Furthermore, design included retrofitting of chandeliers, addition of lighting controls, power for new HVAC equipment and organ and the additional of smoke and heat detection in attic and bell tower.
The crawl space provisions for natural ventilation was limited and raised concern that a shortfall of natural ventilation would promote higher than expected moisture and termite damage. There was also concern that inadequate attic ventilation has been responsible of structural damage and may have been responsible for ceiling damage involving failed ceiling plaster and paint. Proposed improvements included vapor barriers and increasing ventilation openings to reduce high moisture conditions in spaces and provide an in-line fan in the overhead of the basement mechanical room. A complete survey of the existing mechanical equipment, including the existing
boiler, chiller, cooling tower, and piping systems was completed. Recommendations were made on the operating condition and expected service life of the equipment and systems and on the need for or economic justification for the replacement of equipment or systems.
Design included replacing the existing electrical distribution system encompassing the service equipment, panelboard feeders, panelboards and accessible branch circuits (including knob and tube wiring in the attic) for the church and bell tower. It also involved power for the new HVAC equipment and organ, retrofitting and re-installing the chandeliers, including replacing fixture wiring. Lighting controls were added at the sacristy and the baptismal font. Additional lighting and controls as well as smoke and/or heat detection was provided in the attic and bell tower.
