Basement 2 Garbage Room Ventilation
Existing ductwork serving both bin room and stair well pressurization system in fire mode. The
ductwork in this area shall be raised hard against the slab to provide room for new mezzanine level.
The portion of the ductwork serving stair pressurization to level below shall remain and reuse.

Contractor to provide extension to connect new portion of the ductwork to the existing dropper
serving the level below.

Ventilation to the Machinery store room & Chemical and supply Storage
New Exhaust ductwork serving new storage areas shall be connected to the existing exhaust system,
contractor to measure the airflow before and after construction and ensure the existing airflow is
maintained.

Performance Guarantees
All components will have adequate size, capacity and performance to provide the specified
design internal conditions when operating under specified design outside ambient conditions and
specified design internal loads.
Control systems and air distribution components will be set up and balanced that the temperature
in an area is maintained within the specified limits.
Fans will deliver the specified design flow rate at the actual installed system resistance. Noise levels
that exceed the recommended maximum shall be reduced. Alterations necessary will be made at
no cost under the Contract.
