Schematic Design Submittal (S-2). This submittal includes
development of the room-by-room floor plans, elevations, and initial
analysis of the major architectural and engineering systems based on the
selected (or composite) block plan from S-1. The primary purpose of this
submittal and review is to identify and resolve all major space program
deficiencies at an early stage in design, develop the massing and
aesthetics of the facility, and "fix" the scope of the building. The
Design Agent, using Military department representatives, and A-E, if
required, will present the reviewed S-2 to DMFO. Requests for scope
revisions with justification should be submitted at this time. Scope
changes will not be entertained after approval of S-2 unless fully
justified. DMFO will provide approval/disapproval, with review comments,
within 14 days of the presentation. The following are the minimum
requirements for S-2:
Executive Summary of the following:
- Block Plan selected from S-1, and rationale for the selected
scheme. The primary block plan drawings from S-1 shall be included as
double-page, fold-out, reduced drawings.
- Summary of the narrative describing various proposed architectural
and engineering aspects of the projects.
Site plans showing building location, future expansion, and
existing and proposed structures, topography, utilities, roads and
Floor plans for each floor showing all programmed spaces,
corridors, structural grid system (including columns), electrical and
mechanical equipment rooms, and stairs/elevators/escalators to meet the
functional requirements. All spaces must be labeled with the room name,
the room code from the DMFO Program For Design (PFD), and the programmed
and designed net areas. For addition/alteration projects, preliminary
demolition drawings, with photographs to depict conditions are required.
Separate circulation plans maybe required by the design agent and/or the
using service. MEP room space design shall be based on preliminary
estimates of equipment capacity and building demand.
Plans showing major circulation paths in and around the
facility, as directed by the Agent, for complex projects.
Exterior elevations and major building sections appropriate to
the level of Concept Design development. To assure Post or Base
compatibility, observe and document the physical features of the site and
the character/style of any surrounding building(s).
