Budget Year / Version:  


This project provides for the systematic replacement of heating, ventilating, air conditioning, automated temperature controls, and plumbing systems for MCPS facilities. This replacement approach is based on indoor environmental quality (IEQ), energy performance, and maintenance data. Qualifying systems and/or components are selected based on the above criteria and are prioritized within the CIP through a rating system formula. MCPS is participating in interagency planning and review to share successful and cost effective approaches. The Indoor Air Quality and Energy Conservation projects are now merged with this project to better reflect the coordination of work performed. The work-years reflected in this project are from that merger. An FY 2020 appropriation was approved to continue this level of effort project to address mechanical system upgrades and/or replacements of systems at various schools throughout MCPS. An FY 2021 appropriation was requested for mechanical systems upgrades and/or replacements for Clarksburg, Brookhaven, Meadow Hall, and Ronald McNair elementary schools and the fourth phase of Quince Orchard High School. However, due to fiscal constraints, the County Council reduced the FY2021 appropriation by $9 million less than the Board of Education's request. Therefore, the list shown above will be aligned with the approved funding level for FY2021. An FY 2022 appropriation and amendment to the FY2021-2026 CIP was approved to reinstate expenditures in FY 2022 that were removed as part of the adopted FY2021-2026 CIP. In addition, the Board of Education's requested amended CIP included the FY 2021 supplemental appropriation of $3.0 million to address Covid-19 related indoor air quality and HVAC enhancements, that was approved by the County Council. The approved FY 2022 appropriation and amendment will address mechanical system upgrades and/or replacements of schools systemwide. An FY 2023 appropriation was approved for mechanical systems upgrades and/or replacements at various schools throughout the county. However, the County Council, in the adopted FY2023-2028 CIP decreased expenditures in FY2023, therefore, the number of projects to be completed will be reduced to align with the approved expenditures. Implementation of this program will also be based on implications of construction cost increases and supply chain interruptions. An FY 2024 appropriation and amendment to the FY 2023-2028 CIP is requested to address the backlog of HVAC projects and provide additional funding due to the impact on construction costs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
