engineering studies, privatization studies, etc.) performed by the engineering elements of the
(1) Alternative One. A project design team can be established for each Installation Support
project. The design team should consist of all of the technical disciplines needed to complete the
design of a specific project. In some cases, this may require one, two, or three technical
disciplines and in other cases, all technical disciplines may be required. A design team leader will
be appointed for each design team and each member of the team must understand the objectives
of the project, and work under the direction and guidance of the design team leader. The design
team leader must coordinate and verify all external design team requirements with the project
manager. See ER 5-7-1 (FR), for the role of the project manager regarding installation support.
(2) Alternative Two. One Installation Support design team can be established for all
Installation Support projects in a design agency. This design team should consist of all of the
technical disciplines required for Installation Support. For each Installation Support project, the
required technical disciplines and design team leader will be selected from the Installation Support
design team. This team will operate the same as the project design team in Alternative One
(3) Alternative Three. This design team can operate in the same manner as the project
design teams in Alternatives One and Two, except that the design team leader will always be the
same for all Installation Support projects.
(a) The goal of the design team regarding facilities is to provide facilities which are
functional, operational, durable, economical, sanitary, and safe; are aesthetically pleasing; are
readily constructable with a minimum of cost growth during construction; are easily operable after
occupancy; are maintainable at a reasonable cost; and, exceed all customer expectations and
requirements, including those with respect to criteria, budget, timeliness, and quality.
(b) The goal of the design team regarding services, including Operational and
Maintenance (O&M) activities and products, is to provide services and products to military
installations that are readily available at a reasonable cost, and exceed all customer expectations,
and requirements, including requirements with respect to performance and quality.
(c) The goal for both, the design team and the district team regarding facilities,
services, and products should also include exceeding the customer's expectations and
requirements on warranty follow-up and providing all maps, manuals, drawings, and technical
data at the final or within three months of the turnover.
