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

II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: Berg Hall is the main Administration building for Great Basin College. It houses the President's Office, Admissions & Records, Financial Aid, Advising and Career Center, Controller's Office, Continuing Education, and other Administrative functions. The building was originally built in 1986 and has had one addition. This project would replace the Chiller, reconfigure the duct work and add a second boiler to Berg Hall. Berg Hall is approximately 10,000 square feet.
2. Project Justification: Currently there are large variables in temperatures and poor air circulation in many parts of the building. Adjustments have been made to thermostats, controllers, etc. in order to improve the conditions, but nothing has been successful. The original chiller was replaced in 1996 and the current chiller is now fourteen years old. The reconfiguration of the duct work will improve the air circulation and temperature. There is currently no backup system for the one boiler. These improvements will make the building more energy efficient.
3. Project Background Information: Great Basin College has made many attempts to improve the air circulation and temperature throughout the building by changing controls, vents, thermostats, etc.. These attempts have been unsuccessful. The original chiller only lasted ten years and the current chiller has been in place for fourteen. The second boiler will provide redundancy and backup. The reconfiguration of the duct work will improve the air circulation and mitigate the large temperature variations. It will improve the work environment for almost 50 people who work in the building.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced: chiller, duct work
b. Year existing equipment was installed: chiller 1996, duct work 1986
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: chiller - Trane
d. Model of existing equipment: chiller - Trane model #CGAEC40GACA1DHR
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? No
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): The quality of the work environment will not be improved for employees due to temperature and air circulation issues. Equipment is old and is not as energy efficient as new equipment would be.
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):
