NAVFAC Design-Build Model Request for Proposal - Small Project Template


NOTES:  Include items that are of primary importance to the activity/user.

Provide a description of the appropriate level of architectural refinement including building type, character, style, historic, and economic considerations. Describe in general, if special scale, finishes, and materials are required for architectural significance.

Address requirement for integrated sustainable design strategies and features to minimize the energy consumption of the facilities; conserve resources; minimize adverse effects to the environment; and improve occupant productivity, health, and comfort.

The constructed facility must meet the intent of Guiding Principles.  Refer to UFC 1-200-02, High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirements for requirements.

If applicable, describe any special design challenges. Identify the most difficult site and project specific issues in the design solution for this project.

If required, describe any need for flexibility for change of use or any adaptability for future expansion


NOTE:  Use this bracketed option to include additional codes and standards that are not appropriate to list in Part 4 because they are not applicable to all projects.

In addition to the codes and standards listed in Part 4, the design and construction must be in accordance with the latest revision/edition of the following referenced codes and standards. The term "Latest Revision/Edition" is defined as the version as of the project award date.

[1.  Regional Standard:_____.]

[2.  State Standard_____.]]


NOTE:  All NAVFAC projects are subject to sustainable design criteria. RFP preparer must edit and incorporate UFGS section 01 33 29.05 20 Sustainability Reporting for Design Build and associated requirements into this project.

Design and construct project per sustainability requirements identified in Section 01 33 29.05 20, Sustainability Reporting for Design-Build. Additional specific sustainability requirements are found in this document.


NOTE:  UFC 3-210-10, Low Impact Development, complies with DoD Policy on Implementing Section 438 of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) dated 19 January 2010. The project footprint consists of all horizontal hard surfaces and disturbed areas associated with the project development, including both building area and pavements (such as roads, parking, and sidewalks.) These requirements do not apply to internal renovations, maintenance, or resurfacing of existing pavements.

Provide a design that incorporates low impact development strategies complying with UFC 3-210-10, Low Impact Development. For Navy and Marine Corps projects, comply with Navy LID Policy (commonly referred to as the Penn Memo). The Navy LID policy sets a goal of no net increase in stormwater and sediment or nutrient loading from major renovation projects and construction projects. Major renovation projects are defined as having a storm water component and exceeding $5 million and major construction projects are defined as exceeding $750,000.

If the project footprint exceeds 5000 SF (464.5 SM) and does not maintain the predevelopment hydrology to the maximum extent technically feasible (METF), these constraints must be documented on the NAVFAC LID Data Card (NLDC) and approved by the Government's civil reviewer. The NLDC can be found at: . If LID is not implemented to the METF as defined in UFC 3-210-10, Low Impact Development, a waiver must be obtained from the Regional Engineer.  Coordinate waiver review and approval with civil Technical Discipline Coordinator (TDC). LID Waiver Form can be found at:

These policies are in addition to State or Local storm water management program permit requirements. The DOR must balance all applicable requirements, Federal, State, Local and the above stated policies, and acquire required regulatory permits when managing stormwater generated.


All control systems (including systems separate from an energy management control system) must be designed, acquired, and executed in accordance with DoD Instruction 8500.01, DoD Instruction 8510.01, and as required by individual Facilities Engineering Command (FEC) or installation implementation policy.

Incorporate ICS Security Controls located in NIST 800-82, Appendix G, Table G-1.
