A separate plan of the Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear
Explosion (CBRNE) protected area, if programmed, showing how the spaces
would functionally operate.
Plans showing single lines drawing of the distribution systems
of major mechanical, electrical/communications, and plumbing (MEP) from
the MEP rooms to the areas served as required by the design agent and/or
the using service.
A comprehensive narrative describing various proposed
architectural and engineering aspects of the projects as follows:
Civil Design Narrative.
Refine the S-1 site investigation
report and utilities reports.
Architectural Design Narrative. Address the overall
architectural concept including: Exterior wall systems and finish
materials being considered, acoustics, base architectural plan,
floor-to-floor heights, proposed roofing materials, slope(s), styles,
energy conservation features, life safety, and fire protection features,
and Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS) compliance;
Structural Design Narrative. A recommended selection of a
structural system based on an economic study. The structural system
selected shall be the one which best combines economy and suitability
regarding functionality, design systems, space configuration,
architectural features and seismic (Section 6) resistance configuration
for the specific project. Narrative justification, describing the basis
for system selection, along with drawings of the selected structural
system adequately developed so that no additional major engineering
decisions are required, shall be provided. The economic study shall
employ a method which considers all factors and requirements of the
system's total life cycle costs;
Seismic Design Narrative. Summarize the seismic design
considerations including "I" and "K" values and the level of protection
required. Discuss post-earthquake operation requirements;
Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Design
Narrative. Discuss design considerations and space requirements for the
primary and secondary HVAC systems being considered. Provide a written
description of the anticipated smoke control system, passive or active.
Plumbing Design Narrative. Discuss design considerations and
space requirements for the various plumbing systems, including domestic
hot and cold water, fuel gas, medical gases, sanitary waste, acid waste,
and storm drains. Discuss water supply, quality, required storage, and
distribution systems. Discuss hot water generation, storage,
