Follow requirements of NAVFACINST 9830.1, Sustainable Development Policy.
NAVFAC policy is to reduce the total ownership costs, including life-cycle costs of shore
facilities, by incorporating sustainable development principles and strategies in the
planning, programming, design, construction, operation and maintenance, sustainment,
extent possible, consistent with mission, budget and client requirements.
For sustainable design procedures and requirements for construction contracts see:
o Design Guidance, UFC 3-100-10N, Design: General Architectural Requirements.
o For Design-Build contracts: In Part Two General Requirements, UFGS 01 33
00.05 20, Construction Submittal Procedures; UFGS 01 33 10.05 20, Design
Submittal Procedures; and Section 01 45 00.05 20, Design and Construction
o For Design-Build contracts: Part Three Project Program, Chapter 1, Project
Description, and Chapter 2, Program Objectives, and additional design
Use the U. S. Green Building Council's LEED Green Building Rating System as a tool to
apply sustainable development principles and as a metric to measure the sustainability
achieved throughout the planning, design and construction processes. Projects that
must meet this certification are described in NAVFAC INST 9830.1. These projects
must meet the LEED Certified level; unless justifiable conditions exist that limit the
pursuit and accomplishment of the LEED credits necessary for achieving the Certified
The Government determines the minimum sustainable LEED goals and verification
methods. For Design-Bid-Build projects and for RFP development, the DOR will identify
the sustainable LEED goals.
PHYSICAL SECURITY AND ANTITERRORISM.
DoD Instruction 2000.16, DoD Antiterrorism (AT) Standards and OPNAV Instruction
3300.53A, Navy Antiterrorism Program, establish the policy for Physical Security and
Antiterrorism. Design inhabited buildings to meet the requirements of UFC 4-010-01,
DoD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings; UFC 4-010-02, DoD Minimum
Antiterrorism Standoff Distances for Buildings; and Combatant Commander Anti-
terrorism/Force Protection construction standards. It is important to remember that the
project documents provide only the minimum amount of information necessary for the
installation of all elements required for force protection and must not contain information
on force protection methods, philosophy, or information on design threats, as this
information is considered sensitive and for official use only.
