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, Recoverability Code.
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.
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 4165.56 (April 1981), regarding the relocatable building program.
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 Improvements), 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 distribution system.
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 provided.
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.
