designs.  Where the style, character, quality, and life cycle cost of
previously constructed facilities meet the User Activities' needs, strongly
consider site adaptation of those facilities; e.g., if a new BEQ is planned
in the same vicinity as a BEQ constructed within the past 3 years that
meets the User's needs, site adapt the previous design.  Include a
statement as to the consideration made of the use of definitives, standard
designs and previous designs.  Site Adaptation of Standard or Working Drawings:  On certain
repetitive-type structures, such as BEQs, BOQs, subsistence buildings, and
on certain technical structures, standard or working drawings will be
furnished to the A-E for site adaptation.  Site adaptation, in general,
consists of modifying the structure to fit the site and making necessary
mechanical and electrical changes (heating, evaporative cooling, or air
conditioning) to fit the climatic conditions existing at the site.  If
other changes in standard plans or working drawings are contemplated, such
changes will be spelled out in the "Scope."  It is not the A-E's
responsibility to review or check the design of the standard or working
drawings furnished for site adaptation unless specifically spelled out in
the "Scope."  However, if errors in the drawings are discovered or if the
design or functional layout appears unworkable on the site adaptation, the
matter should be brought immediately to the attention of the PDE.  If the
A-E cannot fit necessary mechanical or electrical equipment into the space
provided in the standard plan, then such space will be adjusted or
increased as necessary for the equipment as part of site adaptation.  In
site adapting of another A-E's prototype design, the level of
responsibility for the original design will be spelled out in the "Scope."
Information available concerning known problems with the original design
will be made available.
The Navy must design and construct energy efficient facilities because the
Energy Policy Act of 1992 and Executive Order 12902 require the Federal
Government to reduce energy consumption (30 percent by 2005), while
significantly increasing the use of solar and other renewable energy
sources and designing and constructing new facilities to minimize the life
cycle cost of the facility.
The Navy must change the way facilities are currently designed and
constructed because new facilities must be designed to ensure maximum
energy conservation, and integrated approach to designing Navy facilities
will minimize energy consumption, optimize life cycle cost effective
renewable energy possibilities, and yield high quality durable facilities.

Economic Development and Tourism, State of Hawaii; and other creative,
imaginative and innovative energy savings techniques.  MIL-HDBK-1190A
