II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: Replace the existing fan coil units, make up air units, unit heaters, exhaust fans, evaporative coolers and add control strategies to the supply rooms and adjoining offices. The fan coil units and make up air units heating coils operate and were design on a 180 - 160 loop temperature from the boilers and with the newly installed condensing boilers the new fan coil heating coils and make up air units are to be redesigned at a lower loop temperature to take advantage of the higher efficiency of the boiler. The airflow for the make up air units and fan coil units could should be on a demand ventilation system (variable flow system). The evaporative coolers need to replaced with a better preforming models such as a Breezair - TBS series or Coolerado series M50 The control strategy would between the supply rooms, adjoining offices, and drill hall. there would be door sensors at the exterior door and the office's doors to the drill hall and supply room. The evaporative coolers will be shutdown when the exterior doors are open more then five minutes. The office units close to minimum or off when the office door is open to the supply room for more than five minutes. As a part of this project the engineer will provide a building load model for the current building conditions.
17. Project Justification: All equipment at the end of their useful life as they are 20 years old as of 2017 and parts are becoming difficult to locate and when the part is found it is very expensive and it has become taxing on the maintenance staffs budget. The fan coil units and make up air units heating coil operating temperatures were design to 180 - 160 deg F and with the newly installed condensing boilers the heating coils can be redesign at a lower loop temperature to take advantage of the higher efficiency of the boiler. The fan coils are currently installed with no access for service which the maintenance staff has to spend considerable amount of time to service the units. The make air units use a evaporative cooler to pretreat the air before it enter the faculty making the indoor environmental quality poor with all the added moisture. The MUA units are not running to design specification that is causing the units to over pressuring the space. The evaporative coolers are falling apart, the metal frames are rusted and paper thin to where a person can put their finger through the frame of the units. The control strategy between the supply room and offices will allow the control system to shutdown the mechanical cooling system between each room as the occupants leave doors open to the outside.
18. Project Background Information: The Central plant replacement was picked up in the 15/16 CIP process and should be completed in the fall of 2016. In this project the boiler were replaced with condensing boiler and a higher tonnage chiller that can accommodate the additional load from the MUAs. The actuators on the FCUs were replaced in 2013 and put on the delta controls system in the facility
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: FCUs, Make up air units, UHs, evaporative coolers
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: 1997
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: reznor, williams, united metal, Greenheck
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 the equipment fails the condition inside the building will become un-occupiable and loss of employee production. The occupants will have to relocate another facility until system is replaced or repaired. This would be a costly and unrealistic endeavor. State maintenance can possibly replace or repair a unit here and there over the years but that would put a strain on their already tight/strained budget that is used to maintain all equipment across the state. If maintenance has to replace the equipment, it would be done in a patch work system with the multiple brands of equipment not designed for the spaces it services by a professional engineer.
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): When the units fail the temperatures in the armory become excessive especially in the summer. This places greater stress on the individuals’ physical health and contributes to the space to becomes unoccupiable therefore hindering the National Guards ability to respond to state emergency where they are critically involved.
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:
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? 12/31/2018
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? Failure of the system and losing control of the HVAC and that would result in lost of the building
