fence, but the distance should be verified with USAR Installation personnel.
3-2.5.3 Vehicle gates may be swinging or rolling, based on Tenant preference, but
rolling gates must maintain the maximum height above ground. It may be necessary to
incorporate a "speed bump" at the gate in order to ensure the bottom of the gate does
not exceed the maximum height above the paving. Powered gates are not normally
Fences must be electrically grounded.
3-2.6.1 Wash bays for military equipment may be authorized in the project
documents, or requested by the Tenants for ACSIM-AR approval.
3-2.6.2 In northern locations, wash bays will normally be located within an OMS,
AMSA, or DS/GS building. No additional bays will be authorized due to cost, so one or
more bays must be able to be separated from the others with retractable curtains.
Provide wet service electrical systems in such bays.
3-2.6.3 In warmer climates, wash bays will normally be exterior to the maintenance
building. In such cases, the designer must address collection/treatment of gray water
and prevention of stormwater entry to sanitary sewers. A roofed structure or control
valve system should be considered per local EPA criteria.
3-2.6.4 A concrete pad will be provided at exterior wash bays, and containment curbs
or depression of the slab should be provided to control gray water. All electrical systems
should be designed for wet service.
3-2.6.5 The designer should verify whether any package pressure or heating wash
system will be Tenant-supplied or a part of the construction contract. If such a system is
portable, it will be necessary to provide sufficient storage space to accommodate it in
the maintenance shop. The designer will verify that sufficient power is provided for such
3-2.6.6 Consideration should be given to recycling of gray water, possibly with a
package system. Cost, sustainable design goals, and water availability will be factors in
the consideration. If provided, a heated building for the equipment will be provided
where climate requires.
3-2.7.1 Loading ramps for military equipment may be authorized in the project
documents, or requested by the Tenants for ACSIM-AR approval. If so, COE has a
standard design for a bi-level loading ramp that designers may wish to obtain.
Loading ramps should be adjacent to or within an MEP. Sufficient
