where utilities are closer. This may occur on sites containing in-place utilities that cannot
be feasibly relocated.
3-188.8.131.52 Utility companies should be contacted for special requirements for utility
separation beyond typical design values.
Driveway and Parking Layouts
3-184.108.40.206 POV parking should be arranged to minimize pedestrian traffic through rows
of parked cars. The authorized area for POV parking is normally calculated to provide
spaces for a maximum of 80% of Tenants on the largest drill weekend at an allowance
of 3 SY (29.3 sq m) per space. Layouts must be efficient to provide the desired number
of parking spaces, and 90 degree parking is preferred to 45 or 60 degree parking,
unless site restraints dictate angled parking.
3-220.127.116.11 MEP parking may be more efficiently accommodated with a 45 or 60 degree
angled parking layout due to the size of some vehicles, and the variations in sizes
among the vehicles. Designer should review parking layouts with Tenants to optimize
parking and maneuvering. The MEP area is based on an authorization of 50 sy
(41.8 sq m) per vehicle, and generally is provided for 60% of the unit vehicles, or 10% of
the vehicles supported by an AMSA. Therefore, the authorized MEP area will not
typically accommodate all of the Tenants vehicles, and some will be stored at an ECS.
3-18.104.22.168 At vehicle access driveways to kitchen, unit storage, mechanical, workbays,
and similar spaces, AT/FP requirements dictate that a removable physical barrier be
provided. This can be accomplished with gates, removable bollards, large chains
between bollards, or similar devices. All such barriers must include locking provisions.
Review with Tenants, USAR Installation and Provost Marshal.
3-2.5.1 Chainlink or other security fencing is always provided around the MEP area,
and may be approved by the Using Service for other areas. If the budget allows,
consider fencing to match the surrounding architectural character. Also consider fencing
attractive nuisances such as ponding areas that will hold stormwater for appreciable
lengths of time; such fencing does not necessarily have to meet physical security
requirements for security fencing. Most Tenants prefer that fences are located in a strip
of rock mulch or similar surfacing to avoid the need to maintain grass or plantings along
the fence line.
3-2.5.2 The standard chainlink security fence is a minimum of 7 ft (2140 mm in
height, with 6 ft (1830 mm) of fence and three strands of barbed wire totaling 1 ft
(310 mm) above, sloped outboard. Fences of other materials providing similar security
may be considered, but should be reviewed with USAR Installation security personnel to
verify they meet physical security criteria. The maximum allowable distance from hard
ground to bottom of fence is 2 in (50 mm). A "clear" area along both sides of the fence is
typically required; this area generally extends for 10 feet (3 meters) on each side of the
