The contractor shall replace existing plumbing and drainage systems within the wet cell areas, replace subfloor and flooring systems, provide surface preparation and paint or other architectural finish necessary to restore the interior floor space. The contractor shall reuse existing water closets, sinks, and shower receptors to the maximum extent feasible. Exterior work incorporates limited repair of roofing systems, and seal the roofs. All roof drain lines shall be cleared of debris and new roof drain lines shall be installed on the low side of the upper level water tank holding area. Replace water tanks with equivalent capacity on roof tops. Configure water tank placement such that loads produced from the elevated water storage are appropriately conveyed to the structural elements of the facility.

Construction/renovation shall consist of the following activities: Completely remove all debris, rubble, and trash in each building.

Completely remove all damaged floor tiles, window casements, doorframes, mechanical ductwork, straps, hangers, inserts, electrical boxes, and devices within affected areas of work.

Remove all loose materials and patch to match existing building surface. Clean and repair all tarred joints in the roofing slabs. Reseal all joints and make watertight. Test water rightness of roofing and wall openings. Enclose or fill in all existing openings in the walls, floors and ceilings with structurally stable material. All openings in the roof structure and exterior wall shall be made watertight. Within the wet cell areas, remove and replace all damaged interior doors. Remove and replace all damaged exterior doors with insulated steel doors and frames. All necessary hardware, including locks, will be included for all doors.

Electrical: Renovate the existing and/or install a new and complete building electrical power and lighting system to include all wiring, panels, breakers, switches, outlets, junction boxes, connectors, conduit, and fixtures. Provide outlets spaced and in conformance with criteria for placement within a wet area.

All lighting in bathrooms and other wet locations shall be mounted in waterproof fixtures.

Complete the interior and exterior electrical system with commercial/institutional grade wiring and fixtures using International Electric Code. This is to include tracing any existing electrical wires and/or providing new wiring; and installation of all switches, lights with covers, ceiling fans, air-conditioning w/electric heaters, electrical outlets, breakers, main panels and a main distribution panel for the generator as required for a complete functioning system.

This completed system will be connected into the installation’s generated electrical power distribution system.

Sanitary Works: Install a new and complete building sanitary sewer system to include all piping, fittings, hangers, straps, flanges, traps, drains, vents, and fixtures.   Pipe shall be installed from rooftop holding tanks to the facility to allow removal of waste product.

Install a new and complete building water supply system to include all piping, fittings, hangers, straps, valves, faucets, and fixtures. Domestic cold and hot water shall be provided in the facilities to serve the water usage and plumbing fixtures provided for the facility. Water service to each facility shall enter the building from a storage or similar type space. Isolation valves shall be installed at each facility and to separate latrine/shower area. All Water Service to each facility will be underground at a minimum coverage of 0.75 meters. All water piping shall be routed parallel to the building lines. Insulation shall be provided where required to control sweating of pipes. Domestic water shall be distributed by means of schedule 40 galvanized steel pipe. Note: the contractor shall provide galvanized steel Schedule 40 plumbing for sinks, showers, and toilets. All building water lines shall be surface mounted. The hot water shall be generated by electric water heaters. The storage unit shall be typically located inside a mechanical room, storage room, /janitor room or similar type space. The unit shall be of the commercially available tank type having low or medium watt density electric heating elements.

Replace roof top water storage with non-metal containers. Domestic cold and hot water shall be provided in the facilities to serve the water usage and plumbing fixtures provided for the facility. Water service to each facility shall enter the building in a mechanical, toilet, storage, or similar type space. All water piping shall be routed parallel to the building lines and surface mounted in all areas. Insulation shall be provided where required to control sweating of pipes.

All fans used for ventilation and pressurization shall be selected for required performance and for minimum noise level. Unit mounted supply and exhaust fans shall be centrifugal forward curved, backward inclined, or airfoil fans with non-overloading characteristics of high efficiency and quiet running plan. The fans shall be heavy-duty type with durable construction and proven performance in arid and dusty desert environment. Each exhaust fan shall be provided with gravity dampers and shall be complete with vibration isolators, external lubricators, accessories and controls necessary for specified sequence of operation.

Install ceiling fans in all rooms, with vibration mounts or hook-type suspension.

To reduce sand and dirt migration, outside air intakes shall be located as high as possible within architectural constraints. The intakes shall be sized so that free air velocities are below 2.5 m/s (500 fpm).
