In accordance with the Board of Regents Capital Improvement Process, South Dakota State
University (SDSU) requests approval of this Facility Design Plan for the Central Heating Plant Boiler
Replacement and Plant Upgrades project. This submittal is a result of the schematic design
completed by Stanley Consultants, Inc. SDSU requests authorization to complete design
development and construction drawings. SDSU also requests approval to proceed with bidding the
boiler procurement package.

   A. Architectural, Mechanical & Electrical Schematic Design

   The justification for the project has not changed from that stated in the previously approved
   Facility Program Plan.

   Summary of Architectural Work:

       1.     Construction of a Control Room to house new workstations for the boiler plant control
       system.

       2.     Construction of new supervisor’s office that is being demolished to make room for a
       new exit required for egress.

       3.      Renovation to building exits and interior stairs, replacing deteriorated stairs, and
       bringing others exits and stairways into code compliance.

       4.      Bid alternates will be included for window replacement and exterior tuck-pointing.

   Description of Mechanical Systems:

       1. Fire Protection: No changes planned. The building recently received a new fire alarm
       panel under a previous project. The building is not sprinkled.

       2. Plumbing: Demolition of one shower and installation of a boiler water sample testing
       station are included. Minor plumbing modifications as required for reconfiguration of office,
       control break rooms to accommodate relocation of a sink and water cooler.

       3. HVAC:       Building ventilation upgrades to control combustion air for the boilers will be
       included. A new boiler combustion air makeup unit will be installed as well as an air handler
       to provide conditioned ventilation air to the office, control and break rooms.

4. Boiler Plant Equipment:

          a. Removal of Boiler #4 and auxiliary equipment.

          b. Removal of Boiler #7 and auxiliary equipment.

          c. Asbestos abatement as required for demolition of boilers, piping and other
             equipment.

          d. Installation of two new dual fuel (gas/#2 fuel oil) boilers. One boiler sized at 35,000
             pounds per hour capacity and the other at 65,000 pounds per hour capacity. New
             boilers will water-tube design for long life and will be equipped with flue-gas
             economizers to reclaim some of the heat normally lost from a boiler stack. Besides
             being a necessary maintenance replacement, the boilers will increase our firm
             capacity on natural gas by about 42,000 pounds per hour, bringing our total to
             182,000 pounds per hour. This capacity will position us well into the future with
             boiler capacity.

          e. Replacement of two (2) existing boiler feedwater pumps with new feedwater pumps
             including variable speed drives.

          f.   Replacement of one (1) condensate transfer pump with a new condensate transfer
               pump including a variable speed drive. Installation of variable speed drives on the
               two (2) remaining condensate transfer pumps.

          g. Expansion of the existing plant wide control system to interface the new equipment
             with the existing control system.

          h. Replacement of the steam pressure reducing station and low pressure steam line
             that serves Yeager Hall and DePuy Military Hall. This will include asbestos
             abatement on the existing line.

          i.   Replacement and relocation of the low pressure steam safety relief valve.

          j.   Installation of a bearing cooling water reclamation system on the induced draft fan
               and stoker bearing cooling water system. This is planned as a bid alternate.

          k. Installation of an underground fuel oil storage tank monitoring system on the existing
             fuel oil tank. This is planned as a bid alternate.

          l.   Replace or repair Boiler #5 and #6 stacks based on independent testing of the
               current stacks condition. This is planned as a bid alternate.


   Description of Electrical Systems:

       Project scope includes replacement of building electrical switchgear, motor control centers
       and major distribution panels. Existing panels that serve coal and ash handling equipment
       are not included in the scope of this project since coal does not appear to be a viable fuel
       choice for our plant beyond the next few years.

Project Timeline:

       Design development documents are anticipated to begin July 1, 2011. During design
       development, with bid specifications prepared by Stanley Consultants, SDSU plans to bid
       and procure the boilers in advance of the remaining construction. The boilers have a
       very long lead time of approximately nine months. In order for the boilers to arrive in time
       for installation during the summer of 2012, they need to be procured in advance. They
       will be provided to the contractor as owner-provided equipment to be installed by the
       contractor. Other advantages to bidding the boilers ahead of the other construction
       documents include savings of contractor markup on approximately $2.5 million worth of
       equipment. It also allows the A/E to design piping and stack connections for the boilers
       around known dimensions.

       Design Development documents will be developed while the boiler procurement package
       is out for bids and are expected to be complete by September 1, 2012. Bid documents
       for the construction package will be completed by November 15, 2011 for final review
       with Building Committee approval anticipated by mid-December 2011. The contractor’s
       construction contract is anticipated to be fully executed by February 6, 2012 with
       construction to begin at that time. Boilers should be delivered approximately April 2012.
       SDSU plans an annual campus-wide steam outage for early May each year. The
       contractor will have tie-ins and other work that needs to occur during this outage. This
       project schedule will allow the contractor to get necessary shop drawings approved and
       begin construction prior to the May outage. See the project schedule and Figure 1 -
       Project Timeline, below for more key dates. Other than the annual scheduled steam
       outage in May, the boiler plant is anticipated to remain in service to provide steam to
       campus during the entire construction process.

   B. Impact to Existing Building or Campus Wide Heating/Cooling/Electrical Systems




                                           Page 3 of 10

                        SOUTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY

   Electrical Distribution: Electrical distribution loads should not be impacted by this project.
   The new electrical loads associated with the new boilers #9 and #10 are anticipated to
   be approximately equal to the electrical equipment loads associated with boilers #4 and
   #7, which are being demolished. Electrical distribution is adequate to the plant.

   Impact to Existing Tunnels (and associated utilities): The utility tunnel running north from
   the Central Heating Plant, past Yeager Hall, will be the only tunnel included in this
   project’s scope of work. The existing low pressure steam service to Yeager Hall and
   DePuy Military Hall will be abated and demolished. It will be replaced with a new, smaller
   low pressure line to serve those two facilities. Due to the short proximity to the plant,
   those two facilities will share the steam pressure reducing station located in the Central
   Heating Plant that provides low pressure steam to the plant itself.


   Water: The campus water distribution system will not be directly affected by this project.
   However, as steam demand on campus is expected to grow along with overall campus
   growth, the water consumption in the plant will likely increase slightly to accommodate
   the extra makeup water requirements associated with campus growth.

   Sanitary Sewer: Impacts to the sanitary sewer are anticipated to be negligible.


   Storm Sewer: Storm sewer impacts are anticipated to be negligible.


   Natural Gas: Natural gas service to the campus and to the plant is adequate to support
   the new equipment. The future plans are to continue to burn coal in existing Boilers #5
   and #6 during the winter months until compliance with the new Environmental Protection
   Agency Hazardous Air Pollutant regulations is required, which is approximately three
   years away. Therefore natural gas consumption in the plant will be largely unaffected for
   the short term. Once we stop burning coal, our winter-time gas consumption will
   increase dramatically in the plant. The main gas lines and service to the building are
   deemed adequate to support the plant’s needs with the new boiler equipment.

C. Total Estimated Construction Costs:

   The total project cost is estimated to be approximately $5,824,000 for the design and
   construction of the project. This is about $37,000 over the $5,787,000 in bond funds
   available for the project. As the design development documents evolve and construction
   costs estimates are updated, additional bid alternates will be included if needed to keep
   the project within budget. The breakdown is shown in the following table.
