II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The purpose of this project is to install a replacement of the existing Network 8000 control system that is obsolete with a new Schneider Electric Intelligent Automation LON HVAC Control System. The Nevada State Veterans Home's (NSVH) current Environmental Controls are divided into two areas: 1) Universal Network Controller(UNC) The UNC is driven off a software program with network connectivity (G3). It supplies commands to peripheral components & also supplies graphics for user / operator interface. 2) Peripheral Components (Needed): Peripherals interface with the UNC. Peripheral modules control or actuate Variable Air Volume (VAV) boxes to supply a constant airflow at variable temperatures to rooms. Peripheral modules also control boilers, chillers, pump motors, & hot water storage temperatures. Peripheral Components Identified for replacement: Area A thru E VAV Boxes (112): o Furnish and install a new controller to replace existing o Furnish and install a new room sensor to replace existing (existing wire to be reused) o Furnish and install a new discharge air sensor to replace existing (existing wire to be reused) o Pull new LON cable inside existing conduit o Replace Qty 224 Belimo water valve actuators on hot & cold loop piping. Clean or replace Y strainer valves. AHU (4): o Furnish and install a new 800 controller card in the existing base o Replace existing PEM with 200 controller o Pull new LON cable inside existing conduit SF (2): o Replace existing PEM with 200 controller o Pull new LON cable inside existing conduit FCU (5): o Replace existing PEM with 150 controller o Pull new LON cable inside existing conduit Chilled Water System (1): o Furnish and install (2) new 800 controller cards in the existing bases o Pull new LON cable inside existing conduit Scope of Work Outline Page 3 of 5 Nevada Contractors License C-2 69268 Condenser Water System (1): o Furnish and install (2) new 800 controller cards in the existing bases o Pull new LON cable inside existing conduit Heating Water System (1): o Furnish and install (2) new 800 controller cards in the existing bases o Replace existing PEM with 200 controller o Pull new LON cable inside existing conduit Also Included in our Scope of Work: o All applicable tax and freight o One (1) year warranty on the new equipment o Electronic submittals and maintenance manuals Clarifications: o Proposal and pricing valid for 60 days o All compatible existing end devices will be reused Not Included in our Scope of Work: o Any demolition, over time work, shift work, cutting, patching, painting o Performance and payment bond (available for a fee) o Replacement of any existing devices to be reused and found to be defective o The furnishing or installation of any controls not specifically mentioned above
17. Project Justification: The Nevada State Veterans Home is an 85,000 square foot facility that was designed & constructed with automated environmental control systems. The necessity to support this equipment fall under standards established by NAC449.74539 & Veterans Administration (VA) Standard 51.100. A facility for skilled nursing shall provide a safe, functional, sanitary and comfortable environment for the residents in the facility, staff, and members of the general public. The temperature of the facility must be maintained at a level that is not less than 71 degrees fahrenheit and not more than 81 degrees Fahrenheit at all times.
