CHAPTER 9
CRITERIA
9.1
General
The A/E shall design the project in accordance with the criteria listed in the
Appendix "A", the criteria listed herein, standard architectural and
engineering practice, and any other criteria specifically provided by the
government.
In most cases, the government is not obligated to design facilities in
accordance with local laws, codes and regulations (i.e., national codes
adopted by the states, state codes, or local codes written by municipalities).
Exceptions to this are (1) when mitigating certain health hazard situations
such as asbestos, lead paint, etc., (2) in the area of environmental
protection (see the paragraph below titled "Environmental Protection") and (3)
where the government plans to build on leased land where the leasing agreement
requires conformance to local codes.  In such cases, the need to address such
local code requirements will be specifically indicated in the Appendix "A"
(see the Chapter titled "Site Investigation Services" for more information).
In some cases, government criteria has been tailored around or references
local practice or industry standards.  In cases where both government and
local criteria apply, the more stringent of the design criteria applies.  The
A/E will find that, generally, government criteria either meets, or often
exceeds, local practice requirements.
