Cooling System Replacement
Town of Turner – Leavitt Institute Building
The Town of Turner is seeking proposals for the replacement of two cooling units at the Leavitt Institute Building, 98 Matthews Way, Turner. The building is presently cooled by four central air conditioning compressors that tie into zoned air handling units. The air handlers also distribute heat from an oil-fired, hot water heating system. Two of the four central air conditioning units have now failed, and the other two are operational but of similar vintage.
The immediate need is to replace the two non-functioning compressors but, before doing so, the town would like to ensure that the replacement units will ultimately function well as part of a longer-term mechanical system upgrade plan for the building.
The successful proposal will address the current cooling needs for the building, including a fixed cost to accomplish, and demonstrate how the equipment proposed will integrate into an upgrade plan that can be completed in stages.
To facilitate this process, a pre-proposal meeting for interested mechanical contractors, including a tour of the building and review of the existing systems, will be held at the Leavitt Institute Building Community Room at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 5. Proposals shall be submitted no later than 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 19. Proposals will be evaluated by the Leavitt Institute Building Board of Directors, and a final course of action, including cost, will be recommended to the Turner Board of Selectmen. It is anticipated the cooling system work will be accomplished during April/May of 2020.
Please email Kurt Schaub, Turner Town Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org), to advise if you will be attending the pre-proposal meeting.
