2014 STATE APPROPRIATION REQUEST: $3,600,000 AGENCY PROJECT PRIORITY: 6 of 26 PRIOR YEAR CAPITAL APPROPRIATIONS: FY2012 Workforce Phase 1 13,389,000 (design and construction) Project At A Glance Replace HVAC units to allow for better comfort in the existing classrooms Construction Document completed Renovation of 90,470 GSF Number of classroom/labs impacted: Campuswide Eliminate $2.7 million of deferred maintenance backlog Improves STEM classrooms and will allow flexibility for changes Security will improve monitoring for College access points Reuse existing exterior material to be sustainable

Project Narrative

The lower level of the T Building houses the construction trades and ceramics programs. Air conditioning will benefit the workforce programs that are consistently interrupted with the sound of overhead air handlers in the program spaces. The scope of air conditioning includes replacement of 35 year old air handler equipment and locating new units in mechanical rooms separated from program spaces. PROJECT RATIONALE: Reduce approximately $2.7 million in backlog. This project includes the remaining infrastructure updates from the 2006 Predesign to complete the project. Institution Master Plans and Regional Collaborations: The project is consistent with the Campus Master Facilities Plans intention to improve the instructional facilities targeting programs to enhance the quality of regional workforce and to reduce deferred maintenance backlog. Exploration/Implementation of Alternatives and Partnerships for Funding and/or Equipment: Collaboration with Metro-Alliance institutions in the development of baccalaureate degrees for registered nurses-- specifically with Anoka-Ramsey Community College and North Hennepin Community College. The Power of You is a collaborative program between MCTC, Saint Paul College, and Metropolitan State University Campus Data: FYE Headcount Space Use % R & R (per sq. ft.)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The project will provide air conditioning for the lower levels of the T Building and Bowman Hall. The project also includes security system upgrades at the lower level access, repairs to the deteriorating T Building street level masonry planters, and rehabilitation to the receiving dock drive, walkway, drainage, and enclosing masonry walls. PROJECT RATIONALE AND RELATIONSHIP TO AGENCY STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK: Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Strategic Framework: Ensure access to an extraordinary education for all Minnesotans: Enhance learning environment is achieved with improved outside air delivery and increase overall human comfort indoors when humid atmospheric conditions persist outside. Be the partner of choice to meet Minnesotas workforce and community needs:

Deferred Maintenance Backlog removed: Approximately $2.7 million. Rightsizing and Space Utilization Improvement: The Workforce Phase 1 project created new labs for the Workforce Program, along with flexible classroom space. The Workforce Phase 2 project adds air conditioning, and

indoor air quality enhancements to the Workforce Program and Athletics spaces that are not funded as part of the Phase 1 project. Energy efficiency and/or other Sustainability Improvements: Outdoor air supply will be delivered at higher levels with more energy efficiency. Motors, pumps and other equipment reduce energy consumption per supplied unit and have more sophisticated controls through the existing building automation system. The interior environment will have better comfort through the ability to reduce humidity in the below grade academic Workforce spaces. Impact on Agency Operating Budgets Capacity of Current Utility Infrastructure: New HVAC equipment that is part of this project will be delivered through existing service drive designed to accommodate heavy loads. Building Operations Expenses: Maintenance and janitorial time is expected to remain the same because area is not increased. However a goal for the project is provide a readily maintainable environment to reduce demand on facility efforts. Electrical loads will have seasonal increase for additional air conditioning. Equipment and controls are to be selected for low energy consumption. Controls can optimize operating hour by monitoring demand to optimize energy usage. The campus can absorb small increases in operating expenses. Operating: $0.006/sq. ft. approximately $10,000 annual increase in operating cost for additional cooling OTHER CONSIDERATIONS: Consequences of Delayed Funding Outdated, 30 year old air handling units, will not be replaced. Lower level workforce labs and athletic space will remain un-air conditioned. Exterior planters will continue to deteriorate. Exterior service drive will continue to deteriorate.
