II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The purpose of this project is to provide for several deferred maintenance needs at the Cheyenne and Henderson campuses. The project will address three issues: 1) Cheyenne North Central Plant – The scope of this portion of the project is building out the structure for the new north central plant and adjacent site work located at the Cheyenne campus. This project will also include installing a new chiller/ boiler within the new plant. A conceptual plan has been created for the design of the structure and the mechanical system within by SH Architecture and Harris Engineering. The College of Southern Nevada (CSN) will be requesting the full amount of the funding through the 2017 legislative process, 2) Henderson Hydronic Line – The scope of this portion of the project is to build a new hydronic line between the new central plant located at the Henderson campus C building and the other buildings on campus. The hydronic line has not been designed, and CSN will be asking for the full design and construction funding through the 2017 legislative process, and 3) Cheyenne Library Renovation and Seismic Upgrade – The scope of this portion of the project includes upgrading the East wing of the Cheyenne Main building to meet current seismic codes. In addition, the project will entail a renovation to the existing finishes and furnishings within the Library space that will be disrupted by the seismic construction. John A Martin Structural Engineers has completed conceptual drawings on the seismic upgrade, however, no plans have been completed for the renovation of the library. CSN will be requesting funding for the full design and construction of the remodel.
17. Project Justification: 1) Cheyenne North Central Plant – Many of CSN’s existing mechanical units are old and at the end of their life span. Currently, many of the systems are not interconnected. Not only is this inefficient from an energy standpoint, but it also does not allow for redundancy of mechanical systems. This redundancy is important to help prevent entire sections of the building going down since no backup capacity is available. In order to rectify this situation, CSN is planning to build a new central plant to connect any new mechanical systems together. As these mechanical systems fail and new units are added, it is critical to have the new central plant structure in place so that the new units can be migrated over to the new location. This project will also provide for a new chiller/ boiler. These mechanical units are past their lifespan and parts are starting to break, 2) Henderson Hydronic Line - CSN is currently planning for a new central plant to be located at the C building. Currently, all of Henderson’s buildings function on separate mechanical systems. This arrangement is not energy efficient. As the old mechanical equipment in the buildings has been replaced, CSN has designed the new systems in a manner that they can eventually be connected to a central plant. In order to make the connection, a new hydronic line will need to be run between the buildings, 3) Cheyenne Library Renovation and Seismic Upgrade – this will be a continuation of an existing project to bring the structure up to current seismic codes as well as an opportunity to renovate the existing library. The seismic upgrade will include the installation of interior and exterior shear walls, as well as reinforcing the interior columns. It is anticipated that the seismic upgrade will be destructive to the existing finishes within the library. The library finishes are currently in poor condition, and the retrofit will provide the opportunity to replace them. In addition, the library is in need of a retrofit to help meet the changing needs of the students. The library is currently structured around out dated planning concepts (a large stack area and individual student carrels). New library design tends to be more collaborative and technology focused. The structural work required will provide the perfect opportunity to transform from an outdated library support area to a more modern library incorporating student collaboration areas and fewer stacks.
18. Project Background Information: The project background is as followings for the three different areas: 1) Cheyenne North Central Plant – In the 2009 legislative session, CSN received $2 million dollars to start renovating the mechanical systems in the Cheyenne Main campus building. Part of this project included design of a new central plant. In the following years, CSN has spent an additional $1,431,344 upgrading the mechanical systems and setting the stage to create a new central plant. Within the Main building, all of the piping infrastructure has been installed and as HVAC units were replaced, they were designed to work in conjunction with the new plant, 2) Henderson Hydronic Line – In the past several years, the mechanical equipment in the A and B buildings has been replaced. This new equipment was designed to accommodate a new central plant in the future. In 2018, CSN is scheduled to set $750,000 aside from Capital Improvement Fees to build a new central plant at the Henderson C building. Once this plant is complete, the only remaining item left to construct will be the hydronic line that will connect the existing buildings to the new central plant, 3) Cheyenne Library Renovation and Seismic Upgrade – In 2014, CSN hired an engineer to design the seismic upgrades needed to bring the East wing up to current codes. During this year, CSN was able to begin these upgrades, but only had funding for a portion of the work. Shear walls were added to the building structure on the first floor student services area. In order to complete the project, some additional shear walls will need to be added and the interior columns will need to be reinforced.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: Chiller
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: 1997
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: York, Trane
19d. Model of existing equipment: U94J03750, GFFM104780, GFFM104756
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? Unknown
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.): Unknown
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): 1) Cheyenne North Central Plant – Currently, there is no redundancy in the Main building mechanical systems. If one unit fails, the building will not be operational, 2) Henderson hydronic line – Buildings A & B currently do not have any redundancy built into the system. The new hydronic line will connect these buildings to the central plant, and the system will have the redundancy required, 3) the Main building structural system does not meet current seismic codes. This remodel is necessary to bring the building up to current standards.
