capabilities of the component. The site plan pertaining to each component is depicted by a NAVFAC drawing number. However, drawings in volume 1, part 1, are indexed by component designation, not drawing numbers. The word NONE appears for components that have no site plans. The facilities required to make the component operative are listed in numerical sequence by DoD category code. The alpha suffix for each facility designator indicates differences between sizes, types, or layouts of facilities with the same functional purpose. Facility capacity is expressed in terms of the units of measure used in the Category Codes Facilities, NAVFAC P-72. The component capacity is figured by multiplying the facility capacity and the quantity. Weight and cube are measured in normal units for export packing. Weight and construction efforts are computed using the Seabee Planner's and Estimator's Handbook, NAVFAC P-405. Average construction conditions are assumed and computations are based on normal Seabee skill levels.
You compute the total of the weight, cube, and dollar value columns by adding all facilities or assemblies required in both tropical and northern climates plus the unique requirements for either tropical or northern areas.
Summary data located below the component facility listings provides information on the following:
1. Construction standards (CONST STD) taken from Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), publication 3, are grouped into two classifications: initial and temporary, Initial (INIT) is a duration requirement of less than 6 months. Temporary (TEMP) is a duration requirement of from 6 to 60 months.
2. Days of construction duration (LAPSED DAYS) are based on job requirements, optimum construction crew size, and full-material availability.
3. Often the land requirements (LAND ACRES), based on the assumed plot plan, will not be followed exactly because of terrain or existing buildings. The idealized plot plan was developed to design supporting utility systems. The information contained in the utility facilities has been increased to allow for variation in terrain.
4. The connected electrical load (POWER KVA) has been computed based on knowledge of ABIOL or TOA contents. A load diversity factor has been applied to compute the kVA demand.
5. Water and sewer (GPD) are based on ABIOL or TOA contents and the utility systems designed to this criteria.
6. Fuel usage (FUEL GAL) is computed on 30-day requirements for installed engine-driven or fuel-fired equipment only. No allowance for automotive, construction, weight handling, and other jobsite support equipment fuel is included. Fuel is not provided when facilities or assemblies are shipped. NAVSUP provides fuel as a contribution when whole components are shipped.
7. The skill requirements (SKILLS MAN- HOURS) are designated by Seabee (OF-13) ratings and are expressed in man-hours, as computed for each facility.
Figure 4-3 shows a typical facility entry in part 2 of volume 2 - the electric power plant diesel 2-200 kW generators, without tank, facility 811 10R. Adjacent to the facility number, the heading shows the JCS planning factor applied. This planning factor is based on Planning Factors for Military Construction in Contingency Operations, Joint Staff Memorandum (MJCS) 235-86. The header also describes the basic capability of the facility. After the facility capability description is the NAVFAC drawing number. The drawing number is shown for reference purposes. All drawings in volume 1, part 2, are indexed by facility number.
The assemblies required to make the facility functionally operational are listed in assembly-number sequence. These numbers were derived from the prime trade involved in the construction. The 30,000 series indicates Construction Electricians. There is an exception to this numbering system. The exception is for Civil Engineer Support Equipment (CESE). CESE is identified by an equipment cost code (ECC). In this example, ECC 512801 is a 200-kW generator.
A brief description appears next, followed when appropriate by the code "N" for the North Temperate Zone or "T" for the Tropical Zone. Only assemblies required for Arctic operation are designated code "N." Other facilities or assemblies are designed for use in both North and South Temperate Zones and Tropical Zones. The quantity given is used as a multiplier, indicating the number of assemblies to be ordered. Weight and cubic feet are measured in normal terms for export packing. Weight, cubic feet, and dollar value reflect totals for each line.Continue Reading
