The facility is over 30+ years old, 4,612 ft, 3-story structure, with no energy efficient renovations to date. Therefore, the structure is well below standards in many areas including insulation, window, roofs, doors, and freezing water pipes. Other items that are failinf is the wiring, both electical and telecommunication (telephone and computers). To better serve our community BFC has done without upgrades to provide more funding for patient needs in practitioners, staffing, or monthly expenses. During the winter, tempatures at the facility are hard to reach 60 degrees, with water pipes freezing, and during the summer keeping cool below 80 degrees. All of these deficiencies cost the facility monthly over $2,500 in heating fuel ($5.735 per gal.) and $1,500 in electrical besideds other regular expenses, also there is loss of revenue due to warter pipers being frozen. This project will impact the total sq. footage in additions to adding 11,875 sq. ft of parking.
