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). 36
11. Has this project been previously requested in a prior CIP? No
12. SPWD 4 digit Building No. (for existing buildings) 0357, 1991, 1992
13. Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended)

II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The purpose of this project is to replace the HVAC units on three residential treatment homes of the Oasis program (Buildings 11, 13, and 14) on the Children's Mental Health West Charleston Campus.
17. Project Justification: The HVAC units on these residential treatment homes have reached the end of its useful life. As such, the agency is requesting that they be replaced before there is any major disruption of service to the clients in the Oasis program. As the Oasis program provides residential treatment services to clients with mental health diagnoses, it is critical that the agency provide them with a comfortable living environment.
18. Project Background Information: The Oasis program has five treatment homes, which can have a capacity of 30 residential clients. The three treatment homes that are impacted by this CIP project would serve a maximum of 18 residential clients. All of these clients have a mental health diagnosis.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: HVAC units / HVAC ductwork
19b. Year existing equipment was installed:
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
19d. Model of existing equipment:
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 this project is not approved for the Oasis program, then the agency will continue to utilize its contracted HVAC vendor for any unanticipated maintenance repairs. However, it is uncertain how much longer the equipment will be repairable or viable for future use. In the event that the equipment fails and the damage is irreparable, the agency may need to determine if there are other providers that can accept its existing clients. Under emergency repair and replacement conditions, the cost of expediting a fix could prove to be far more expensive than a proactive planned replacement project.
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): The Oasis program is a licensed 30 bed program that provides mental health rehabilitative treatment to children from throughout the state. Being able to regulate the temperature of the facility is a licensing requirement. The inability to heat or cool the facility would require the agency to transfer their patients to other available facilities. If there are no beds available at other facilities, then a client may have to be transferred to an out of state location.
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: During periods of mild weather, it would be possible for State Public Works to schedule the HVAC replacements without any temperature impact to staff or clients.
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? 6/30/2019
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? It is unknown how much longer the HVAC units will be operable for the Oasis program. In order to prevent any health and life safety issues, it is recommended that the project start as soon as possible.
