RSF Animal Facility Manu Sharma, PE Facilities Management
Research Support Facility (RSF) (AKA Building 30 or LAR) KUMC’s largest animal building. Original building with two floors built in 1987. Two other floors added in 2003. Both parts built with separate mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems fed from the same sources. No interconnection between the two. Lower level MEP systems are nearly 25 years old and some are in need of replacement.
Understanding the HVAC for RSF HVAC- Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning AHU- Air Handling Unit
Understanding the HVAC for RSF Air Terminal- Controls the room temperature by adding heat, meters the air flow to help maintain room pressure
M E P System Study KUMC hired Engineering consultant Brack & Assoc. in October 2011 to – Review the condition of Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) systems and assess their reliability – Recommend required replacements – Recommend upgrades to have redundancy of MEP systems, i.e. two separate water supply sources to the building.
Study Findings Lower Level MEP systems are nearing the end of life and need to be replaced, especially the air handling unit (AHU) serving the lower levels (AHU-1) Lower level air terminals need to be replaced with new digital controls for better performance and monitoring. Exhaust systems are not fully redundant. Lack of redundancy if steam or chilled water from power plant is lost. Heating water and domestic hot water systems on lower level need to be replaced and connected to upper level for redundancy
Study Findings (continued) Emergency power generators and electrical switchboards need replacement Lack of redundant transformer
Our Plan Based on the Study Recommendations Phased plan – funding limitations Only Phase 1 and 2 have firm funding commitments, with some of the funds for phase 2 coming from NIH grant (outcome not known) Phase 1 (Estimated Construction time Early June to December 2013) -Install ductwork and controls to interconnect AHU-1, AHU-2 and proposed AHU-3. Phase 2 (Estimated Construction time February 2014-November 2014) – Install AHU-3 – Replace AHU-1 – Replace Air Terminals on Ground and First Floor with new controls – Extend south stair to roof level – Install a new water line for RSF, providing a redundant source of water.
Our Plan Based on the Study Recommendations (continued) Phase 3 New Emergency Generator New electrical switchgears for normal and emergency power Phase 4 New Boiler and Chiller for redundancy New redundant heating system serving all parts of the bldg New redundant domestic hot water system serving all parts of the bldg New redundant exhaust fans for the whole bldg New redundant transformer New Edstrom system for Grd & first floors New Elevators Phase 5 Build out penthouse for storage space Build a barrier suite on second floor
Time Line for Phase 1 Work Complete Design and Bid Documents for interconnecting ductwork – From Now - End of March 2013 Bid the project – Between April – End of May 2013 Construction – Between June – December 2013
Impact of Construction in Phase 1 Several Air supply shut downs to make modifications to ductwork. Targeted to not last more than 4 hours at a time. All shut downs shall be scheduled with RSF management. Will create temporary work spaces with partitions on ground and first floor. Dust and construction traffic shall be controlled. Expect periodic noise and vibration in areas below, when ducts and pipes are cut or attached to structure
Areas That May Experience Construction Noise/Vibration- Ground Floor
Areas That May Experience Construction Noise/Vibration- First Floor
Areas That May Experience Construction Noise/Vibration- Second Floor
Areas That May Experience Construction Noise/Vibration- Third Floor

CRITICAL Animal Life Safety LAR Emergency Preparedness Plan If a disaster occurs within the animal facility, such as fire, excess heat, or chemical spill, and the animal facility becomes a harmful environment, then animals shall be moved to a safe location to the extent possible. Reasonable and valid attempts will be made to recover animals by the best means possible. If personnel have limited time to move or otherwise take care of animals, then the animals shall be helped in with the following priority: -Attempts will be made to save all the USDA regulated species -Critical/irreplaceable to the study animals participating in grant-funded research (bar code cage card marked with a red dot). PIs should mark only a few mice breeding pairs per line that cannot be replaced -Non-critical animals If animals cannot be successfully evacuated, they will be humanely euthanized. Mark cages with red dots by April 1 st.
Upcoming Changes ‘Chemical Hazards SOP’ Chemicals that are toxic, known or suspect carcinogens, reproductive hazards, teratogens, mutagens and antineoplastic agents may be used in animal protocols. All chemicals being used must be documented in an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee approved protocol. Two separate SOPs: PROG 28 is Biological Hazards and PROG 48 is Chemical Hazards Two procedure rooms will be equipped with Class II Type B hoods Training will be provided to researchers on as needed basis. LOCATIONS: RSF procedure room G033 (234 sq. ft.) with dedicated animal room G040 (111 sq. ft.) RSF procedure room 3011 (145 sq. ft.) with dedicated animal room 3016 (225 sq. ft.)

LAR started FY2013 with 4 external customers. As of the end of December we are down to 3. Over the last year, LAR has self funded around 54% of operations and received no outside funding for capital equipment replacement. Major maintenance repairs are addressed by KUMC facilities, but LAR must fund any outside contractor or equipment purchases required. We continue to see a slow steady decrease in animal numbers.

Information Needed For Study Budget Estimate LAR will not prepare a budget estimate if PI presents only study design described in the ACUP. PI should prepare detailed study flow chart/plan. Supplies Animals Labor Housing Equipment Price list of PPE, drugs, and expendables is posted on LAR website Note: For example, the budget estimate for study is about ~42,000. This is the best approximation of the costs involved for LAR to support the study. Studies usually do not go as planned and contingencies should be built into study budget. If investigator decides to change the original study design, the study budget estimate should not be relied upon when submitting to funding agency.
LAR Budget Estimate Agreement for Biotechnical Services I __________________________________(PI name) have read the budget estimate provided by LAR for the animal study slated to begin approximately (date) __________________ and end approximately (date)________________under ACUP#_____________. I understand that this is the best approximation of the costs needed for LAR to support my study. While the fixed prices for labor (technical service rates) and supplies (supply price list) and animal housing (per diem rate) have been provided, I also understand that the costs may differ (actual cost may be higher or lower than initial estimate) based on and not limited to the actual time needed to complete various services provided by LAR and the actual number of supplies needed for the procedures. Additionally, if animals suffer post-operative complications, there will be additional costs associated with the labor and supplies needed to perform treatments and observation to address those complications. If on-going or intense technical support is needed, it may be more cost-effective to hire a dedicated technical support person for my laboratory. I have also discussed details related to animal caging needed for this study, and I am satisfied with the caging supplied by LAR for this particular study. Provisions of LAR Biotechnical Services: Biotechnical services are provided by LAR on an ‘as available’ basis without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied (For example, if an LAR employee, who provides technical support for the study, gets sick or resigns, there may be resulting delays for the study. However, LAR and the lab may work together to procure replacements for such staffing positions). LAR will not issue credits for lab animals that are not suitable for study. LAR will make every effort to ensure animals are healthy prior to shipment into LAR facilities. Furthermore, if animals are deemed unhealthy or unsuitable upon arrival, with input from the lab, LAR may seek animal replacements from the animal vendor. However, no such replacements are guaranteed Also, LAR will not issue credits for services (i.e. per diem accrual) due to decisions made by the lab. (For example, if a lab chooses to delay procedure in order to work with a specific LAR staff member when an adequate alternative staff member is available, LAR will not be responsible for the additional per diems associated with the study delay). If the PI is dissatisfied with LAR technical service or any terms, guidelines, or practices, the sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the services. If the investigator decides to change the original study design, this budget estimate is automatically invalid and should not be used for submission to funding agency. ___________________________________________________ Signature of PI/InvestigatorDate
