Summary
The municipal buildings of Cottage Grove are relatively young and well maintained. A few of the departments have
a shortage of space, improperly configured space, or a combination of the two. Growth of the community, with a
corresponding increase in staff and equipment, will exacerbate the problem.

The Department of Public Works has the greatest need for additional space. The department lacks centralized
garage, storage, and yard space forcing the department to inefficiently use a variety of buildings spread throughout
the Village. The main building at 225 Bonnie Road is well maintained but lacks specific facilities needed to ensure
efficient operation. Further, the DPW building on south Main Street is going to be removed from service, forcing
loss of storage space and the water meter test and repair operation.

The Recreation Department is expanding as the community grows and programs are developed. Developing a space
needs program for the Aquatics Center was not a part of this study, but consideration should be given to providing
Recreation Department office, program, and storage space in that facility if the project proceeds.

There are a number of ways to resolve these space issues by mixing the following strategies to best affect:
    • Expand village hall
    • Expand fire / ems
    • Build new north side fire station
    • Expand DPW
    • Build new DPW
    • Expand police
    • Build new police


Methodology
This study was conducted over the summer of 2006. The bulk of the work consisted of three major tasks:
    • Evaluating the condition of existing buildings:
             o Village Hall at 221 E. Cottage Grove Rd
             o Department of Public Works at 225 Bonnie Road
             o Fire / EMS station 4030 S Main Street
             o The Police Station at 2560 Nora Rd and several remote Public Works facilities were toured.
                 Their physical condition was not evaluated because of their size or ownership.
    • Determining the future needs of each department and provide individual space needs program for each
         department. (See attached spreadsheets).
    • Identifying alternate ways to provide for the needs of each department

Facilities Conditions
All of the facilities are of recent vintage and well maintained. Minor problems were discovered at each facility, but
are consistent with the age of the facility and era in which it was designed. Strictly speaking, the physical condition
of each building is such that it can remain in service for years to come with appropriate maintenance. However,
some of the buildings require changes to enable them to efficiently support operations.

Village Hall
The Village Hall was constructed in 1993 and is located at 221 E. Cottage Grove Rd. The building is a one story
structure of 5,460 square feet and constructed per the requirements of “Type 8 Wood Frame Unprotected” under the
building code in effect at the time of construction. The building uses modest materials and straight forward
detailing to project an image of careful and restrained use of tax payers’ resources.

A visual assessment of the building identified few maintenance or code issues: There is some minor rusting of
exterior hollow metal doors, and minor staining of the exterior insulation system (Stucco). The Americans with
Disabilities Act has matured since the building was built and restroom push/pull clearances, floor space, and knee
protection and thresholds at exterior doors are not consistent with the latest proposed bill and so should be addressed
as part of any major renovation / addition. The batteries in the emergency lighting have failed and should be
serviced or replaced. Several plumbing issues were discovered, including poorly applied pipe insulation and water
heater with a failed thermostat, and several suggestions for increasing the quality of service and minimize backflow.
The most important HVAC issue is the inability to properly set temperature for various spaces within the building or
augment exterior skin losses with perimeter heat. These are primarily user comfort issues and are the result of
balancing construction cost with control of the system. If the ability to control the system is sufficient to please staff
and patrons there is little incentive to alter this system now. See attached reports for further information.

The open office is very organized and has a good relationship to the front counter and front door. This area is
packed full of people and files, creating tight spaces and difficulty in providing for staff growth. Fire proof records
storage is overfull with some records having overflowed into the fireproof storage at the Department of Public
Works. The expanding Recreation Department has limited equipment storage and must use various locations around
the Village shared with the Department of Public Works and transports materials from place to place as needed.
Also, the recreation department has limited choices for low-impact indoor programming.

The meeting room is divisible and also used for municipal court. Storage is limited as the original chair / table
storage room has been converted turned into a technology room to support televising public meetings. There is also
a separate conference room, but its use allows general public to bypass the security to the back office. This
community makes heavy use of the meeting facilities and there are often three meetings occurring simultaneously.

The span of the roof trusses are arranged to ease expansion to the east or west. With the addition of more space the
building is well suited for continued use as a Village Hall. Any renovation and expansion should address the
following issues:
             • Correction of maintenance or code issues
             • Increase fire proof records storage
             • Increase general storage in support of the multipurpose room
             • Increase Recreation Department storage (unless this department is relocated)
             • Increase office / work space
             • Relocate the Municipal Court Clerk to more easily operate a service window independently of the
                   front office transaction counter
             • Provide a useable staff break area

The obvious location for a building expansion is shown on the illustration titled “Village Hall, Possible Expansion”.

Department of Public Works
The Department of Public Works is located at 225 Bonnie Road in a 9,665 square foot single story building. The
building was constructed in 1996 for a private company. The Village has not performed any major work on the
building since acquiring it. The department also utilizes other buildings throughout it’s service area. One of these, a
decrepit garage located on south Main Street, is currently used as a meter shop and is likely to be taken out of use to
make use for new development. The equipment shed adjacent to the Police Department is used to house some new
equipment but it is a remote facility, not heated, and the property is rented by the Village. The rest of the consist of
park storage buildings scattered throughout the community, and which are shared with the Recreation Department.

A visual assessment of the building at 225 Bonnie Road identified several maintenance or code issues. The garage
area lacks the required emergency egress lighting and vehicle exhaust capture system, the HVAC system for the
front office lacks the required amount of outdoor air, and does not have the required access to the HVAC equipment,
and the plumbing fixtures are in violation of current code. There are a few locations where the exterior metal panel
fasteners have become lose. There is evidence of past roof leaks over the office area but discussion did not uncover
any recent problem.

The main garage is undersized, lacks integral floor drainage system, and is not suited to storage of the current
equipment. The staff makes the best of the situation but spends a great deal of time squeezing trucks and equipment
in and out of the garage everyday and exert a lot of effort moving materials between the various storage locations as
use dictates or as the needs of the Recreation Department require. The building lacks useful space for records
storage or plan review, space for maintenance or washing of the equipment, appropriate space for receiving the
public, space for group meetings, or space for locker and shower facilities.

The site shares a paved easement area with a neighbor to the south which limits access to the garage and ability to
restripe the area for better vehicle control. The front lot is small, so even parking is at a premium. On a plus, the
site abuts park area to the west which is otherwise very difficult to access.

This building is difficult to expand because of the tight site. The continued use of this building as a DPW
headquarters is not advisable. The most promising future use of this facility is to return it to the private sector.
However, such decisions must also consider the unique access to the adjacent public park area.

Emergency Services Building
The Emergency Services Building was constructed in 1998 and is located at 4030 S Main Street. The building is a
two story structure with a partially exposed basement of 23,420 square feet and constructed as a “Type No. 6 –
Metal Frame Unprotected” per the requirements of under the building code in effect at the time of construction. The
building is very handsome and projects an image of strength and professionalism.

A visual assessment of the building identified few maintenance or code issues: Metal flashing above windows and
doors are rusting and should be cleaned and repainted or replaced within five years, efflorescence has developed on
the northern exterior wall, and there are various locations of missing caulk around the building exterior and loose
door weather stripping. Additionally, the second floor area is directly open to the apparatus bay, and while not
strictly code required (assuming that the HVAC system is operating correctly) this architect recommends providing
a glazed wall at the second floor balcony to ensure that vehicle exhaust does not work into occupied portions of the
second floor, and to ease the heating and cooling load on the second floor.

The first floor supports the majority of activity. It includes offices for the Fire and EMS chiefs, billing offices, space
for inspection, training, and investigation, sleeping facilities for EMS “Interns”, meeting areas, kitchen, showers, the
main apparatus bay, and other support spaces. The second floor houses a large exercise area, storage, and has a
modest locked area set aside for use by the Fire Department. The basement includes an Emergency Operations
Center, and various office, garage, and storage spaces previously used by the Police Department. The Fire and EMS
departments have slowly been adapting the basement space for their use since the Police Department vacated the
building.

The existing plan configuration has several problems including lack of an appropriate reception area, lack of
sufficient work areas for specific tasks, under sized kitchen, and lack of enough suitable sleeping facilities. Many of
the existing spaces are severely under utilized and the building has a great potential for supporting increased
operations with only modest changes.

The apparatus bay is configured to ease expansion to the north. The site includes a large amount of hillside and
large storm detention area, suggesting the best location for other expansion is to build out the basement towards the
south. Renovation or expansion of the building should address the following issues:
             • Correction of maintenance or code issues
             • Vacate the basement for use by other municipal departments
             • Combine ‘dispatch’ and the adjacent conference room and use as a combined conference / work
                  area and new Emergency Operations Center (vacating the basement EOC)
             • Combine FD and EMS dayrooms, game, and study areas into one location
             • Reconfigure the second floor to provide room for current basement storage and new dayroom,
                  offices, sleeping and/or study rooms.
             • Provide additional sleeping space for volunteers and “externs” by reconfiguring the EMS
                  operations office on the first floor, or reconfiguring the FD space on the second floor
             • Provide enlarged kitchen
             • Provide a workable vehicle exhaust extraction system

The obvious location for a building expansion is shown on the illustration titled “Fire / Ems Station 1, Possible
Expansion”.

the station location(s) is also important. The location of
the current station limits the response area to locations
mostly south of Highway BB. The adjacent map
illustrates the addresses that can be arrived at within 4
minutes of leaving the station. Growth of the
community is occurring further north, and consideration
must be given to a new north-side Fire / EMS station
located between Interstate 94 and Highway BB to reduce
response times

Police Station
The Police Department, located at 2560 Nora Rd, is housed in a rented single story 6,500 square foot building. The
building owner converted the building from its prior use for use by the Police Department. The rental also includes
a modest equipment shed which is used to house patrol vehicles and is shared with the Department of Public Works.

This facility is an improvement over the space previously occupied by the Police Department but is not ideal for this
use. There is a shortage of space for group meetings, records / evidence / patrol / general office storage, lockers,
officer work areas, public visitor facilities, and training areas. The configuration of rooms is not efficient and
creates situations where it is can be difficult to control privacy issues.

Many of the space issues may be solved by a facility that modestly larger, but with a better configuration. Staff
growth will drive the need for a larger building, however. Any future planning should include consideration for
clear separation of public, administrative, and patrol functions and include properly sized evidence storage and
processing facilities and attached garage for patrol vehicles.

Unique Opportunities
The current condition and location of buildings, proposed future development, and relationship between the Village
and Town provide several opportunities unique to Cottage Grove:
    • Placing a new municipal building, perhaps the Village Hall, in a newly constructed downtown district
        offers enormous potential to help establish the downtown district and provide a municipal ‘face’ in an
        active urban area.
    • The Emergency Services building has a surplus of space.
    • Land for a new DPW or PD facility may be available from local developers or from the Town of Cottage
        Grove.
    • The Village Hall is relatively new and in good shape.
    • The Fire station is relatively new and in good shape, and is well located within it’s service area.
    • The Police station is well located within its service area
    • The School system is interested in providing covered parking for the school bus fleet. They may be
        interested in cost sharing land acquisition or construction costs to gain such a facility.

Resolving the Space Problem
The following five schemes represent various approaches to meeting the 2030 space needs of Cottage Grove. The
options cover a range of options and range in complexity and cost. The “final” option is probably not represented
here… these schemes are meant to create discussion in an attempt to find the “right” solution. The variation in
estimated construction cost, from low to high, is less than 20%. Please see the report section titled “Construction
Cost Estimates” for outline of the costs, in 2007 dollars.

A number of decisions should be made as part of the discussion about developing the “right” solution. Please see
the report section titled “Next Steps”.

Scheme 1
This scheme relocates the recreation department into the lower level of the Emergency Services building to reduce
the size of the Village Hall expansion. This is one of the lowest cost schemes available, but might also be seen as a
“stop-gap” approach which buys time until a larger recreation and aquatics facility can be built in Fireman’s Park.
A simplified space needs program for a Recreation Department located outside of Village Hall is as follows:
          Reception                  115sf
          Park / Recreation Director 120sf
          Recreation Assistant(s)    180sf
          Workroom                   100sf
          Program / Conf             500sf
          Storage                    750sf
          Bathroom(s)                200sf
                   Sub               1965sf
          Net to gross @ 1.2x        393sf
                   Total             2358sf

Scheme 1 Highlights:
    • Relocate Recreation into the lower level of the Emergency Services building
    • Reallocates space in the Emergency Services building for better efficiency
    • Build new north side Fire / EMS Station on new land (one to two acres)

Scheme 4
This scheme relocates the Recreation Department into the current Public Works building with only minor interior
renovations. This provides ample room for Recreation. Similar to Scheme 1, this decreases the space crunch at
Village Hall but may also increase Recreation Department staffing due to the requirement for a receptionist. This
scheme also develops a new campus on the north side of the community to house Public Works and a shared Fire /
EMS / PD facility. This new north side campus would be well suited for a school bus fleet garage.

Scheme 4 highlights:
    • Relocate Recreation into current Public Works building.
    • Build new joint north side Public Works / Fire / EMS / PD on new land (ten to twelve acres)
    • School system fleet garage may be co-located on the north side site.
    • Expand Village Hall (minor expansion)

       Public Works:
                 Pro:     Consolidates department
                 Pro:     Provides appropriate storage and maintenance facilities
                 Pro:     Past investment in purchase of Public Works building is maintained.
                 Pro:     Relative savings by sharing portion of garage with PD
                 Con:     Locates Recreation Department into unattractive industrial area.

Next steps:
Cottage Grove must develop a plan for resolving the building / space issues outlined in this report. A reasonable
step by step approach may be:
         Identify:        Highest priority items.
         Decide:          Keep Recreation Department at Village Hall?
         Decide:          Keep ownership of the Public Works building on Bonnie Road?
         Decide:          Move new functions into existing Emergency Services building?
         Decide:          Purchase existing Police Station?
         Decide:          Plan for north side Fire / EMS station?
         Decide:          Combine new construction into one location (DPW / Fire / EMS / PD)?
         Decide:          Combine PD into existing Emergency Services building?
         Decide:          Number of PD squads requiring covered parking?
         Plan:            Develop single implementation plan, with updated space needs program and milestones
                          for construction and costs.
         Identify:        Sources for funding projects.
         Update:          Plan based on available funding.
         Implement:       Design and construct as schedule requires.

STRUCTURAL SURVEY & REPORT

Cottage Grove Municipal Facilities Study
Cottage Grove, Wisconsin

PIERCE ENGINEERS, INC. (PE) recently completed a review and brief site evaluation of the Cottage Grove Municipal
Facilities located at 221 East Cottage Grove Road in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin. The purpose of the investigation
was to review the structural systems and the general structural condition of the building. Design drawings were
available and were used as a reference for the walk-through. The following paragraphs present observations noted
during the visit in addition to professional opinions regarding the overall condition of the building’s structural systems.

The facilities study includes three buildings, the Cottage Grove Municipal Building, the Department of Public Works
(DPW) building, and the Fire Department building. These buildings were constructed between the years of 1993 and
1998.

COTTAGE GROVE MUNICIPAL BUILDING

         OBSERVATIONS (PLAN REVIEW)
                  According to existing building drawings, Cottage Grove Municipal Building is a one-story wood
         framed building of approximately 5,460 sq. ft. The roof framing is composed of conventional wood trusses
         set on load-bearing 2x6 wood stud walls.

         OBSERVATIONS (SITE VISIT)
                   The majority of the ceiling area consists of a typical acoustical drop ceiling. This looks to be in
         generally good condition. The remaining ceiling area consists of a gypsum sheath fastened directly to the
         wood roof trusses. The gypsum ceiling observed shows no cracking or other signs of distress. Wall finishes
         consist of gypsum sheathing fastened directly to the wood stud walls. The wall sheathing observed shows
         no cracking or other signs of distress.
                   At the exterior of the building, the exterior brick appears to be in good condition. The foundation
         wall is partially exposed. It shows no significant cracking and appears to be in good condition. Gutters and
         downspouts are in place and appear to be functioning properly. See Photographs 1 and 2 for typical interior
         and exterior conditions.

         CONCLUSIONS
                   The structure observed appears to be consistent with the framing shown in the design drawings.
         Overall, it is the opinion of PE that the building is in good structural condition with no remediation work
         required.

DPW BUILDING

        OBSERVATIONS (PLAN REVIEW)
                 The DPW building is a prefabricated one-story metal building with an interior above grade vault.
        The front portion of the building is partitioned for office and lobby space. The remainder of the building is
        garage and storage space. There is a small mezzanine area in the garage that consists of 2x10 joists
        supported by wood stud walls. There is also a loading dock at the southeast corner of the building.

        OBSERVATIONS (SITE VISIT)
                  The lobby and office area ceiling area consists of a typical acoustical drop ceiling (See Photograph
        3). This appears to be in good condition. The one area of note is in the lobby area, where there is some
        discoloration in the ceiling tile, possibly due to water infiltration (See Photograph 4). Wall finishes consists
        of gypsum sheathing in the office/lobby area, and look to be in good condition.
                  The exposed structural steel all appears to be in good condition. There are no signs of rust or
        other deterioration (See Photograph 5).
                  The wood mezzanine framing appears to be in good condition (See Photograph 7). There is no
        sign of cracking in the observed joists or studs. There is also no sign of any water damage.
                  There are some cracks observed in the concrete slab on grade in the garage area, but they are
        considered minor. There is also some cracking in the loading dock walls, but they are also considered minor
        (See Photograph 8 and 9). In both cases, the cracking seems consistent with normal wear and tear.
                  The exterior finishes on the building appear to be in good condition and show no signs of
        deterioration (See Photograph 6). Downspouts are present and appear to be functioning properly.

        CONCLUSIONS
                 The structure observed appears to be consistent with the framing shown in the design drawings.
        The one area of note is the discoloration of one of the drop ceiling tiles in the front lobby area. It may be
        advisable to investigate the source of the discoloration to prevent any future issues. Overall, it is the opinion
        of PE that the building is in good structural condition with no remediation work required.

FIRE STATION

        OBSERVATIONS (PLAN REVIEW)
                  The fire station consists of 1st floor multi-use space, a garage with clerestory, mezzanine, hose
        tower, and partial basement. The roof is framed with steel joists supported by either load-bearing masonry
        or structural steel. The mezzanine consists of a concrete slab supported by metal deck and steel joists.
        The joists bear on either load-bearing masonry or structural steel. 1st floor space is primarily slab-on-grade
        construction. Over the basement areas, the first floor framing consists of precast (PC) plank supported by
        concrete foundation walls or structural steel.

        OBSERVATIONS (SITE VISIT)
                 The majority of the 1st floor space is finished with a drop ceiling (See Photograph 10). The ceiling
        looks to be in good condition and shows no signs of deterioration.
                 Interior and exterior walls are primarily exposed CMU block. The exterior CMU block has some
        cracking in multiple areas, primarily near wall openings (See Photograph 11 and 12). The cracking is
        considered minor and does not significantly impact its structural capacity. Other walls are finished with a
        gypsum sheathing, which appears to be in good condition and shows no signs of distress.

                  Where visible, the slab-on-grade appears to be in good condition. There is minor cracking visible
         in a few areas, but it does not have a significant structural impact (See Photograph 17). The concrete
         mezzanine slab appears to be in generally good condition. There are some areas where cracking has
         occurred and a patch has been applied (See Photograph 15). The 1st floor PC plank appears to be in good
         condition (See Photograph 16). No cracks are visible and the plank shows no visible signs of distress.
                  The structural steel and steel joists observed on site appear to be in good condition (See
         Photograph 13 and 14). There are no signs or rust or other deterioration. They appear to be functioning
         properly with no signs of distress.
                  As viewed from above, the roof appears to be in good condition. There are no visible signs of
         water damage or drainage issues.

         CONCLUSIONS
                  The structure observed appears to be consistent with the framing shown in the design drawings.
         The cracking observed in both the CMU walls is minor and does not affect the structural capacity. The
         cracking in the concrete slab-on-grade is also minor and considered normal wear and tear. The cracking
         observed in the mezzanine slab looks to be minor. Further investigation should be done to determine when
         the cracks in the slab occurred and when the patch was applied. It is the opinion of PE that the building is in
         good structural condition with no remediation work required.

SUMMARY

         In conclusion, the existing structural systems observed in the three Cottage Grove Municipal Facilities all
appear in good condition. Any signs of deterioration observed are minor seem consistent with normal wear and tear.
They do not significantly impact the structural capacity of the building in question.

        Please review the above report and contact PE’s office if further clarification is necessary or if additional
questions develop.

Sincerely,

      FIRE AND EMS, ADMINISTRATION, & MAINTENANCE
                       BUILDINGS
             VILLAGE OF COTTAGE GROVE, WISCONSIN

                                   INTRODUCTION

A site visit was made on July 19, 2006 to review the existing plumbing, heating,
ventilating and air conditioning systems serving the above facilities.

Following are descriptions of the existing systems serving the buildings. The description
of the systems is based on review of existing mechanical drawings and site observations.

Comments with regard to the condition of the existing systems are based on observations
made during the site visit and should not be construed as a complete evaluation of the
systems and their conditions.


ADMINISTRATION BUILDING: HVAC SYSTEMS

ASSESSMENT

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System

The building is heated and air conditioned
by four Carrier Model 58SXC100G, gas-
fired, up-flow, sealed combustion, high
efficiency furnaces. The furnaces have
excellent combustion efficiency ratings of
93%. Each furnace has a rated volume of
2,000 cfm supply air with a scheduled
minimum outdoor ventilation air of 500
cfm. The furnaces are located in two
separate mechanical rooms and were
installed as original equipment when the
building was constructed in 1993.




                                         Page 1
Air conditioning for each
furnace is provided by an
evaporative cooling coil
located in the discharge side
of the ductwork matching
condensing unit dedicated for
each furnace. The
condensing units are located
on grade along the north side
of the building. Each
condensing unit is rated at 5
tons of air conditioning.

Each furnace is equipped
with a Honeywell 7-day, programmable electric thermostat. There is one thermostat for
each furnace.

The toilet rooms, staff room, meeting room, and janitor closets
have dedicated exhaust fans. The total scheduled exhaust
volume is slightly less than the total scheduled supply volume.
The result is that, when operating properly, the building should
be at a slight positive pressure relative to the outdoors. This
should mean that the influx of cold air during the winter when
entrance doors are open should be minimized. If the amount of
outdoor ventilation air to each furnace is less than scheduled, the
opposite may be true.

The vestibule and exit door corridors are equipped with electric
wall heaters that have their own integral thermostats


General Comments

   1. The original installation shows strong evidence of quality workmanship. The
      ductwork is clearly labeled, neatly insulated, quality manual balancing dampers
      are installed, and there is evidence that the furnace air volumes were measured
      and balanced.
   2. The amount of outside air scheduled for each furnace is 25% of the total airflow
      of the furnace. While there is no evidence to the contrary, most furnaces like
      these usually operate at a limit of around 20% maximum outdoor air.
   3. The fact that there are only four thermostats to serve the entire building means
      that most workers will have comfort complaints sometime during the year. This
      is most common in open office areas having adjacent entrance doors. It is
      expected that the building suffers, not from heating or cooling capacity, but from
      a lack of control due to the limited number of thermostatically controlled zones in
      the building.



                                           Page 2
   4. The building does not have any type of baseboard or perimeter heating to offset
      winter heat losses along the exterior walls. Not all buildings require perimeter
      heating, but as a general rule of thumb, when the heat loss in a building’s exterior
      envelope exceeds 400 btus/lineal foot of wall, then consideration should be given
      to providing some type of perimeter skin heat.


APPARENT CODE VIOLATIONS

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System

   1. None noticed.

PROJECTION OF EQUIPMENT USEFUL LIFE

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System

The building HVAC system appears to be reasonably well maintained, and no equipment
appears to be in imminent requirement of replacement. The nominal expected useful
service life of various pieces of HVAC equipment is listed in the ASHRAE Applications
Handbook (2003 edition). The applicable nominal lives of the HVAC equipment in the
building are as follows:

Equipment             Age             ASHRAE                 Est. Useful Remaining Life
Furnaces              13 years        18 years               5 to 10 years
Condensing Units      15 years        15 years               2 to 7 years
Thermostats           13 years        16 years               5 to 10 years
Electric Heaters      13 years        13 years               2 to 5 years

As dictated by architectural and Owner end-use requirements, the HVAC equipment in
the future may or may not be required to be different than it is today. If, operationally,
the end-use remains similar, then it is recommended that future equipment replacement
be on a one for one basis using similar equipment. This is most cost effective.
Consideration could also be given to adding perimeter heat to specific areas, and adding
sub-zoning controls to the four furnaces to allow more occupants control over their
environment.

Opinion of Probable Cost

HVAC: $5.00 to $7.00 per square foot.

MAINTENANCE BUILDING: HVAC SYSTEMS

ASSESSMENT

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System

The front offices of the building, the shop office, and break room are heated and air
conditioned by one gas-fired, sealed combustion, high efficiency furnace. The furnace
has an estimated volume of 1,600 cfm supply air
with no known outdoor ventilation air. The
furnace is located in a dry walled enclosure
located above a storage room and appears to have
been installed as original equipment when the
building was constructed in 1996. Access to the
furnace is almost non-existent. In order to get to
the furnace, a ladder must be used and one must
climb onto the ceiling of room below. Old
computers, printers, boxes, etc., must be moved in
order to gain access to the hole cut into the
drywall. It is not known when the unit was last
serviced.

There is a roof mounted condensing unit that
serves the furnace. The unit is a Comfortmaker
Model AG 048GAI, and has a nominal capacity
of 4 tons of cooling. It appears to be original.

The furnace is equipped with a Honeywell 7-day,
programmable electric thermostat.

The toilet rooms have dedicated Broan type exhaust fans. The fans operate by a wall
switch that also controls the light in the toilet room.

The vehicle maintenance/storage
bay is heated by a roof mounted,
gas-fired heating and ventilating
unit. It is an InterCity Products
Model ZAXB050EPB unit. It
has a natural gas input of
270,000 btus with an output of
216,000 btus when on high fire.
It is controlled by a wall
mounted electric Honeywell
thermostat.




                                         Page 4
General Comments

   1. There are complaints that
      the front offices are cold
      during the winter. This is
      not surprising given the
      relatively poor access to
      the furnace for servicing.
      It is suspected that the
      filters and/or cooling coil
      are plugged.
   2. The vehicle
      maintenance/storage bay
      is lacking proper exhaust
      which must be provided
      if more than 5 vehicles
      are stored in the building.
      Staff reported that up to 10 vehicles are normally stored.

APPARENT CODE VIOLATIONS

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System

   1. The Wisconsin code requires that garages storing over 5 vehicles or greater than
      850 square feet in area be exhausted at the rate of ½ cfm per square foot of floor
      area. This volume could be less if the space was continuously monitored for
      carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide.
   2. The Wisconsin code requires that office spaces be provided with a minimum of
      7.5 cfm of outdoor air whenever they are occupied. At the present time, there is
      an office worker in the front of the building and the furnace serving the worker
      has no provision for outdoor air.
   3. The Wisconsin code requires that rooms containing appliances (e.g., the furnace)
      shall be provided with a door and an unobstructed passageway measuring not less
      than 36 inches wide by 80 inches high. If in an attic, then the there must be an
      unobstructed access and an opening large enough to allow the removal of the
      appliance.

PROJECTION OF EQUIPMENT USEFUL LIFE

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System

The building HVAC system appears to have no regularly scheduled maintenance. The
nominal expected useful service life of various pieces of HVAC equipment is listed in the
ASHRAE Applications Handbook (2003 edition). The applicable nominal lives of the
HVAC equipment in the building are as follows:



                                         Page 5
Equipment             Age             ASHRAE                 Est. Useful Remaining Life
Furnace               10 years        18 years               Unknown
Condensing Unit       10 years        15 years               2 to 7 years
Thermostats           10 years        16 years               5 to 10 years
Rooftop HV Unit       10 years        15 years               4 to 7 years

Recognizing that the building is a maintenance shop, no wholesale changes to the HVAC
system are required. Modifications are in order, to be sure. It is recommended that the
furnace be provided with proper access and service. The furnace should be retrofitted
with a small amount of code required outside air equal to at least 7.5 cfm per person.
This could be provided by a duct and damper arrangement installed through the roof to
the unit. If the front offices are used continuously in the future, then it might be to the
Owner’s advantage to install baseboard (electric) along the perimeter walls that need
heating. The vehicle bay should be provided with an exhaust system to meet code. The
exhaust fan should be sized and controlled in conjunction with the existing rooftop
heating/ventilating unit.

Opinion of Probable Cost

HVAC: $1.50 to $2.50 per square foot (minimum)
      $4.50 to $6.00 per square foot (maximum) depending on office renovation

FIRE STATION: HVAC SYSTEMS

ASSESSMENT

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System

Lower Level

The lower level is heated and
air conditioned by two Trane,
Model XE90, gas-fired,
sealed combustion, high
efficiency furnaces. Furnace
F-1, the second furnace on
the right in the photo, was
installed as original
equipment. The furnace has
an excellent combustion
efficiency rating of 93%.
The furnace has a rated
volume of 1,200 cfm supply          Furnace 2                                     Furnace 1
air with a scheduled
minimum outdoor ventilation air of 300 cfm. The second furnace (F-3) serving the
Lower Level was install sometime in 1999 and has an estimated 1,400 cfm supply air
with an unknown quantity of outdoor ventilation. While access to the furnace room was
locked during our visit, it is probable that the unit shares the same excellent combustion
efficiency as furnace F-1. Furnace F-1 appears to be in excellent condition with evidence
of regular maintenance.

Air conditioning for each furnace is provided by an evaporative cooling coil located in
the discharge side of the ductwork and a matching condensing unit dedicated for each
furnace. The condensing units are located on grade outside of the building. The
condensing unit serving furnace F-1 is rated at 3 tons of air conditioning, while the unit
serving furnace F-3 is rated at 3-1/2 tons.

Each furnace is equipped with a Honeywell 7-day, programmable electric thermostat.
There is one thermostat for each furnace.

First Floor

South of West Entrance and Stairwell

This area includes the lounge and EMS. It is heated and air conditioned by one Trane
gas-fired, sealed combustion, high efficiency furnace. Furnace F-2, the first furnace on
the left in the photo shown above for the Lower Level, was installed as original
equipment. The furnace has an excellent combustion efficiency rating of 93%. The
furnace has a rated volume of 1,990 cfm supply air with a scheduled minimum outdoor


                                          Page 7
ventilation air of 300 cfm. Like the furnace F-1, furnace F-2 appears to be in excellent
condition with evidence of regular maintenance.

Air conditioning for the
furnace is provided by an
evaporative cooling coil
located in the discharge side of
the ductwork and a matching
condensing unit dedicated for
the furnace. The condensing
units for furnace F-1 and F-2
are located on grade outside of
the building near the
emergency generator. The             Condensing
condensing unit serving              Units for F-1
furnace F-2 is rated at 4.3 tons     and F-2
of air conditioning.

The furnace is equipped with a Honeywell 7-day, programmable electric thermostat.
There is one thermostat for each furnace.

Meeting Room

The meeting room is served by a
rooftop unit, RTU-1. The unit is a
Trane Model YCD048. It has a
nominal 1,520 cfm of supply air         Condensing Unit                     RTU-1
with a scheduled 330 cfm of             CU-3 for AHU-1
outside ventilation air. The unit
has a gas-fired heating section
having an input of 90,000 btus and
an output of 70,000 btus which
equates to a combustion efficiency
of 78%. The unit has 4 tons of air
conditioning to supply the meeting
room. Staff personnel indicated
that the meeting room had
difficulty maintaining comfort
levels. The rooftop unit would continuously cycle between cold air and hot air. The
original thermostat was changed recently, and it is now reported that the comfort levels
have improved because the unit no longer cycles between heating and cooling as it
previously did.




                                          Page 8
Center of Building including Conference, Offices, Training, Dispatch, and Kitchen and
Second Floor

This part of the building is served by an horizontal air handler, AHU-1, hanging from the
ceiling in a room on the second floor. The unit has a nominal air flow of 2,000 cfm with
a scheduled outside air ventilation volume of 400 cfm. The unit has an indirect gas-fired
heater having a heating capacity of approximately 40,000 btus of unknown combustion
efficiency. A five ton condensing unit, CU-3, located on the roof next to RTU-1 provides
air conditioning to the spaces.

Besides being served by AHU-1, Dispatch is also heated by a continuous bank of electric
heating elements installed behind the service counters along the entire three window
walls.

The second floor has been renovated since the building was constructed and it appears
that AHU-1 was tapped into to provide heating and air conditioning for the spaces.

The toilet rooms and shower rooms have dedicated exhaust fans that appear to meet code.

Apparatus Bay and Hose Tower

The Apparatus Bay was originally heated
only with a Titan direct-fired gas make up
air unit. The unit has a scheduled supply air
of 9,500 cfm and 3,400 cfm of outside air.
The unit has a scheduled heating capacity of
596,000 btus. From discussions with staff,
the Apparatus Bay was not kept warm
enough during winter by only running the
Titan unit.


                                         Consequently, in 2005, an infrared heating
                                         system was installed to supplement the heating
                                         in the space. An Ener Radiant XL heating
                                         system was installed throughout the Bay, and it
                                         is now reported that last winter heating issues
                                         were resolved. There are six ceiling fans
                                         installed to help destratify the air in the Bay.




The Apparatus Bay has an exhaust fan, EF-4, rated at 3,400 cfm, to exhaust the Bay.
This volume appropriately matches the amount of outside air that the Titan unit provides
to the space. The exhaust fan is controlled, as code allows, by a Vulcain Model VA201C,



                                          Page 9
Gas Detection Controller. The controller measures CO and NO2 and controls the exhaust
fan operation so that the fan runs whenever the CO and NO2 levels exceed a
predetermined level.

The Apparatus Bay also has a Carmon Vehicle Exhaust
System installed. The purpose of the system is to
capture vehicle exhaust emissions at the tailpipe source
and evacuate the emissions safely out of the building.
The system installed is a Carmon system.
Unfortunately, the system utilizes fixed hose drops that
don’t allow any flexibility. The drops are placed
throughout the Bay and unless a truck is in the vicinity
of a drop, the system cannot be easily used to collect
exhaust. At the present time, the only vehicle using the
system is the Ladder Truck. During the site survey, the
balance of the flexible hoses were found unused and in
a box in the Lower Level.

The Hose Tower is equipped with circulating fan and
indirect gas-fired heating unit to aid in the drying of the hoses. It was not in operation
during the site visit.

General Comments

   1. The building is generally well maintained from an HVAC perspective. Filters on
      units appear to be regularly changed, and there is evidence of seasonal
      maintenance.
   2. The Vulcain Gas Detector Controller is no longer being made, so while
      maintenance may not be an issue in the short term, parts availability in the future
      may become an issue.
   3. The Carmon vehicle exhaust system is essentially a non-functioning piece of
      equipment given it’s lack of flexibility.


APPARENT CODE VIOLATIONS

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System

   1. Present code requires that the Apparatus Bay exhaust fan be run a minimum of
      five hours per day even with the gas detector controller. It is not known if this is
      the case.

As dictated by architectural and Owner end-use requirements, the HVAC equipment in
the future may or may not be required to be different than it is today. If, operationally,
the end-use remains similar, then it is recommended that future equipment replacement
be on a one for one basis using similar equipment. This is most cost effective.

If the requirement for a fully functional vehicle exhaust system is deemed necessary, then
a system similar to a Plymovent of Blaschke system is strongly recommended. These
types of systems allow drive-thru bays, back up bays, and provide maximum flexibility
and ease of use.

Opinion of Probable Cost

HVAC remodeling : $9.00 to $12.00 per square foot.
Vehicle Tailpipe Exhaust: $10,000 per vehicle drop.

VILLAGE HALL: PLUMBING SYSTEMS

ASSESSMENT

Sanitary Drainage System

Sanitary waste is discharged by gravity from the building. The design of the interior
drainage system reflects the Plumbing Code at the time of construction.

The above ground waste and vent piping material appears to be polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
with solvent hub and spigot joints. The above ground waste and vent piping appears to be
in good condition.

Floor drains are equipped with nickel bronze tops. The underground waste and vent
piping was not accessible for review. No assessment of condition can be made unless
exposed and inspected.

Storm Drainage System

Storm water is collected by exterior gutters, downspouts and discharges to grade.

Domestic Water System

The design of the domestic water service and distribution system generally reflects the
Plumbing Code at the time of construction. The building is supplied by a 1-1/4 inch water
service. Its ¾-inch meter has a remote register and a sampling faucet.

The domestic water distribution system appears to consist of copper pipe with soldered
fittings and bronze gate valves rated for 600 psi. Pipe insulation of polyurethane foam is
poorly installed. Pipe labels are stenciled and valve tags are of brass tags. A water
softener treats hot water for the building. The softener has a mechanical control and
demand meter. The backwash pipe is not fitted with a code-complying vacuum breaker
tee. The softener system is equipped with shutoff valves and a bypass valve. The piping
at the meter and at the urinal flush valve deflect with modest pressure.

The domestic hot water is supplied from a 30 gallon Rheem electric water heater. The
water heater is equipped with thermometers, a circulation pump and an inlet check valve.
It is not equipped with an expansion tank. One thermometer is not working.

The appearance of spout outlets suggests an accumulation of mineral deposits caused by
hard water. The source is likely to be the cold water which is not treated by the softener.

Fire Suppression Systems

No sprinkler system was observed.




                                          Page 12
Plumbing Fixtures

In general, the plumbing fixtures appear to be in excellent condition, with the following
observations.

Hose Bib: Brass, chrome-plated, loose-keyed, exposed-type short spout, freeze-resistant,
              hose connection vacuum breaker.

Drinking Fountain: a pair of surface-mounted electric water cooler, basin of stainless
             steel, vinyl covered steel base, ADA.

Lavatory: Self-rimming, vitreous china, ADA, centerset single-lever metered faucet,
               tubular brass trap, offset grid strainer, no insulation. Run time exceeds 20
               seconds

Mop Basin: acrylic basin, 24-inch square, chrome-plated brass faucet and spout vacuum
             breaker, hose bracket and mop hangers. The faucet lacks supply stops.

Sink: Self-rimming, stainless steel single compartment sink, deck-mounted faucet with
              single-lever, swing spout and vegetable spray, plastic trap

Urinal: Wall-mounted, wash-down, vitreous china, top-spud urinal with hand operated
              exposed flush valve. The concealed electric portion of a former sensor
              control remains in the wall behind the flush handle.

Water Closet: Floor outlet, tank type, vitreous china water closet, 3.5 gallon per flush,
              ADA design, American Standard.

General Comments

   1. Eliminate two potential health hazards by installing a vacuum breaker tee at the
      water softener and a hose connection vacuum breaker at the mop basin. Add code-
      required supply stops at the mop basin.
   2. A timer on the hot water circulation pump will meet the energy code. An
      expansion tank on the cold water side of the water heater is then recommended.
   3. It is recommended that piping at the meter and urinal be fully secured.
   4. The water closets do not meet current Federal water conservation requirements.
   5. It is recommended that cold water to fixtures, in addition to the hot water, be
      softened. A larger water softener is then required and the exterior hose bibs will
      require a separate distribution system. The metering faucets and all aerators are
      recommended to be replaced since the revised softener will improved their
      performance.
   6. It is recommended that pipe insulation be repaired or replaced and relabeled if
      necessary.
   7. ADA deficiencies include: supplies and traps on lavatories do not have insulation.

A single garage catch basin serves the vehicle maintenance space.

Storm Drainage System

Storm water is collected by exterior gutters, downspouts and discharges to grade.

Domestic Water System

The design of the domestic water service and distribution system generally reflects the
Plumbing Code at the time of construction. The building is supplied by a 1-1/2 inch water
service located more than 30 feet from the building exterior, which is beyond the three
foot limitation of the Plumbing Code. Its ¾-inch meter has a remote register.

The domestic water distribution system is generally located below the floor. It appears to
consist of copper pipe with soldered fittings and bronze gate valves. Pipe insulation,
poorly installed in short lengths of hot water pipe only, is polyurethane foam. Pipes are
not labeled and valves are not tagged.

The domestic hot water is supplied from (2) Rheem electric water heaters located in two
separate locations. The water heaters are equipped with an inlet shutoff valve and relief
valve. They are not equipped with an outlet shutoff valve. On one of them, the relief
valve discharge is piped to another room, which is not code allowed.

The appearance of spout outlets suggests an accumulation of mineral deposits caused by
hard water.

Fire Suppression Systems

No sprinkler system was observed.

Water Closet: Floor outlet, tank type, vitreous china water closet, 3.5 gallon per flush,
              ADA design, American Standard.

General Comments

   1. The water closets do not meet current Federal water conservation requirements.
   2. The west water heater requires revising the relief valve to discharge into the
      vehicle maintenance space.
   3. It is recommended that hot and cold water supply to fixtures be treated with a
      water softener. The exterior hose bibs will then require a separate distribution
      system.
   4. It is recommended that the insulation of the hot water piping be repaired or
      replaced.
   5. It is recommended that pipes be labeled and valves tagged.
   6. ADA deficiencies include: supplies and traps on lavatories do not have insulation
      and drinking fountains are at one level only.

ASSESSMENT

Sanitary Drainage System

Sanitary waste is discharged by gravity from the building through two 4-inch laterals.

The above ground waste and vent piping material appears to be polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
with solvent hub and spigot joints. The above ground waste and vent piping appears to be
in good condition.

Floor drains and floor cleanouts with nickel bronze tops are by J.R. Smith. The
underground waste and vent piping was not accessible for review. No assessment of
condition can be made unless exposed and inspected.

A sump pump with a simplex submersible pump connects to a floor drain at the base of
the hose tower.

A garage catch basin is connected to each of three trench drains and is served by one of
the sewer laterals. The material of the basin grates and trench drain body and grates is
cast iron. No vent piping is shown on the drawings nor observed as would be expected
for a code-compliant design. Otherwise, the design of the interior drainage system
reflects the Plumbing Code at the time of construction.

Storm Drainage System

The storm water is collected by roof drains with interior conductors and drain piping.
Drain body and dome appear to be cast iron.

The piping material appears to be polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with solvent hub and spigot
joints. The underground piping was not accessible for review. No assessment of condition
can be made unless exposed and inspected.

Water Supply System

Except as noted, the design of the domestic water service and distribution system
generally reflects the Plumbing Code at the time of construction. The building is supplied
by (2) 2-inch water services. The one entering the southwest wall of the basement
supplies domestic. Its ¾-inch meter has a remote register, sampling faucet and 2-inch ball
valves rated for 175 psi. The other service enters the northwest corner of the apparatus
bay with a 1-1/2 inch meter, remote register and no bypass or sampling faucet. It
connects to two 1-1/2 inch fire hose connections without backflow preventers.

The domestic water distribution piping system appears to consist of copper pipe with
soldered fittings and bronze gate valves. Pipe insulation is fiber glass with kraft vapor
barrier or mastic. The distribution system includes separate cold water for softened and


                                         Page 20
unsoftened water as well as hot water with hot water return. Pipes are secured to the
building with either saddles below the pipe insulation or clamps directly attached to the
pipes. Identity includes brass valve tags and adhesive-backed pipe labels.

The softened water is treated with a simplex ion exchange water softener, Hellenbrand
H100-32. The softener is equipped with a mechanical control and a demand meter. The
backwash pipe is fitted with a code-complying vacuum breaker tee. The softener system
is equipped with an inlet check valve, shutoff valves and a bypass valve.

The domestic hot water is supplied from a 40 gallon gas water heater, A.O. Smith FPSH
40. The water heating system is equipped with an expansion tank, an outlet thermometer,
vacuum relief valve, inlet shutoff valve, and a recirculation pump. It is not equipped with
an inlet check valve, outlet shutoff valve, pump motor controller or combustion-air intake
pipe to the exterior.

Staff has reported water quality issues that occurred prior to the installation of the water
softener.

Fire Suppression Systems

No sprinkler system was observed. A fire hydrant was observed close to the front
overhead doors. A partial dry manual standpipe with hose connections and exterior
Siamese connection was observed in the hose tower.

Compressed Air System

A two-stage air compressor, Devilbiss rated at 10 CFM @ 90 psi but set at 138 psi, with
air receiver supplies air to several apparatus. The supply pressure regulator is set for 95
psi. Four methods remove moisture from the compressed air: a Wright-Austin tank
automatic drain, a Wright-Austin cast iron automatic separator, a dirt and moisture leg for
manual drainage, and a Wilkerson line filter near each hose drop.

The distribution pipe material is black steel with threaded joints. Each hose drop to
apparatus includes the line filter and a hose reel.

              a. Wall hung, vitreous china, ADA, centerset single-lever faucet, tubular
                  brass trap, offset grid strainer, no insulation.
              b. Self-rimming oval vitreous china, ADA, centerset single-lever faucet,
                  tubular brass trap, offset grid strainer, no insulation.

Mop Basin: acrylic basin, 24-inch square, chrome-plated brass faucet with integral stops
             and hose connection vacuum breaker, hose bracket and mop hangers

Shower: The building has several styles of showers
             a. Concealed thermostatic mixing valve, lever handle, handheld shower,
                 vinyl hose, sliding bracket, wall outlet, elevated vacuum bracket with
                 wall flanges, ADA-complying, Powers L425
             b. Concealed thermostatic mixing valve, lever handle, swivel shower
                 showerhead, elevated vacuum bracket with wall flanges, Powers L425
             c. Surface-mounted thermostatic mixing valve, lever handle, two vandal-
                 resistant shower heads, diverter valve, Powers Hydrol-Panel

Sink: The building has several styles of sinks
               a. Self-rimming, stainless steel single compartment sink, deck-mounted
                  faucet with swing spout, plastic trap
               b. Self-rimming, stainless steel double compartment sink, deck-mounted
                  faucet with pull-out spout, plastic trap, dishwasher connections and
                  under-counter grease interceptor, Schier AT 1815-L
               c. Free-standing, stainless steel double compartment sink with left and
                  right drain boards, pair of backsplash-mounted faucets with swing
                  spouts and lever handles, plastic traps

Urinal: Wall-mounted, wash-down, vitreous china, top-spud urinal with hand operated
              exposed flush valve.

Water Closet: Floor outlet, tank type, vitreous china water closet, 1.6 gallon per flush,
              ADA design but the handle location is not on the wide side of the fixture
              in most toilet rooms, American Standard.

General Comments

   5. The water service and 1-1/2 inch fire hose connection are not code-compliant,
      neither with the current code nor at the time of construction. A bypass is required
      at the meter and a backflow preventer, reduced pressure principle type, is required
      either at the start the distribution or at each hose connection. A garden hose bib
      was erroneously included near each the fire hose connection and should be
      removed since it lacks a shutoff valve.



                                         Page 22
   6. The garage catch basin design, as indicated on the drawings, is not code-
      compliant, neither with the current code nor at the time of construction. The
      current code requirement is a vent connection at the basin outlet, a trapped inlet
      and a trapped outlet.
   7. It is recommended that the water heater be equipped with an inlet check valve, an
      outlet shutoff valve, a pump motor controller, and a combustion-air intake pipe to
      the exterior. The capacity of the water heater appears marginal given the size of
      the commercial washer in the laundry.
   8. The discharge of the compressed air receiver is diverted from the floor drain to a
      covered container that appears excessively saturated with oil.
   9. ADA deficiencies include: the flush handles on several water closets are not on
      the wide side of the fixture, supplies and traps on lavatories do not have
      insulation, drinking fountains are at one level only.

                        BUILDINGS

             VILLAGE OF COTTAGE GROVE, WISCONSIN

                                   INTRODUCTION

A site visit was made on July 26, 2006 to review the existing electrical systems serving
the above facilities. Following are descriptions of the existing systems serving the
buildings. The description of the systems is based on review of existing electrical
drawings and site observations. Comments made in regard to the condition of the
existing system are based on observations made during the site visit and should not be
construed as a complete evaluation of the system and their conditions.


ADMINISTRATION BUILDING: ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS


ASSESSMENT

Electric Service and Power Distribution

The building is served by a utility transformer on the north side of the building. The
service is 400A, 120/208 volt, 3-phase 4-wire. No demand data was available from the
utility. There is one 400A panelboard serving the entire building. There is room for at
least 10 more 20A/1P circuits.

Emergency Generator and Transfer Switch

This building does not have an emergency generator.

Interior and Exterior Lighting

The majority of interior lighting is T8 fluorescent with electronic ballasts. The storage
and mechanical rooms have T12 fluorescent lamps. Because of the minimal usage of
these rooms, the energy savings from replacing them with T8 fluorescent will not provide
a payback of the cost to retrofit. Other fixtures have either compact fluorescent or biax
lamps; which are still specified in new construction.

The majority of exterior lighting, both building mounted and parking lot fixtures, is metal
halide. There are compact fluorescent wall sconces at the main entrance. This lighting is
controlled via photocell on/timeclock off.




                                          Page 1
Fire Alarm

This building does not have a fire alarm system. Current Code does not require one in a
business occupancy of this size.

Intercom and Clock Systems

This building does not have an intercom or clock systems.

Security Systems

This building does not have intrusion alarm, keyless entry, or closed-circuit television
systems.

Phone System

This building has its own PBX-type Samsung phone switch with voicemail. There are
five Centrex lines serving the building and 10 phones are connected to the system. The
system is serviced by Precision Communications in Sun Prairie, WI. The system is
expandable to handle additional phones and voicemail boxes.

Structured Cabling

This building has Cat 5e data and voice outlets in addition to wireless access points.
There is no central standardized data closet. If additional data outlets are installed, the
data system should be reworked to follow standard telecommunication system design
with a grounded data rack, patch panels, etc. This building is not connected to a Village-
wide network; only the municipal court in this building and police department building
are interconnected.

Audio/Video

The meeting room in this building is equipped with a sound system and 3 cameras – 2
fixed and 1 stand mounted for distributing the board meetings to the local cable television
company to broadcast to the community. The mixing equipment is rack- and desk-
mounted in the adjacent storage room.


APPARENT CODE VIOLATIONS

Interior and Exterior Lighting

None of the battery-powered emergency egress lighting operated when tested. This
lighting is Code required in any path of egress and room with an occupant load greater
than 50 persons (i.e. meeting room). Therefore, it should be replaced.




                                          Page 2
Under current Code emergency egress lighting is also required immediately outside of
each exit. This is a new Code since the construction of this building. Existing buildings
are not required to comply with the new Code, however if other emergency egress
lighting is being replaced it is logical that this lighting is added at the same time.

The existing exit lights are compact fluorescent. The batteries of the exit lights were not
tested at time of walk-thru, but it is likely that they are not operational. Therefore, the
exits should be replaced with LED, more energy efficient exits.


PROJECTION OF EQUIPMENT USEFUL LIFE

Electric Service and Power Distribution

The electrical service and power distribution equipment has at least another 15 years of
useful life. The service does not have the capacity for an addition. However the possible
addition of electric heat for perimeter offices could be accommodated. An additional
panel may need to be installed to accommodate the additional circuits if the baseboard
requires a 2 or 3-pole breaker.

Interior and Exterior Lighting

The interior and exterior lighting has at least another 10 years of useful life remaining.

Phone System

The existing phone switch is relatively new and has at least another 10 years of useful life
remaining.

Structured Cabling

Technology is always changing and the existing voice and phone cabling will need to be
adapted in the coming years. This is typical in new construction as well. With the use of
wireless network technology, the existing cabling will likely be adequate for another 10
years. A centralized data closet should be provided if an addition or remodeling will be
completed.

Audio/Video

The audio and video system in the Board Room is new. There is no need for this system
to be updated. However, there could be better organization of the head-end equipment in
the adjacent data room.

MAINTENANCE BUILDING: ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS

ASSESSMENT

Electric Service and Power Distribution

The building is served by a utility transformer on the north side of the building. The
service is 1,200A, 120/208 volt, 3-phase 4-wire. The utility demand for this building is
recorded as 20kW or approximately 50A per phase. The main distribution panel does not
have a main breaker and therefore utilizes the “6-disconnect” rule per the National
Electrical Code. There are currently 4 breakers, so only two additional breakers can be
added to the main panel to meet the “6-disconnect” limit. There are four distribution
panels in addition to this main service panel. There is adequate space in this equipment
for additional circuits.

Emergency Generator and Transfer Switch

This building does not have an emergency generator.

Interior and Exterior Lighting

The shop area has metal halide low-bay fixtures with some fluorescent strips that remain
on as night lights. There is no emergency egress lighting in the machine shop area. The
office area has T8 fluorescent lighting with electronic ballasts.

The building mounted exterior lighting is metal halide Ruud wall-packs to provide
general illumination.

The existing exit lights are battery powered compact fluorescent type.

Fire Alarm

This building does not have a fire alarm system. Current Code does not require one in an
occupancy of this type and size.

Intercom and Clock Systems

This building does not have an intercom or clock systems.

Security Systems

This building does not have intrusion alarm, keyless entry, or closed-circuit television
systems.




                                          Page 5
Phone System

This building has its own PBX-type AT&T phone switch with voicemail. It is located on
the north wall of the machine shop. The system is expandable to handle additional
phones and voicemail boxes.

Structured Cabling

This building has Cat 5e data and voice outlets in addition to wireless access point
located along the north wall of the machine shop. There is no central standardized data
closet. If additional data outlets are installed, the data system should be reworked to
follow standard telecommunication system design with a grounded data rack, patch
panels, etc. This building is not connected to a Village-wide network.

Audio/Video

None.


APPARENT CODE VIOLATIONS

Interior and Exterior Lighting

The machine shop does not have emergency egress lighting. The current Code requires 1
foot-candle of emergency egress lighting in all paths of egress. Therefore, emergency
egress battery pack lighting should be installed.


PROJECTION OF EQUIPMENT USEFUL LIFE

Electric Service and Power Distribution

The electrical service and power distribution equipment has at least another 20 years of
useful life. The service would be large enough to serve a building addition and the
addition of an exhaust system in the garage area and electric baseboard heaters in the
office area.

Interior and Exterior Lighting

The interior and exterior lighting has at least another 15 years of useful life. The existing
compact fluorescent type exit lights could be replaced with more energy efficient LED-
type.

FIRE STATION: ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS

ASSESSMENT

Electric Service and Power Distribution

The building is served by a utility transformer on the south side of the building. The
service is 800A, 120/208 volt, 3-phase 4-wire. No demand data was available from the
utility. The main service panel is located in the basement. Other distribution panels are
located throughout the building.

Emergency Generator and Transfer Switch

This building has a 55kW natural gas generator. It is located outside of the building,
adjacent to the utility transformer. There is only one automatic transfer switch. It is
located in the basement electrical room adjacent to the main service panel. It feeds Panel
“EA”, which sub-feeds Panel “EB”. These two emergency panels serve both life safety
and non-life-safety loads.

Interior and Exterior Lighting

The majority of the interior lighting is T8 fluorescent. The apparatus bay has metal
halide fixtures. Some of these fixtures (the ones connected to the emergency lighting
circuit) have quartz restrike to have instant-on lighting if the power turns off and on
quickly.

Both building mounted and parking lot exterior lighting is metal halide. It is controlled
via photocell on/timeclock off or photocell on/photocell off.

Emergency egress lighting is provided by select fixtures connected to emergency lighting
circuits.

Exit lights are energy efficient LED-type.

Fire Alarm

An addressable Fire-Lite MS-9200 fire alarm system is installed in this building. It is
serviced by Com-Tronics in Madison. Under the current Code, a business occupancy like
this would not require a fire alarm system unless the occupant load is greater than 500
persons or any floor above or below the lowest level of exit has an occupant load greater
than 100 persons. However, the sleeping rooms in this building are required to have
single-station smoke alarms that have both audible and visual notification. The path of
egress out of the sleeping rooms must also have smoke detection. The elevator also
requires a fire alarm recall system. Therefore, because of these two requirements and the
fact that this building houses a fire department, it is logical to have a fire alarm system
throughout the building.



                                          Page 8
The existing system consists of manual pull stations at all exterior exits and exits from
each floor level; heat detection in mechanical spaces, apparatus room, kitchen; smoke
detection in storage areas, dispatch, and EMS sleeping rooms and lounge; duct smoke
detectors; audible notification throughout; visual notification in toilet rooms, laundry,
training, meeting room, conference room, and first floor EMS sleeping rooms.

The EMS sleeping rooms in the basement do not have smoke detection or visual and
audible notification.

Intercom and Clock Systems

This building has approximately 15 speakers throughout the building and an amplifier to
annunciate the radio paging for the EMS and fire services. This amplifier could be tied to
the phone system as well to allow paging of the entire building via any phone.

This building does not have a clock system.

Security Systems

This building does not have intrusion alarm, electronic keyless entry, or closed-circuit
television systems.

Phone System

This building has its own Comdial PBX-type phone switch with voicemail. The system
is expandable to handle additional phones and voicemail boxes. A lightning strike
recently caused some problems with the system, but it has been repaired and is now
operating correctly.

Currently the phone system is not tied into the ceiling/wall mounted speakers located
throughout the building. However, the occupants indicated a desire to allow paging thru
the phone system to annunciate over the speakers as well.

Structured Cabling

This building has Cat 5e data and voice outlets in addition to wireless access points.
There is no central standardized data closet. If additional data outlets are installed, the
data system should be reworked to follow standard telecommunication system design
with a grounded data rack, patch panels, etc. This building is not connected to a Village-
wide network.

Audio/Video

None.

APPARENT CODE VIOLATIONS

Emergency Generator and Transfer Switch

Current WI Comm 16 requires the utility transformer to be at least 20’ away from the
emergency generator incase one of the two pieces of equipment experiences a violent end
of life it would not take out the other piece of equipment. Existing installations are not
required to comply with current Code, but it is an item that should be noted. It would not
be recommended to move the generator at this time.

The transfer switch and emergency panelboards are located adjacent to the main service
panel. This violates NFPA 110. The emergency power system equipment can not be
located in the same room as the main service panel. Again, existing installations are not
required to comply with current Code, but it is an item that should be noted. It would not
be recommended to move the transfer switch and panelboards at this time.

The transfer switch serves both life-safety and non-life-safety loads. This violates the
National Electrical Code. Again, existing installations are not required to comply with
current Code, but it is an item that should be noted. It would not be recommended to
move provide a second transfer switch and additional panelboard for non-life-safety loads
at this time.

All three of these code violates should be addressed if the generator or transfer switch is
replaced in the future.

Fire Alarm

The existing system is deficient in visual notification devices. All public spaces should
have visual notification.

The EMS sleeping rooms do not have smoke detection with visual and audible
notification.


PROJECTION OF EQUIPMENT USEFUL LIFE

Electric Service and Power Distribution

The electrical service and power distribution equipment has at least another 25 years of
useful life. The service does not have the capacity for an addition. The service would be
large enough to handle the addition of an exhaust system in the apparatus bay.
