The Victor Elementary School District is committed to upgrading all District environmental controls equipment with new energy efficient HVAC units and EMS controls to exceed current T-24 Code standards. Consistent with Proposition 39 recommendations, the District HVAC Retrofit project encompasses the “change-out” of existing HVAC equipment to 50 High Efficiency Gas-Electric Roof Mount (15 SEER) units and 58 Wall Pack Electric Heat Pump (15 SEER) units at the District’s first two campuses (Mojave VistaNillage Elementary Schools). The District initially requested the use of Ultra High Efficiency (20 SEER) roof mount units, but at an added $9,400 per unit, the District opted to change to the 15 SEER alternative. The EMS controls were upgraded to “Carrier Open Control” global web-based system by Russell Sigler Controls Group.

About Project

This important project is a result of a long-term need to consolidate District staff into one central location. In 2012, the District was given the opportunity to acquire an existing County facility well below market value. The savings realized allowed the District and Design Team the ability to plan for a complete¬† renovation and interior tenant improvement. The entire interior was “gutted” with only the core building elements (shell, elevator, stairways, and restrooms) remaining to be rehabilitated. A full seismic analysis and retrofit was performed on the existing wood and tilt-up concrete structure to meet current code. All new office interiors were designed to incorporate LEED equivalent strategies such as: LED low voltage lighting systems, low flow fixtures, recycled material usage, high efficiency EMS, and HVAC system retrofit (with commissioning) among others. The existing fire sprinkler and electrical distribution systems were reconfigured and reused in an effort to minimize costs. The exterior was also addressed with the replacement of existing roofing with a high reflectivity single TPO membrane system and thermal enhancements to the building’s envelope. Other site improvements include xeriscape planting, pavement rehabilitation, ADA upgrades, and LED site lighting.
