2019 October 2 MOD Committee meeting minutes
- Secretary - Rustin Atkeisson
- Patrick Hutchison
- James Lancaster
- Paula Pankratz
- John Nicholas
- JaiPal Chauhan
- Need to approach modifications with the intent of doing them the right way. This is our new home, and it will most likely be that way for a long time to come.
- As Projects progress, we need to make sure we are capturing photos not just of the projects, but also of the people knocking out the projects.
- Members need to be careful about modifying the building without coordinating with the MOD committee first
- Building is considered 5A: Non-Fire Sprinkler System Required Building
- Should be able to provide itemized estimate in a week
- Would like to bring out an electrical inspector to get their input on the wiring
- Would also need a journeyman around while doing the major electrical work
- Building currently wired with a 3 phase 400amp main panel, and several sub panels
- This would make it easier to run a ‘trunk’ line out to the west end of the building for a sub panel with enough juice to handle the wood shop and metal shop
- wiring running to additional sub-panels should be underground to improve how much amperage the wires can handle
- currently have 5 sub panels
- Panel D is 100amp and in the South hall
- Panel C is also 100 amps and in the West hall
- Panels A, B, and the Univent panels are in the boiler room
- Emergency Panel is also located in the boiler room. Typically, Emergency Panels are used with an emergency generator, so anything powered by the generator is controlled here. Without a generator, it centralizes circuits that provide power for Emergency Lighting, Exit Signage, Security Functions and alarm systems. Note: There is not a generator on premises.
- Should be able to provide itemized estimate in two weeks
- Need to look into current health of current HVAC systems at Booth
- current heaters in rooms do not work
- may have to consider using special dampers if individual A/C units are used to cool more than one room
- Still plan to have HVAC in the entire building
- Might want to consider how adding solar panels in the future would impact the HVAC system (might have to go with mini-splits or heat pumps to take care of HVAC)
Bad Stuff Remediation/Safety
- Need to consider fresh air provisions for most of the rooms
- Most of the rooms have ventilation, but we would need to add fans to draw air out of rooms
- Should contact KDHE about potential asbestos tile and adhesives
- Would prefer to have bare concrete floors in the wood shops/metal shops if remediating the asbestos isn’t a huge concern
- There is a hydronic heating in the floors of room 1 and 2 that could contain asbestos, so we would have to be careful about drilling through the floor
- Need to have tile samples sent off for testing
- It is not impossible to remediate Asbestos tile since the tile is considered non-frizzing form
- Need to find out how much dirt is needed to improve the drainage round the building.
- Metal shop would prefer 2 separate rooms (a clean room, and a not so clean room)
- Wood Shop would prefer a doorway between rooms so that people can be observed in the adjacent room (improved safety of the space)
- Could put up to a 42in wide door between rooms to retain fire rating of building
- Need to find out if there is a maximum size for doors leading to the hallway, but it sounds like it is cheaper to put an extra door in the hallway than it is to put in a door between rooms
- The building has fairly good fluorescent lighting throughout but we should look into sources for replacing all the fluorescent lights with LEDs.
- number of bathroom stalls needed may end up being determined by the certificate of occupancy.
- any bathroom added would need to be heated
- Ceramics studio
- Would like at least 4 220v outlets
- could potentially add a sink along wall common to boiler room
- or potentially add 3 gallon instant hot water heater in chase in the west hall bathrooms
