The Department ranking of this project:
10. The Department will rank their projects 1 through the lowest ranked project (e.g., 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). 14
11. Has this project been previously requested in a prior CIP? Yes
12. SPWD 4 digit Building No. (for existing buildings) 0354
13. Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended) 0354HVA4

15. If the facility is existing, is it State owned? Yes
II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The chiller serving the West Neighborhood Family Service Center (Building 7) has reached its useful life and this project would serve to replace it.
17. Project Justification: As the chiller has reached its useful life, the agency is requesting that it be replaced before there is any major disruption in service. As Building 7 serves as an outpatient facility for providing mental health services to children, it is critical that there is no disruption in service. Additionally, a newer system will benefit the agency because newer models are designed to reduce electrical usage in order to comply with 2009 IECC and ASHRAE 90.1, which will reduce utility costs.
18. Project Background Information: The chiller was originally designed to serve multiple buildings (Buildings 7, 9, and 10). Currently, the chiller only serves Building 7. By replacing an old chiller that was designed for multiple buildings with a chiller designed to service just one, the agency should expect to see a significant savings in its utility expenditures.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: Chiller
19b. Year existing equipment was installed:
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: York
19d. Model of existing equipment: YCAL0060EC46XBASDT
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? Unknown
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): If the project is not approved, the agency runs the risk of having an inoperable HVAC system. During the hotter months of the year, the temperatures inside of the building may rise to a level that will impact the health and safety of staff and clients. Under emergency repair and replacement conditions, the cost of expediting this project could prove to be far more expensive than a proactive replacement.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): Without an operable HVAC system, the working environment with the summer weather conditions in Las Vegas could be intolerable for staff and clients. Staff and clients could experience greater fatigue, heat exhaustion, dehydration, headaches, and a loss of work productivity. It is likely that client appointments may be cancelled or rescheduled until the HVAC system can be fixed. As a result, services to the community may be delayed.
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
23a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
23b. Explain: If this project is completed during the winter months, then no relocation of personnel should be necessary.
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 06/30/2018
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? It is unknown how much longer the equipment can continue operating under the current conditions. In order to prevent any health and life safety issues, it is recommended that the project start as soon as possible.
