Headquarters Building K (Baltimore County)

GO Bonds                           $1,665,000             Recommendation:    Approve

Bill Text: Provide funds to design and construct minor building renovations and HVAC upgrades to
the existing Headquarters Building K.

Project Description: The project consists of a renovation and upgrade of the building systems at the
State Police Headquarters Building K (the old crime laboratory). Currently, the 24,276 gross square
foot (GSF) facility houses the members of the Department of State Police Licensing Division, an
electronic shop, and other administrative units. The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning
(HVAC) system used by the crime laboratory is no longer functioning adequately as it has come to
the end of its useful life. Additionally, minor building renovations are needed in order for the facility
to remain functional.

•       The current request includes $1.7 million to renovate and upgrade building systems at the
        State Police Headquarters Building K (the old crime laboratory). This project was not
        reflected in the 2008 Capital Improvement Program (CIP).

•       Both the Part I and Part II Program Plans were approved in December 2008.

•       Construction is expected to commence in April 2010 and conclude by January 2011.

•       The building efficiency range of 61.3% is below the average range for a non-university office
        building (67.0 to 75.0%). The Department of Legislative Services has been advised that the
        low efficiency range is due, in part, to the layout of the current facility, which was originally
        built as a crime laboratory. Consequently, the facility has smaller rooms than an average
        office building.

Project Analysis
        The fiscal 2010 request is for approximately $1.7 million in general obligation (GO) bonds to
renovate and upgrade the building systems at the State Police Headquarters Building K (the old crime
laboratory). Due to its age, the HVAC system is not functioning properly and has come to the end of
its useful life. Additionally, there is a need to replace the 25-year old equipment with a modern,
energy-efficient design based on general office building needs and standards.


Background
        Maryland State Police Headquarters Building K was built in 1984 as the State Police Crime
Laboratory. The facility remained in continuous service as a multi-discipline forensic laboratory until
the crime laboratory was relocated in February 2006. Since 2006, the department has used operating
and facility renewal funding to make renovations and emergency repairs to the existing facility. This
project will complete the renovations and address HVAC and outdated building system concerns.


Project Need
        The most significant problem at the existing facility is the HVAC. Conventional building
systems re-circulate air throughout a facility utilizing 10 to 30% of outside air. Because the facility
once served as the State’s crime laboratory, in order to prevent cross-contamination of evidence from
one laboratory to another, the forensic science laboratory used an HVAC system that was based on a
single pass-through of air. Under this air cooling system, outside air was drawn into the building,
heated or cooled at a set temperature, circulated to each laboratory area, and then exhausted from the
building without migrating to other areas of the facility. This method is regarded as extremely
inefficient for current building functions, requiring large quantities of heating and cooling energy to
heat outside air to a specified temperature prior to exhausting it into the atmosphere. The current
HVAC system requires extremely sensitive control systems to rapidly adjust proper temperatures and
air volumes to lab spaces.

       Both the large buildingwide exhaust fans and the bio-safety cabinet fans were
decommissioned when the Forensic Sciences Division was relocated. Subsequent efforts to adjust the
flow of treated air have been unsuccessful. As such, windows and doors must be left open to
modulate the air temperature, which has resulted in increased utility costs.

        Additionally, the proposed project involves replacing 25-year old equipment (e.g., emergency
generator, automatic transfer switch, and an electric distribution panel) that has reached the end of its
useful life. Inadequate building systems have resulted in over $100,000 in emergency repairs in
recent years. Outdated equipment will be replaced with modern, energy-efficient equipment
satisfactory for general office building needs and standards.
