II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: Replace 4 make up air units with roof top units that will allow the unit operate under a demand ventilation controls with cooling from indirect evaporative coolers or apart of the existing heat pump system. The duct work needs to be revisited as it does not provide the airflow that the spaces require. The fifth make up air unit needs to be replaced and the sized reduced to just serve the kitchen hood and kitchen. The break room will be removed from this the make up air unit and will need it served from a heat pump to be added to the system to serve this area. The roof top units that serve the Auditorium will need to be replaced with units that can be controlled on demand ventilation controls with CO2 sensors and economizer mode. A office that is connected to these units will be removed and placed on its own heat pump unit.
17. Project Justification: Equipment listed has reached the end of their useful life as they are 17 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 mission and use of the area that the make up air units serve (except kitchen) has change and the HVAC strategy needs to change as they are more office or only used 2% of the time but design for 100% occupancy. The air distribution with the make up air units does not get the air to the floor as the second level is always very warm but at floor level is always cool and drafty. The break room is served off the MUA unit that serves the kitchen and the break room is used when the kitchen is not in use, so it cause the kitchen hood to operate to operate to condition the break room. The break is usually cooled or warm as the air is served from the MUA bringing in 100% outside air instead of just the min amount of ventilation outside air. The roof top unit do not take advantage of the northern Nevada to provide free cooling in a density populated space when in use. The units do not respond fast enough as the room becomes occupied and the users start propping open doors that effects the efficiency of the units. There is a space that has turned into a office since the buildings construction and it is served on the 10 ton unit that serves the auditorium, so the 10 ton units has to stay on to serve a space less then 150 sq ft. Additionally the roof top units operates with R-22 refrigerant. R-22 has been mandated by the federal government to be 75 percent phased out by 2010. This refrigerant that is available is grossly overpriced if maintenance can find it, which is a waste of tax dollars. Parts for the roof tops units are becoming impossible to acquire and when the part is located is unreasonably priced
18. Project Background Information: The buildings main HVAC system was replaced in 2012.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: MUA, RTU
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: 2000
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: Trane and Rapid Air
19d. Model of existing equipment: YCH-103 and Rapid model 4024
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? No
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? No
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): If the equipment fails the condition inside the building will become unoccupiable 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? Unknown
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 portions of the building
