Zero use of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-based refrigerants in new base building heating, ventilating, air conditioning and
refrigeration (HVAC&R) systems and zero use of halons in fire suppression equipment. When reusing existing base building
HVAC equipment, complete a comprehensive CFC phase-out conversion prior to project completion. Phase-out plans extending
beyond the project completion date will be considered on their merits
