A. GENERAL SCOPE OF WORK:
The project consists of the removal of the chiller, boiler and all chilled and hot water fed air handler units (1-6) from above ceiling and replacement one to one with 5 packaged roof top units with gas heat.

New power and gas will be provided at each roof top unit.  After the system is fully functional, the boiler and chiller (existing and temporary chillers) will be removed along with chilled and hot water loops in the ceiling plenum. Due to the age of the roof and the requirement to install new equipment curbs and cut in new openings, the existing roof will be replaced with new insulation board and TPO roofing. The existing drains and overflows will be refurbished. Two large skylights will be removed, the openings framed, decked, and will receive new insulation and TPO roofing. New flashing and copings will be provided. On the interior new acoustical tile ceilings, new drywall furr-downs and new LED lighting will be required as shown. New virtual sky light fixtures will be installed to replace the natural lighting lost by the removal of the skylights. Some patching and painting should be covered in areas where ceilings are to be removed. The internal gutters of the existing canopy will be re-lined. Work may be performed during the day and/or night.
