CHAPTER 4 DRAWINGS
Prepare drawings in accordance with Chapter 7, "Electronic Design Deliverables" and
as required herein.
Drawings shall be consistent in presentation and format. If one discipline shows
material selections directly on the details, other disciplines should conform to that
format, and not use numbers to refer to a numerical legend elsewhere on the drawings.
Request NAVFAC drawing numbers from the Government Project Manager, the Design
Manager, or the person assigned locally by the Command to provide drawing numbers.
Provide them with the following information: 1) The amount of numbers required, 2)
The eProjects or Maximo Work Order Number, and 3) The project title. Request
enough numbers (usually 10% more) that additional sheets can be added if necessary.
PROPER USE OF NOTES ON DRAWINGS.
Be consistent with grammar used in notes on drawings. Wherever possible use
declarative statements to describe work to be accomplished by Contractor. For
example, instead of using "Contractor shall provide," use "provide." It is
understood that the notes are written for the Contractor's action.
Do not use "to be" for describing work that will be accomplished by the
Contractor. "To be" implies that someone will accomplish the work other than the
Contractor, such as the Government or another Contractor. If work is to be
accomplished by Government, for example, say "Government will remove
storage building prior to start of construction."
Do not use "install" for work that is to be accomplished by the Contractor.
"Install" means Government or others will furnish equipment or materials and
Contractor will install. "Furnish" means Contractor shall only furnish;
Government or others will install. Use "provide" when the Contractor is to furnish
and install equipment and materials.
Do not use "proposed" for new construction. "Proposed" means future work by
others or work not in this contract.
Do not use "new" for work in the contract. All work shown on the drawings is
considered new, unless indicated otherwise. Inconsistent use of "new"
throughout the drawings could mean that only some of the work is required.
