  7. 7. ROOFSTurkey Hill, Race Brook, and Peck PlaceNEEDS:Ballasted and adhered EPDM rubber installations currently invery poor conditionMembranes exceeded life expectancy  Contain numerous failed patches  Lap seam adhesives dried and splitting  Splitting, exposing reinforcing scrimsPipe penetrations through membranes, not flashedSkylights with failing gasketsFlashings have dried and splitLack of pitch creates ponding of water and plant growth onroofs
  8. 8. CONCERNS:A failing roof at any or all of the schools will cause interiorwater damageOnce water penetrates into the insulation and ceiling tiles,in addition to damages, mold will become a problemClosing a school and reallocating students, due to damageand mold, will be a significant hardship
  9. 9. Work Plan:Combining the roofing projects will achieve more favorablebiddingApproval Spring 2013All architectural designs and drawings must be completed andsubmitted before February 2013Application for ED-042 from the Connecticut StateDepartment, due by February 2013, is in processWork would be completed June – August 2013
  10. 10. Cracked membranes can cause the roofs to fail.
  11. 11. Cracking is significant along structures within the roofs – here, along the heat andair-conditioning unit which services the center core.
  12. 12. Skylights, and other roof structures, require resealing.
  13. 13. Fresh air vents on roof structures need to be replaced withupdated equipment for better air flow in the building.
  14. 14. Example of an older, damaged air vent..
  15. 15. Ponding results from an improper pitch away from the roof drains.
  16. 16. Ponding, due to anincorrect pitch,causes water tocollect away from thedrains.The effect of watersitting in the lowspots is excessivecracking.
  17. 17. Ponding is a consistent problem in many areas of the roofs.
  18. 18. Excessive ponding is quite dramatic after some weather events. Theimproper pitch is preventing the water from reaching this drain.
  19. 19. Again, this excessive ponding is caused by improper pitch.
  20. 20. Ponding on the roofs, while different in each of theschools, leads to the same result -- leaks.
  21. 21. In some areas, ponding onthe roof has actually led tosignificant plant growth.
  22. 22. Water which collects on the roofs freezes,thaws, and refreezes causing cracks.
  23. 23. Ponding is quite significant in some areas. Herethe water has started to freeze.
  24. 24. Effects of freezing and refreezing are excessivecheckering and deterioration.
  25. 25. Checkering, which is widespread on all three roofs,has already begun to cause leaks.
  26. 26. Checkering is widespread on all three of the roofs. Walking on the roofs,such as to remove water or snow, creates further damage.
  27. 27. Here the patio cinder blocks which hold down the membrane need to be removed.While the damage looks different from one roof to the next, the concerns are similar.
  28. 28. The damage on the roofs is widespread, not limited to small areas.
  29. 29. These tiles were removed in an attempt to locate a current leak.
  30. 30. The amount of repair work needed to fix leaks is becoming more and moreextensive with each weather event.
  31. 31. These tiles were removed to repair a leak around the drain.
  32. 32. Note the plant growth, caused by air-borne spores and ideal conditions. These are patches to the membrane. Because the tiles are broken, they will not be replaced.
  33. 33. This is a ‘rolled roof’ andthe pitch is incorrect forthis roof application.
  34. 34. BOILERSTurkey Hill and Race Brook Turkey Hill Race Brook Installed in 1964 Installed in 1959 Original square footage: 46,624 Original square footage: 32,900 Additional 7,500 added in 1989 Additional 12,000 in 1989 Additional 4,000 in 2005 NEED: Oil-fired 12 sections - over 1,000,000 BTU per boiler Burning up to 20 gallons per hour Nipples are failing; boilers need to be split to reach and repair bottom nipples (increasing costs for repair) Concern for mud-drums failing If the mud-drums fail, the boiler becomes unusable due to ‘fatigue’ and age of the boiler
  35. 35. CONCERNS:Currently holding $23,000 in case one of the boiler failsthis winter  $23,000 is the estimated cost for portable heat  Each day without a failure reduces that amountHave been spending $5,400 annually for nipplereplacementEstimated additional $15,200 for remaining top nipplesRepairs to the lower nipples will be twice as expensive asupper nipples; boiler must be split to reach the lowersectionsCost of repair will run about the 1/3 the cost ofreplacementNoisy and very difficult to control temperatures
  36. 36. BENEFITS:New boilers will be high-efficiency dual fuel boilersGas is a cheaper energy source than oilCurrently the gas is ready-and-waiting at each buildingThis work would include uni-vents in the classrooms thatcontrol heat and ability to bring in outside air
  37. 37. What happened when we converted to gas at MLT?Avg. Oil Consumption Rate per year = 23,000 x $2.63 = $60,490 annual cost of oil2011 – 2012 Actual Natural Gas = 23,828 c.c.f. x 8.3 dth = $28,975 Cost Savings = $31,515
  38. 38. BOILERSWORK PLAN:Approval in early Spring 2013Architect and engineer designs by Spring 2013Put out to bid in late Spring 2013Replace boilers over the summer of 2013Convert to gas upon installation
  39. 39. Current original boilers areover 50 years old.
  40. 40. Boilers at TH and RB are old, inefficient, difficult to control,and expensive to repair. The parts are obsolete.
  41. 41. The Johnson air-controlsare old and inefficient.
  42. 42. Current thermostats thatcontrol room temperaturesare old and leak air. Theycannot be repaired becausereplacement parts are nolonger available.
  43. 43. This is classroom univentcontrol valve. It isinefficient in its job ofcontrolling fresh air andheat.
  44. 44. Another inefficient classroom univent.
  45. 45. Boilers have failingnipples and mud-drums.
  46. 46. On the boiler itself, failing uppernipples are repaired as needed.
  47. 47. Failing upper nipples are rusted.
  48. 48. These nipples will alleventually need repair.
  49. 49. Water infiltration isevident around thisfailing nipple.
  50. 50. Lower nipples are twice asexpensive to repair as theupper nipples, due to theirlocation.
  51. 51. To date, about half-a-dozen nipples have beenrepaired as needed.
  52. 52. Repair of 50+-year-oldboilers will cost 1/3 the costof installing a new dual-fuel,energy efficient boiler.
  53. 53. Failure of the mud drums willcause a major boiler failure andrequire portable heat.
  54. 54. Repair of lower drums is becomingmore and more eminent.
  55. 55. These lower mud drums and nipples show serious signs of water seepage.
  56. 56. Gas lines are installed and waiting for our conversion.
  57. 57. These next slides illustrate the modern control features available with a newsystem. Here you see the ‘Main Screen’ for MLT.
  58. 58. Here you see the ‘Main Screen’ for Peck Place, which has been converted to gas.
  59. 59. This is a boiler operation screen, which controls boilers, water circulation, and heat.
  60. 60. This is a boiler operation screen ‘floor plan,’ which reports current roomtemperatures to maximize fuel cost savings.
  61. 61. This is the roof-top unit control screen, which shows the current temperatures.
  62. 62. Current thermostats in MLT andPeck classrooms, where wehave already converted to gas.
  63. 63. DOORS and WINDOWSTurkey Hill, Race Brook, and Peck PlaceNEEDS:Windows in some buildings do not close properly due tomechanism fatigue.Glass is not e-rated for energy savings.Glazing is old and dried-up; some of the glass is cloudy frommoisture.Panic-bars on the doors are old; some are mis-positioned.Doors are not energy efficient; some are rusting and/or rotting.Door jams are inoperable; some hinges are failing or sagging.
  64. 64. DOORS and WINDOWSWORK PLAN:Approval in early Spring 2013Due to three roofs and boilers being completed in Summer2013 (asbestos removal requires buildings be closed andsealed for a period of time)Put out to bid in Spring 2014By the end of the summer of 2014, complete the doors andwindows replacements
  65. 65. Some door thresh-holds are failing..
  66. 66. Some doors are either rotting or rusting.
  67. 67. Old steel doorsare not energyefficient.
  68. 68. Rusted door.
  69. 69. This door was damaged by vandalism.
  70. 70. This door shows rust and mismatched handles because the original parts are nolonger available.
  71. 71. An air gap at the thresh-holdwastes energy. This is acommon problem throughoutthe district.
  72. 72. This door was sprung atthe hinges, creating theneed for an after-markethinge.
  73. 73. Rusted doors are common.
  74. 74. Panic bars on these exit doorsdo not match because oldparts were no longer available.
  75. 75. Another old versusnew handle whichcreates a ‘mismatch’when entering andexiting.
  76. 76. Deteriorating door.
  77. 77. Interior door hinges are failing.
  78. 78. Frames of windows and doors are deteriorating,causing air gaps and moisture.
  79. 79. There have been numerous attempts to sealold, single-pane windows.
  80. 80. Another example of caulking and re-caulkingsingle-pane windows
  81. 81. Metal separation has caused water infiltration.
  82. 82. Worn mechanisms make windowsdifficult to operate.
  83. 83. Worn window mechanisms meanthe windows in some classroomscan’t be opened by the classroom teacher.
  84. 84. PARKING LOTPeck Place SchoolNEEDS:Parking lot was installed in 1968Spent $1,700 in November 2011 to patch holes in frontand side of Parking LotPatches are inadequateNot enough spaces for day-to-day parking or eventparkingUnsafe vehicle traffic flowCurbside drop-off and pick-up creates pedestrianpatterns
  85. 85. Peck Place Parking LotWork Plan:A much-needed sidewalk repair was completed Summer2012Parking Lot Approval in Spring 2013Hire an architect to redesign the traffic pattern andscope additional parking spacesPlan would go before proper town agencies for approvalParking lot installation to follow roof repair and boilerinstallations
  86. 86. Peck Place SchoolHoles are typical of ayearly spring thaw.
  87. 87. Holes have required patches for safety reasons.
  88. 88. Current exit and entrances at Peck needsafety improvements. A bus turning right and a carturning left cross paths.
  89. 89. General deterioration.Student drop-off has no cleartraffic pattern.
  90. 90. Even the patching creates a safety issue withuneven surfaces.
  91. 91. Even the patching creates asafety issue with unevensurfaces.
  92. 92. The plan will also address the unsafe flow of traffic in which buses turning rightcross over cars turning left.
  93. 93. The plan will also address the shortage of parking.
  94. 94. The parking lot plan needs to takewetlands into consideration.
  95. 95. Parking lot drainage will need to be improved.
  96. 96. FASCIA REPAIRPainting, scraping, and repairMary L. TracyAll of the surrounding trim needs to be power-washedand scrapedRotting wood must be replacedTrim needs to be paintedMinor masonry repairs
  97. 97. The front entrance is shown here.
  98. 98. The courtyard is showing its wear.
  99. 99. The exterior trim work on the historic Mary L.Tracy building is in need of repair andpainting.
  100. 100. The extent of repairs to the wood trim is unknown until the work begins.
  101. 101. The fascia around theentire building is inequal need ofattention.
  102. 102. Decorative trim needs scraping and paint.
  103. 103. Some masonry work is also needed
