roofing system proposed for the project. Accordingly, in addition to
reviewing the requirements of MIL-HDBK 1005/1 and conferring with
NORTHDIV personnel, the A/E shall consult with ACTIVITY personnel
regarding their maintenance programs for roofing. It is the
synthesis of this criteria, guidance and information which will aid
in selecting and designing the most appropriate roofing system for
For new construction, a minimum slope of 1/2 inch per foot is
preferred. Obtain pitch by sloping the structural members in lieu of
using moisture bearing lightweight concrete fills, asphaltic dry
fills, or tapered board insulations. On reroofing projects, a slope
of 1/2 inch per foot is also preferred, wherever practical, but a
minimum 1/4 inch per foot slope is required. Ensure positive
drainage along valleys between internal roof drains; use crickets or
tapered insulation when necessary. Consider steep sloped roof
systems whenever feasible. Avoid rooftop mounted equipment.
For projects involving reroofing of existing roofs, the A/E shall
provide calculations to show that the existing roof framing will
support the new roof materials as well as the effects of all live and
dead loads (see the chapter titled "Site Investigation" for
requirements regarding inspection of the existing roof framing and
decking and the chapter titled "Structural Design" for requirements
regarding submission of calculations).
Do not use loose insulating fill in masonry walls.
b) Avoid the use of fire-rated suspended ceilings.
structure by alternate means.
c) Consider operable windows. Use them when required by code
and at other locations if compatible with energy, operational, and
d) Avoid the use of single wythe concrete masonry walls where
moisture penetration will cause problems. These walls may be used
where water penetration and humidity are not a problem (i.e., certain
service and utility buildings).
