INTRODUCTION. This section provides design criteria
for facilities which may be required to support fueling
activities. Specifically, operations buildings, contaminated
fuel recovery systems, roads, utilities, and aircraft refueler
parking areas are detailed in this section.
OPERATIONS BUILDING. Review the fueling activity to
establish a need for each component of this building. Factors
which will affect these reviews are number of people required
for fueling activity, level of activity, types of fuels
handled, on-site quality control, availability of replacement
parts, availability of maintenance support, and level of
Design Standards. The building design criteria will
be the building code in effect at the facility. Automatic
sprinkler protection in accordance with MIL-HDBK-1008 is
required regardless of building code requirement if a water
supply is available.
Fuel Office. Provide a fuel office with sufficient
space to perform the necessary planning, administrative, and
management functions associated with the accomplishment of the
fuel division's mission. Refer to AFH 32-1084 for size on Air
Training/Conference Room. Provide a multipurpose
room with equipment for training, conferences, and briefings.
Design this room to accommodate furniture and have built-in
features such as markerboard, tack board, book shelves,
screen, clock, coat hooks, and storage cabinets.
Fuel Workshop. Equip the fuel workshop with an
and electrical outlets available. Provide slip and fuel-
resistant floor, emergency shower/eye wash, and adequate
storage space adjacent to the workbench for frequently used
tools, spare hardware items and accessories. If facility is
large enough and mission warrants, consider overhead crane,
laundry facility, and shower facility. Refer to Section 2 of
this handbook for electrical hazard classification and
requirements and NFPA for ventilation requirements.
