“Emergency replacement of an existing chiller for the Seth Hammett Gymnasium on the Andalusia Campus of LBWCC with a new Carrier 50-ton Chiller in the amount of $63,016.00 was authorized on September 27, 2017, to proceed without public advertisement, under the provision of Alabama Code §41-16-53. This includes removal and disposal of the existing chiller and installing the new chiller along with necessary insulated chilled water piping connections to existing piping, mounting chiller with new vibration isolators, electrical power tie-in, control low voltage connection, and start-up.
This was designated an emergency need due to the number of classes and activities held in the Seth Hammett Gymnasium that involve LBWCC students, employees, and the community. Alternative locations for these classes and activities were not available. A delay in accomplishing this work would be a danger to the safety, health, and/or convenience of the students and employees who would be required to carry on with classes and activities in un-air-conditioned spaces. EMS classes and EMS labs are held in this building in addition to sporting events and athletic courses. The LBWCC Fitness Center and offices for coaches are also located in the gymnasium.”
