Fly Fans (air curtains). Fly fans must be installed on all facility
doors and service windows that open to the outside as per health code.
Preferred fly fan location is on the interior of doors. For Navy projects comply
with Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery P-5010 (BUMED P-5010). For the
Army use TB MED-530, Food Sanitation.
Controls. Design control systems for simplicity of operation,
maintenance and energy efficiency. Specify direct digital control (DDC) system
per UFGS 15910N, Direct Digital Control Systems or UFGS 15951A, Direct
Digital Control for HVAC. Coordinate DDC specification to ensure proper
interface to existing or planned base wide DDC/EMCS system.
PLUMBING DESIGN. General guidance for Navy plumbing design
construction and installation must meet the International Plumbing Code (IPC)
and local plumbing code as appropriate. Plumbing design must promote water
conservation to comply with Executive Order (EO) 13123. Additional guidance
provided in the following documents:
Navy & Marine Corps projects use P-80, Planning Criteria for
Navy and Marine Corps Shore Installations category code 722,
"Unaccompanied Personnel Housing-Mess Facilities" and
Updated plumbing design guidance for all services will provided in UFC 3-420-
01, Design: Plumbing to be published March 2003.
Local Conditions. Evaluate local conditions for their influence on
design. Evaluate available fuels for the heating of potable water. Requirements
for active solar system supplements to water heating will be dictated by solar
feasibility analysis per UFC 3-400-01, Design: Energy Conservation. Provide
early analysis of available water supply sources, metering requirements,
pressures, temperatures, and chemical content for the budgeting of necessary
equipment such as bulk water storage, booster pumping, chemical water
treatment for health and operational standards. Preliminary space requirements
presented to the planning team at the appropriate stage of project development
will provide coordination of water and fire protection systems with the type of, and
access for, mobile fire fighting apparatus.
