not be placed in the project specification.
Conventional scales shall be located directly under the title of each plan,
elevation, section, detail, etc. (EXAMPLE: SCALE 1/8" = 1'- 0"). Closely
related groups of details having identical scales and tied together with a
common title may receive a single indication of scale under their common
In addition to conventional scales, a series of graphic scales which shall
include every scale used on the sheet shall be located at the lower right
corner of each sheet. Scales shall be placed in sequence according to size,
with the smallest uppermost. Below each graphic scale (or set of graphic
scales) include the note "CHECK GRAPHIC SCALES BEFORE USING". It is not
sufficient to place all graphic scales on one master sheet; each sheet must be
treated independently as each sheet is reduced in size for bidding purposes
and not always in exact-scaled proportions. For this reason it is imperative
that graphic scales be shown on each sheet and that they are accurate.
A/E Signatures and Seals
All supervisors, designers, draftsmen and checkers who are directly concerned
with the preparation of the drawings shall place their surnames on each mylar
in the spaces indicated in the title block. A registered corporate member of
the prime A/E firm or a responsible person of comparable status shall sign all
mylars in the "submitted by" section of the title block. The title and/or
index sheet shall be sealed and signed by this same individual. All drawings,
other than the title and/or index sheet, shall be sealed and signed by the
architect or engineer in responsible charge of the work portrayed on that
drawing. Drawings prepared by consultants to the prime A/E may be sealed and
signed by the consultant. Registration seals (of a reproducible media) shall
be stamped in the space indicated. (See the chapter titled "General
Responsibilities of the A/E" for registration requirements.) A/E SEALS AND
SIGNATURES SHALL BE PLACED ON THE FINAL SUBMISSION DRAWINGS.
NAVFAC Drawing Numbers
The A/E shall contact the DM prior to the final submission (when the exact
number of project drawings is known) to obtain NAVFAC drawing numbers for the
project. NAVFAC Drawing Numbers shall appear on the final submission drawings
in the appropriate portion of the title block for each drawing.
Computer-Aided Design/Drafting (CADD)
The use of computer graphics systems for the design and production of project
drawings has resulted in increased productivity and more accurate drawings.
A/Es are encouraged to use CADD on work for NORTHDIV. The A/E shall consult
with the DM and the NORTHDIV CADD Coordinator for details regarding
conventions, abbreviations and symbols which must be used when project
drawings are produced by computer graphics.
Projects involving modular designs (see the chapter titled "Criteria" for
definition) may require that the A/E use CADD. See the Appendix "A" for such
a requirement and for required formats, standards and submittals. For
additional information, see MIL-HDBK 1006/1 and consult with the DM and
NORTHDIV CADD Coordinator.
