major piece of equipment on which space allocation was determined shall be
indicated in the analysis. Equipment of at least three manufacturers shall
be capable of being installed, serviced, maintained, and replaced in the
Specifications. The design criteria in this chapter shall conform
to the requirements of NAVFAC Type Specifications TS-16301, Underground
Electrical Work (see Reference (7)); TS-16302, Overhead Electrical Work (see
Reference (8)); TS-16335 Transformers, Substations, and Switchgear, Exterior
(see Reference (9)); TS-16402, Interior Wiring Systems (see Reference (10));
TS-16462, Pad Mounted Transformers (see Reference (11)); TS-16465, Interior
Substations (see Reference (12)); and TS-16475, Transformers, Substations,
and Switchgear, Interior (see Reference (13)).
Requirements for Physically Handicapped. For pertinent
information on making buildings and facilities accessible to, and usable by,
physically handicapped personnel, see ANSI A-117.1, Making Buildings and
Facilities Accessible to, and Usable by, the Physically Handicapped (see
Architectural Considerations. Exterior and interior exposed
electrical items shall be shown or indicated as such, and their use shall be
coordinated with the architectural design. For electronic facilities,
criteria in DM-12 (Reference (3)) shall apply.
OSHA Requirements. Provide all safety features in accordance with
the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).
Women in the Navy.
The design shall provide for the increasing
number of women in the Navy.
ELECTRIC POWER SUPPLY. In electric power source selection, use the same
criteria employed in NAVFAC DM-4 and NAVFAC DM-12 (see References (1) and
(3)). Research hyperbaric facilities chambers require primary, standby, and
emergency power sources. Recompression chambers require primary and standby
Primary. The primary power source must provide sufficient power
for peak demands during normal operations.
The standby power source must provide sufficient power
carry the minimum essential operating electric load required for absolutely
essential operations during the mission that must continue during extended
loss of primary power.
Emergency. The emergency power source must provide sufficient
power for vital operations whose electric power interruption can be tolerated
only for relatively short durations.
