Subject: CATS IT /Machine Room UPS/Generator Addtion Project
X-UCSC-CATS-MailScanner: Found to be clean


This is e-mail is the preliminary estimate of probable project cost.

Joe Collonge, Principal of Prime Design, Inc., is asked to be the lead consultant.  His three subconsultants will be :   Axiom Engineers - mechanical, Mesiti-Miller Engineering - structural,  and Craig Bagley  - architectural.

Our meetings and e-mail correspondence have defined the general project scope.   The major scope elements for a UPS, generator, and stand- alone air conditioning for the CATS IT/Machine room are:

* 120 kva UPS with  batteries for 5 minutes
*  300 kw natural gas generator with critical muffler
*  150 kva transformer k-13
*  480 volt panel (generator loads)
*  600 amp 4 pole transfer switch
*  208 volt panel (distribution to IT room)
*  Motor control
*  Wire feeders and conduit
*  Automatic fire alarm additions and programming
*  Utility trenches

*  Roof mounted dry cooler.  Automatic change over to campus condensing tower water .
*  Isolation valves for cooling water to existing Contempo a.c. units
*  Water source heat pump for UPS room
*  Return air duct down-sizing in paper room.
*  Gas piping to generator from roadway. Meter, filter, and regulator for generator.
*  Control specification for Honeywell system to monitor dry cooler, pumps, control valves, UPS, and emergency generator.

Additional scope, if requested, for  specification for replacement of 5 Contempo a.c. unis .

*   Removal of UPS room /IT room door .  Fire- rated partition and door between UPS room and "Paper room".
*  Fence around generator to screen generator from Communication Building view.
*  Door access to roof from mezzanine elevator lobby.

Site Structural
*  Generator pad (at service road level), supportive retaining wall .
*   UPS floor and seismic anchors
*  Review roof structure for dry cooler location, design roof support for dry cooler.
