DOD - UFC 3-101-01
|Publication Date:||28 November 2011|
PURPOSE AND SCOPE.
This UFC provides technical guidance and outlines technical requirements for typical aspects of architectural design services. Architects must use the information in this document in the development of plans, specifications, calculations, construction contract documents, and Design-Build Requests for Proposals (RFP). The information in this guide serves as the minimum architectural requirements. Project conditions may dictate the need for designs that exceed these requirements.
This UFC applies to all agencies of the U.S. Armed Services and their contractors that are preparing construction contract documents for all Department of Defense-owned facilities. These criteria are applicable in the fifty states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. territories and possessions, and as far as practical, at installations in foreign countries. This UFC applies to all types of construction regardless of funding, including properties listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as National Guard and Reserve projects constructed on military installations or nonmilitary DoD property. Certain specialized facilities, such as health facilities, carry more stringent requirements. See UFC or other criteria that are applicable to the respective specialized facility that is being designed. This UFC is applicable to the traditional architectural services customary for Design-Bid-Build design services and for Design- Build construction contracts.
