c. Review of available data. The review process should begin by reviewing available
geotechnical reports, structural drawings, building materials data, and specifications to obtain
pertinent information needed to complete the Structural Review Score Sheet. These documents
are likely to be kept at the base facility engineering (FE) office. All data obtained from these
documents will be confirmed in the field whenever possible. The building Seismic Use Group
should be designated on the Lateral Load System Data sheet.
d. Building exemption. If it becomes apparent during the review that one of the parameters
listed in appendix A applies, the building may be declared exempt, and no further review will be
e. Building inspection visit. The objectives of the field survey are to confirm the information
obtained at the FE office, and to obtain additional information needed to complete the Lateral
Load System Data Sheet and the Structural Review Score Sheet. The general condition of the
building should also be noted, including any past damage to structural system elements from
fire, earthquakes, wind, lack of maintenance, insect damage to wood, etc. This visit will require
access to the facility, but need not be an extensive inspection. Sketches should be made
and/or photographs should be taken of significant items related to structural performance.
f. Final structural score. The finalization of the structural review process includes the
completion of the Structural Review Score Sheet. In some cases, the quantitative final
structural score for the building may be in variance with the qualitative judgment of the reviewer.
When this occurs, the reviewer may determine that the quantitative score should not be used,
and a different outcome of the review process should be selected. In this case, the reviewer will
provide narrative explanation in support of this decision on both the Structural Review Score
Sheet and in the Consolidated Review Results Summary Sheet.
2-4. Documentation. The results of the seismic review procedures described in the preceding
paragraph shall be summarized for each building group in the Installation Report described in
appendix D. Copies of Lateral Load System Data Sheets and the Structural Review Score
Sheets will be attached as appendices to the Installation Report, as indicated in paragraph 1-4b.
