e. Reproduction and Printing
(1) General. All printing must be clear and easily read. Particular care must be exercised
so that reducing the sketch drawings does not render the printing unreadable. The sketch
drawings, narrative report and parametric estimate will be reproducible by photocopying.
(2) Sheet Sizes. Copying machine-sized sheets, 215 mm x 280 mm (8 " x 11") and/or
280 mm x 430 mm (11" x 17") for sketch drawings will be used to the maximum extent possible.
(3) Photocopying. The use of photocopying machines is extremely beneficial and is one of
the keys to the simplification of the Code 3 design release process.
(a) Existing drawings for location plans, site plans, and building floor plans from
standard designs should be photo-reduced and used, provided they are legible when reproduced.
Exterior elevations and cross-sections from standard designs should also be used when applicable
to the requirements of the project.
(b) An alterative to the copy machine is the use of a graphic scanner and Computer
Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) system. Scanned existing drawings for location plans, site
plans and building floor plans from standard designs can be modified and vectorized, if need be,
on the CADD and prepared for final presentation. The quality of the final drawings will often
depend on the quality of the drawings being scanned.
f. Submittals. The report documentations for projects developed by Code 3 design directives
will be submitted by the design agency, to the installation for review and approval. An electronic
ENG Form 3086 based on the parametric estimate will be submitted to HQUSACE, ATTN:
CEMP-EE, not later than 1 July of the Design Year.
