d) Give the construction contractor as many choices of material as
possible consistent with design requirements. Define sizes on drawings and
materials in the specifications.
e) Review referenced publications to confirm that the type, size, and
class designations used in the NFGS are the same as are used in the applicable
reference publications, especially referenced publications which have been
updated since the NFGSs were issued.
Specify disposition of electrical items to be removed.
g) For Air Force projects which include switchgear, switchboards and
panelboards add the following statement to the specifications:
"Switchgear, switchboards and panelboards shall be constructed and
assembled by the same manufacturer that produces the protective devices
housed in the completed line-up, housing, or enclosure."
h) In NFGS 16402, "Interior Wiring", paragraph 2.13.1 add:
shall be copper."
i) For 400 HERTZ systems, the derating factors for 60 HZ equipment
shall be specified.
j) In NFGS-16510, "Interior Lighting", paragraph 2.11.2, delete the
option of providing "self powered luminous" exit signs. Also, in paragraph
3.1.1, delete the option of allowing the contractor to wire exit signs and
battery pack to separate circuit.
k) Include NFGS 16670, "Lightning Protection", edited to suit the
project when appropriate.
l) Provide a detailed breakdown of the contractor's responsibilities
and requirements for UPS installation and start-up.
m) When indicated in the Appendix "A", include system start-up and test
procedures, including acceptance checks, for all electrical and electronic
systems and subsystems. See the chapter titled "Preparation of
Specifications" for more information.
