DESIGN FOR THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED:
5.12.1 Architectural Barriers Act. PL 90-480, passed by Congress in l968
and as amended by PL 94-54l, Title II, in l976 established that certain
facilities financed with Federal funds be designed for the accessibility
and use by the physically handicapped.
5.12.2 Randolph-Sheppard Act. Starting with the FY95 MILCON Program and
the FY94 leasing actions, NAVFAC implemented this Act which calls for blind
vending facilities in new, renovated, or leased facilities to be developed
by the activity during the planning process. The host activity will be
responsible for determining whether or not the state blind agency wants to
establish such a facility in a qualifying project. The Act does not apply
to Navy exchanges or overseas facilities. All other projects will qualify
if the following criteria is met:
a. New construction, MILCON or other project funding for a facility
15,000 SF or more or to be occupied by 100 civilian employees or more.
b. Alteration or renovation which substantially increased floor area
or personnel capacity.
c. Facility leases of 15,000 SF or more or that will be occupied by
100 civilian employees or more.
5.13 FIRE PROTECTION: Fire protection design features shall be in
accordance with MIL-HDBK-1190, Facility Planning and Design Guide,
MIL-HDBK-1008C, Fire Protection For Facilities Engineering, Design, and
construction (for Navy projects), AFR 88-15 Air Force Design Manual
Criteria (for Air Force Projects), and National Fire Protection Association
National Fire Codes. Also follow PACNAVFACENGCOM Code 408 Branch Policies,
Attachment A of Appendix N. Use PACNAVFACENGCOM Specification Guideline
Data, Attachment C of Appendix N, for additional information.
5.13.1 Hydrant Flow Test: Provide hydrant flow test data for applicable
projects at 60% submittal. Attachment C of Appendix N contains method for
conducting flow tests. (See p. VI-1.)
5.13.2 Hydraulic Calculations: Submit hydraulic calculations for projects
requiring sprinkler protection at the 60% submittal stage.
