1.4.3 OZONE DEPLETING SUBSTANCES USED AS REFRIGERANTS

Change section title to "Ozone Depleting and Greenhouse Gas Refrigerants" and make the following changes:

In the first paragraph, change "appliances owned by NASA" to "equipment containing refrigerants".

 

Change the first sentence in the fifth paragraph to read: "In addition, provide two copies of all applicable certifications to the
Contracting Officer at least 14 calendar days prior to initiating maintenance, repair, servicing, dismantling or disposal of appliances, including:" Also, add the following at the end of 1.4.3: "One copy of all certificates will be forwarded by the contracting official to the JBLM Pollution Prevention Program (Bldg 1210) for actions on JBLM or to the JBLM-YTC Environmental Division for actions on JBLM-YTC."

 

Add the following: " All ozone depleting substances are restricted on JBLM.  Any use of such substances on JBLM requires submission of an exemption request form and prior written approval from the JBLM Pollution Prevention Program for actions on JBLM Lewis-Main, Lewis-North, McChord Field, or supported external facilities; or from JBLM-YTC Environmental Compliance for actions on JBLM-YTC.  The exemption form can be obtained at ./doc_files/0226%20Restricted%20Chemical%20Exemption%20Request.pdf.  In addition, any use of a class I ozone depleting substance requires Army Acquisition Executive approval and will be coordinated through the JBLM Air Program via the Contracting Officer or their representative.

 

In addition, avoid use of refrigerants with high global warming potentials by only using EPA Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP)Program-approved alternatives when feasible.  http://www2.epa.gov/significant-new-alternatives-policy-snap

1.4.4 USE OF OZONE DEPLETING SUBSTANCES, OTHER THAN REFIRGERANTS

Change the text to read:

All ozone depleting substances are restricted on JBLM. Any use of such substances on JBLM requires submission of an exemption request form and prior written approval from the JBLM Pollution Prevention Program for actions on JBLM Lewis-Main, Lewis-North, McChord Field, or supported external facilities; or from JBLM-YTC Environmental Compliance for actions on JBLM-YTC. The exemption form can be obtained at ./doc_files/0226%20Restricted%20Chemical%20Exemption%20Request.pdf. In addition, any use of a class I ozone depleting substance requires Army Acquisition Executive approval and will be coordinated through the JBLM Air Program via the Contracting Officer or their representative.

1.4.7 SUSTAINABLE DESIGN CRITERIA

2.3 STANDARD PRODUCTS

If 01 33 29 is not incorporated, change referenced section to 01 57 20.00 10 and ensure it contains added language at paragraphs 1.6 and 1.15.

Duct Liner Change Note.

Change note to read "NOTE:  Duct Liner shall not be used on JBLM."

2.12.3 AIR FILTERS

Make change in note section

Filters: 2" thick, 30% efficient, pleated throw-away type are standard filters. Use other types only for unique situations. 

2.12.3.10 FILTER GAUGES

Add to the end of the paragraph

Provide filter gauges on filter banks. See JBLM DDC specification for requirement for separate device indicating pressure drop to control system.

 

Design Requirements

  1. See UFGS 23 52 00 for comments related to hot water heating piping.
  2. See UFGS 23 82 00.00 20 for comments relating to heat pumps, AC units, and similar equipment.
  3. See UFGS 23 64 26 for comments relating to chilled water piping systems.

 

 

Notes to Designers on Drawing Content

  1. Zoning: A separate VAV box (or similar zoning device) is not necessary for every single office. Use zoning similar to as found in standard private sector commercial offices when designing office areas.
  2. Accessibility: Unit must be located so as to be accessible for maintenance. Units, coils, VAV boxes, and similar items shall not be located more than 12 feet above the floor unless a catwalk, mezzanine or similar platform is designed at the units to allow for proper maintenance.
  3. Removal: Allow adequate room for removal of equipment without removing portions of the building. Allow room for coil pull.
