5.14 ELEVATORS: If elevator maintenance service is required, check with
the PDE if O&M funds will be used, requiring a separate bid price line item
in the Project Information Form, attachment to Section 8, Specifications.
5.14.1 Design Requirements: Refer to NAVFAC Guide Specification NFGS-
14210, "Electric Traction Elevators, NFGS-14240, "Hydraulic Elevators," and
NAVFAC Design Manual DM-3.09, "Elevators, Escalators, Dumbwaiters." Also
refer to the following at the end of this Section: Attachment (1), Basic
Elevator Hoistway Dimensions for Design Purposes; Attachment (2), State of
Hawaii Elevator Code Criteria Applicable to Navy Elevators in Hawaii; and
Attachment (3), Elevator Fire Protection Requirements.
5.14.2 Elevator Hoistways Fire Protection Requirements: Follow the fire
protection design guidance stipulated in NAVFAC Design Policy Letter
DPL-91-0003 (dated 17 Jul 1991) for automatic shutdown of the main power
supply for elevators located in facilities equipped with automatic
sprinkler protection. Refer to Attachment C of Appendix N.
5.15 WEIGHT HANDLING EQUIPMENT: The procurement of weight handling
equipment of under 10 tons capacity, associated with a building, or other
facility, not nuclear, hot metals, or special hazard use, is part of the
A-E design responsibility. Unless otherwise directed by the "Scope",
procurement of weight handling equipment 10 tons and higher capacity and
specialized weight handling equipment (nuclear, hot metals, hazardous area,
explosives, and precision handling) is the responsibility of the Northern
Division, Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NORTHNAVFACENGCOM). For
those cases where NORTHNAVFACENGCOM is the procurement agency, promptly
supply the required operating data and pertinent field data for weight
handling equipment to PACNAVFACENGCOM. An early submittal of this
information is required for coordination and timely procurement and
installation of the equipment. State the need for weight handling
equipment and the understanding as to how the equipment is to be designed
and procured. Discuss any special weight handling equipment requirements
such as special slings requiring nonstandard hooks with the using activity.
The A-E is responsible for understanding weight handling operations for the
project to the extent that appropriate equipment, speeds, and controls are
specified. Insure adequate clearance envelope and dimensions are indicated
in the plans and specifications to assure no operational interference
between WHE and building obstructions. Indicate where sway braces are
required for monorails and crane rails. Show required details. See NAVFAC
INSTRUCTION 11450.1 (latest revision) for detailed discussion of
responsibilities concerning weight handling equipment.
5.16.1 Site Grading: Provide positive drainage away from structures and a
positive differential between finish floor elevations and the finish grades
adjacent to structures. Minimize earthwork wherever possible with design
based on a reasonable balance of cut and fill quantities.
5.16.2 Storm Sewer System and Surface Drainage: Indicate the storm flow
for the project and how it was derived. Indicate if the existing system to
be connected to is adequate to handle the additional flow and how this was
determined. At the l00% submittal provide calculations to verify the
quantity of storm flow (use rational method) and the sizes, material, class
and "D" load design of all storm sewers and culverts and sizes of drop
inlets. Provide a small scale topographic map which depicts the individual
drainage areas and their overland flow path.
