REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  Ohio University respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to release capital appropriation in the amount of $193,875.00 from Fund 7034, ALI C30157 (Building & Safety Systems Impr), in FY18, for the Campus Heat Exchanger Replacement project in Athens, Athens County.  
  Ohio University has multiple leaking heat exchangers across the main campus that are returning contaminated condensate to the Lausche Heating Plant. The new permanent boilers in Lausche, a $17.5M investment, will be at risk of damage from the contaminated condensate that is returned from the leaking exchangers. The scope of work for this project will be to identify and replace the leaking heat exchangers across campus.

A consultant and/or Architect/Engineer was not needed on this project as the heat exchangers to be replaced will be identified by Ohio University Facilities staff members.

The appropriation requested for release at this time are for the construction phase, contingency, and related fees of the project. The selection of Geiger Brothers, Inc., of Jackson, OH, for construction services, was completed in accordance with the sections of ORC 153 regulating public improvements to state facilities. As the anticipated costs for the construction services were well below the threshold as outlined in the revised code, the University approached the contractor for a proposal of services for the work to be performed. A copy of the contractors proposal for services is included in the attachments to this request. Ohio University recommends award of contract to Geiger Brothers, Inc.

Ohio University is requesting slightly more than the recommended 10% construction contingency due to the unforeseen circumstances that may arise while completing the type of work described in this project.
