Construction estimates are computed in the same
manner as components, with the following exception.
In addition to primary facility capacity, secondary
capacity, as described in the NAVFAC P-72, is included.
This is used, for example, in the 700 series of facilities
where the primary capacity is expressed in personnel
and the secondary, in square feet.
The recoverability code is a broad indication of the
relocatability or recoverability. The code A indicates
total recoverability, and D indicates a disposable
facility. More details are found in table 4-1, Recover-
Figure 4-4 shows a typical entry for an assembly.
Assembly 32602 provides the necessary material for the
installation of a 200-kW generator. Header information
is the same as that for a facility. Assembly line-item
requirements are listed by cognizance symbol and NSN.
The unit of issue, weight, cubic feet, and dollar value
are extracted from supply files once the requirement
data is entered. This data changes often, but frequent
changes are not made in the Facilities Planning Guide
for stock numbers with minor price-level changes.
Ordering of Components, Facilities, or
Components are usually ordered only under a
mobilization situation and requested through the CNO.
Facilities and assemblies can be ordered without CNO
approval if reimbursement is provided. Requests for
release are forwarded to NCBC, Port Hueneme.
Attention is directed to the Facilities Projects Manual,
OPNAVINST 11010.20 series (July 1985), regarding
project approvals for peacetime use, and to Relocatable
Buildings, Procurement and Use of, OPNAVINST
11010.33 series (October 1984), and DOTINST

Index of Facilities
Suppose you have a requirement for an electrical
distribution system underground. To determine what is
available in the ABFC system to satisfy the requirement,
look in P-437, volume 2, part 2, Index of Facilities,
under the 800 series (Utilities and Ground Improve-
ments), as shown in figure 4-5. If an approximate
11,000-foot system is needed, facility 81230AB can be
used. Figure 4-6 gives the information you need to fulfill
the requirement for an underground electrical
Certain installed equipment or collateral equipment,
such as furniture and fixtures contributed by others, are
not furnished with the facilities or the assemblies listed
in the P-437. You must request this equipment
separately. The assembly listings indicate what is
installed or what NAVFAC collateral equipment is
A naval mobile construction battalion (NMCB), an
amphibious construction battalion (PHIBCB), a
construction battalion unit (CBU), or any other unit of
the NCF must be ready to deploy or redeploy by sea, air,
or land. NCF units must respond to an assigned mission
by providing immediate support to Navy, Marine Corps,
and other forces. Mobile units may also be required to
perform disaster recovery operations.
