands of equipment not designed for the spaces it services by a professional engineer
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): When the central plant fails the temperatures in the armory become excessive especially in the summer. This places greater stress on the individuals’ physical health and contributes to the space to become in-occupied therefore hindering the National Guards ability to respond to state emergency where they are critically involved.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
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? 2016
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? The useful service life of the existing equipment.
