II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: The scope of this project, a collaborative capital undertaking with support from federal, local and community support, would complete renovations of the TMCC IGT Applied Technology Center. This project would address essential outstanding deferred maintenance and capital renewal issues and enhancements to the applied technology programs supported by the facility. Specifically completing the project includes addressing remaining building envelope elements, HVAC deficiencies, and renovation of classrooms, class labs and faculty offices.
2. Project Justification: The facility was constructed in 1976 and retains many of its original exterior bay doors. The instructional auto and diesel shops utilize high-flow exhaust systems without make-up air necessary to temper supply air. Heating systems in part of the building are insufficient to maintain temperature and provide fresh air. Building finishes are original (since 1976) or in need of replacement since a 1998 remodel. The TMCC IGT Applied Technology Center is the region's workforce training facility for Automotive and Diesel Technicians, HVAC/R, Machining, Production and Industrial Systems, Renewable Energy, and Welding. These programs are developed with input from local industry and directly meet the needs of the regional workforce as defined by the state's economic development plan. The center's advanced shops and instructional labs facilitate hands-on training for in-demand careers.
3. Project Background Information: This project was initiated by TMCC through funding from a U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration grant, HECC/SHECC funds, student fees and donor support. Work funded to date (approximately $5 million dollars) includes construction of additional classrooms, construction of a logistics lab, construction of additional restrooms, renovation of existing restrooms, construction of student study space, correcting ADA deficiencies, repaving of the equipment storage yard, construction of an equipment storage facility, and exterior improvements on two sides of the building.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced: Mechanical
b. Year existing equipment was installed: 1976
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: Varies
d. Model of existing equipment: Varies
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement?
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Auto and diesel instructional labs utilize exhaust systems which discharge up to 42,800 CFM without make-up air systems providing tempered replacement air. With closed doors, this condition impedes emergency egress due to excessive negative building pressures and causes water pipes to freeze when doors are open in winter to balance air flow. Classroom environments will continue to be compromised due to poor air quality, inadequate temperature control and excessive noise from unit heaters.
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): This project would address fire egress issues caused by high negative building air pressures restricting the opening of exterior doors while exhaust systems operate. Classroom and office interior air quality issues would be addressed by upgrading unit heaters with conventional rooftop HVAC systems that provide outside air. Fire riser located in the machine shop/lab is accessible to students and subject to tampering.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Yes
Explain: While spaces are renovated and new equipment is installed, personnel and equipment will need to be relocated. Construction may be phased to facilitate internal relocations and avoid significant offsite moves
b. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? Yes
c. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 08/14/2017
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? Deadline for completion of construction funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration project grant and correspond to the beginning of the fall 2017 semester.
III. Preliminary Construction and Funding Sources Section 
Preliminary Construction Cost Estimate and Funding Sources (The SPWD will prepare all final cost estimates. This schedule is for preliminary purposes only.)
1. Land (if land must be purchased):
2. Off-site construction:
3. On-site Development:
4. Utility connection fees:
5. Water rights deeded:

11. Renovation of vacated space:
12. Correction of known deficiencies: 611380
(describe deficiencies) The building is missing make-up air systems in labs with high-capacity exhaust. Office and some classroom environments rely on unit heaters in lieu of heating systems with fresh air ventilation. Existing exterior windows are single pane, large exterior roll-up and man doors are un-insulated and failing. Existing IT and data infrastructure is limited. Classroom and office finishes are old and worn-out. The facility lacks sufficient building insulation.
