Justification

This project implements the recommendations of the campus utilities master plan (12/12, and 2/13) and campus facilities master plan update (6/18). The campus' existing heating and cooling equipment is typically 20-30 years old and beyond its useful economic life. Due to the age of the equipment and increasing maintenance problems and costs, each campus is experiencing a significant increase in mechanical system problems and heating/cooling outages. Based on a life cycle cost analysis, the installation of a central heating/cooling plant offers significant equipment replacement, energy and maintenance savings to the College.

The need to provide new systems for heating and cooling campus buildings was articulated in the utilities master plan and satisfying this requirement is critical to new building construction and the planned renovation of the existing campus buildings.
