ITEM 128-1001-R0905    Authorization to Repair/Replace the HVAC system in the Curry Health Service Building; The University of Montana-Missoula

THAT: Consistent with the provisions of MCA18-2-102, the Board of Regents authorizes The University of Montana-Missoula to replace and upgrade the HVAC system in the Curry Health Service. The project is estimated at $450,000 and will be financed with auxiliary funds and an Intercap Loan.

EXPLANATION: The facility is comprised of two separate buildings under one roof, the original building built in 1956 and a major addition in 1996. This project will replace the 1956 vintage system, update technology/controls and integrate with the newer system to have one system. In addition wells will be drilled for ground water cooling.
