Schertz City Council on Oct. 12 approved an adjustment to the fiscal year 2021-22 budget to provide funding for an agreement with M&S Engineering for services on the Civic Center HVAC Replacement Project.

Assistant Director of Public Works Scott McClelland gave a presentation breaking down the project and the proposed expenses.

“The Civic Center has had some issues recently with the HVAC System,” McClelland said. “The facility was originally built about 15 years ago. To help with diagnosing some of the issues, we had M&S Engineering, who is one of our on-call engineering firms, do an assessment of what they suggested that we do.”

Per the suggestion, the proposed plan for the project is to remove the existing split system, select ductwork and install a new packaged unit with variable air volume, or VAV, units outside and VAV terminal units inside.

The estimated cost is around $910,000, with $85,000 going to M&S Engineering for the design and $825,000 allotted to construction costs. Funding for the project will come from hotel occupancy tax funds, which had a balance of $2,246,341.96 as of the end of September.



McClelland hopes the construction will begin around the start of 2022.
