Appropriate Architecture
The chapter titled "Command Design Policy" covers NAVFACENGCOM design
philosophy for Naval shore facilities.  In addition DM 1.01, "Basic
Architectural Requirements and Design Considerations", establishes
NAVFACENGCOM's appropriate architecture policy.  Essentially, this
policy calls for architectural design which is equally respectful of
image, function, environment and economy.  The goal is to provide
architectural design which is timeless (not stylistic), dignified and
serious (not frivolous), honest and rational (reflects function),
respectful and subservient to the whole (relates to and enhances
surroundings but is not monumental), and cost-effective.
DM 1.01 also contains general criteria relative to site design (from
an aesthetic standpoint), energy conservation (building placement and
orientation, passive energy conservation measures, building form,
glazing, shading, daylighting, etc.), and other items of
architectural concern.
Base Exterior Architectural Plans (BEAPs)
Many ACTIVITIES have developed BEAPs as planning documents.  BEAPs
contain criteria relative to achieving, maintaining and emphasizing a
positive exterior visual environment at an ACTIVITY.  Topics
typically covered in a BEAP include guidance on exterior building
materials, trim and/or colors, building setbacks, exterior
circulation (roads, walks and parking), landscaping, exterior
signage, exterior lighting, site furniture, screening, etc.  When
designing projects at Naval installations which have prepared a BEAP,
the A/E shall address how his proposed architectural design responds
to the requirements of the BEAP as detailed herein.  A copy of the
applicable BEAP will be loaned to the A/E for this purpose.
Handicapped Accessibility
When so indicated in the Appendix "A", the A/E shall design the
project to assure accessibility by physically handicapped persons.
Except for facilities specifically restricted to able-bodied military
personnel, all new facilities and alterations of existing facilities
will require provisions for accessibility by the physically
handicapped.  The A/E shall design for accessibility for physically
handicapped persons in accordance with FED-STD-795, "Uniform Federal
Accessibility Standards (UFAS) (Design for Physically Handicapped
Roof Designs
MIL-HDBK-1001/5, "Roofing and Waterproofing", contains criteria for
designing roof systems, including the reroofing of existing
Designs for roofing must take into consideration such factors as deck
type and strength, slope, fire resistance, wind-uplift resistance,
thermal resistance, vapor control, cost and environmental concerns
(solar radiation, snow, ice, etc.).  In addition, consideration must
be given to the ACTIVITY'S experience and ability to maintain the
