Scholander Hall AHU & FC Replacement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project would remove and replace an air handling unit (AHU-1) and fan coil (FC-1) within Scholander Hall at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). The existing equipment has surpassed its useful life and in recent years has begun to fail impacting research within the facility. All associated medium-temperature water (MTW) and chilled water (CHW) piping would be replaced up to the isolation valves at the adjacent building mains for all equipment being replaced. In addition, AHU controls would be updated to allow proper integration into the Building Management System.
