CHAPTER 4 DESIGN-BUILD SUBMITTAL REQUIREMENTS
DESIGN-BUILD DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS.
There are two instances where Design-Build construction documentation may vary from
Design-Bid-Build documentation. In Design-Build, the Contractor may submit
manufacturer's catalog data for a particular product in lieu of a prescriptive specification.
The other instance is that shop drawings can be included as design drawings. Refer to
the Design-Build Request for Proposal (RFP) for additional direction for these two
CRITICAL PATH DESIGN SUBMITTALS.
The government prefers to review as few submittal packages as possible. Critical Path
Design Submittals are acceptable if they are substantiated as having an impact to the
critical path in the Contractor's Accepted Network Analysis Schedule. A Critical Path
Design Submittal must include all Design Analyses, Drawings, Specifications, and
Product Data required to fully describe the project element for Government review.
This submittal must be a complete final submittal of the foundation design.
This submittal must be a complete final submittal of the structural system of the
building(s), including the foundation design.
Building Enclosure Submittal.
This submittal must be a complete final submittal and must include all construction
documentation of the exterior building enclosure, including foundation design, structural
system, along with the architectural exterior walls, windows and other glazing, and
Remaining Work Submittal.
A Remaining Work Submittal would be a submittal that incorporated all other work that
was not included in a previously submitted Critical Path Submittal described in the
previous paragraphs. A Remaining Work Submittal, combined with all of the
subsequent Critical Path Submittals, must be a complete set of construction documents
for a facility.
QUALITY ASSURANCE / QUALITY CONTROL.
Quality Assurance / Quality Control must be in accordance with UFC 1-200-01. This
will include inspection and testing, and may include a Quality Assurance Plan and
Structural Observations where applicable.
