distribution, are to be considered only for larger or more complex
facilities. Use of the IBS Systems Module design concepts must be
approved by TMA-DMFO.
1.8.7 Future Expansion. Incorporate considerations for future expansion
into all designs. Consider both external and internal expansion of vital
functions such as ancillary and utility services. Building siting,
vehicular access, structural systems, departmental adjacencies,
functional layouts within departments, and utility type and source all
play major roles in developing an economically expandable design.
Provision for future vertical expansion is authorized when approved by
1.8.8 Construction Quality. Facilities shall be designed and
constructed to provide a well-built and enduring product at the lowest
practicable life cycle cost. Specific criteria for individual spaces are
set forth in Appendix A. Materials used in design and construction of
overseas projects shall be in character with materials, techniques, and
methodologies used for similar structures in that country unless, in the
opinion of TMA/DMFO, the Design Agent and the using Military Department,
U.S. standards should prevail.
HDBK-1190 (reference 1f). Additionally, comply with all Service specific
requirements for environmental quality.
1.8.10 Fallout Protection. Provide Fallout protection according to the
HDBK-1190, (reference 1f), and as directed by the TMA/DMFO, using
Military Department and Design Agents.
1.8.11 Arctic/Subarctic construction. Facility design must meet or
exceed Army Technical Manual TM-5-852 (reference 1m). The requirements
addressed in these technical manuals include but are not limited to
adverse temperature, wind, snow, thermal stress due to frost heaving and
permafrost conditions, labor and material costs associated with remote
locations, and sub-zero temperature fuel additives and synthetic
1.8.12 Antiterrorism and Force Protection (AT/FP). All projects must
(AT/FP) Construction Standards 16 December 1999 or latest revision as

188.8.131.52 Disposition of Excess Facilities.
Provide descriptive plan for
the removal of excess facilities.
1.9 Improvement/Alteration of Existing Facilities. The criteria
contained herein are not to be used as the sole justification for any
addition, alterations or improvements to an existing facility. Rather
these criteria define requirements that shall be met when improvement or
alterations of existing facilities, or sub-portions or systems thereof,
are specifically authorized by reference in the project document.
