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 Planners and Estimators Handbook,
NAVFAC P-405. Average construction conditions are
assumed and computations are based on normal Seabee
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
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
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
7. The skill requirements (SKILLS MAN-
HOURS) are designated by Seabee (OF-13) ratings and
are expressed in man-hours, as computed for each
Figure 4-3 shows a typical facility entry in part 2 of
volume 2the 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.
