Paragraph # and Title (if any) Note to Designer Change Text
     
 READ FIRST:
 
  1. As of 1 July 2019, City Light and Power (CLP) is now responsible for JBLM's Electrical Distribution system and hereby known as the electrical system owners.  The system point of demarcations are the primary power lines while the secondary lines will remain with the DPW shops.
  2. Per the privatization contract, CLP is responsible for Street Lighting while Traffic Signals, Airfield Lighting, Parking Lot, Walkway and Building Lights still remain with the DPW shops
 
 
For areas not included in the above electrical utility privatization, the below design requirements still apply:
 
Design Requirements
  1. Provide control for exterior lighting in troop areas (i.e., barracks, admin, supply facilities) through use of single photo-cell (fail in on position) and lighting contactor or controller. Photocell shall be located in an area easily accessible with no more than 8' step ladder.
  2. Where new or replacement electrical lighting fixtures are required in the JBLM Lewis-Main Historic District, AE 's shall refer to Maintenance and Repair Manual for Historic structures at JBLM, WA.
  3. General: Provide exterior lighting appropriate for the building and parking lot functions and to comply with LEED credit requirements to minimize light pollution, 10 CFR Part 436- Federal Procurement of Energy Efficient Products, and ECB 2012-15, Exterior Lighting Performance. Exterior lighting shall conform to the applicable Area Design Guides. Lighting circuits shall be installed in Schedule 40 PVC conduit. In paved areas subject to vehicular traffic, conduits shall be encased in a minimum of 3"-thick 3,000 psi concrete extended a minimum of 6 feet beyond the roadway or parking area; in all other areas, conduits may be encased in sand and direct-buried.
  4. Lighting Fixtures. New fixtures shall be LED type. Luminaries shall be UL listed for use in wet locations. Optical systems shall maintain a minimum of IP65 rating. Power supply shall have a minimum power factor of .90 and <20% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). EMC shall meet or exceed FCC CFR Part 15. Transient voltage shall comply with ANSI C62.41 Cat. A. LEDs shall be tested in accordance with IES LM-80 testing procedures and shall have a mean correlated color temperature of 4000K (standard) plus or minus 300K, with a minimum 80 CRI. LEDs shall be "fail to short" type such that the failure of a single LED will not affect the performance of any other LED in the luminary. All luminaries shall be photometrically tested by certified independent testing laboratories in accordance with IESNA LM-79 testing procedures.
  5. Parking Areas/Pedestrian Pathways: Meet the applicable criteria Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) recommended illumination levels and the state Non-Residential Energy Code. Provide 12 ft tall lights for pathways. No bollard lights for pathways. Provide 30-inch minimum burial depth and 6-inch wide warning tape at 12 inches, minimum, below finished grade. Provide site lighting circuits and controls from the adjacent primary facility service. The parking lot and pedestrian pathways shall have photoelectric control. Provide a manual bypass for the photoelectric controls. Locate control panels in electrical rooms for access by PW. At Lawnmower Storage Buildings and similar locations, provide controls in a lockable NEMA 3R enclosure mounted on the exterior of the building.
  6. Security Lighting: Provide security lighting for boundaries and controlled areas, when applicable. Lighting shall meet but not exceed minimum illumination as indicated in the Security Engineering Technical Manual (SETM) 853, Volume 2.
  7. Streets & Roadways: Provide street lighting with photoelectric control and grounding system for new streets and streets that are modified as part of this project. Fixture housing shall be die cast aluminum with internal cooling fins, tool-less entry, and universal four-bolt slip-fitter for mounting to mast arm. Provide hand holes at each lighting pole. Handhole lids in traffic areas shall be rated at H-25. Metal lids shall be grounded with a flexible copper strap.
  8. Pole Foundation: Refer to WSDOT Standard Plan J-28.30-1 for steel light standard concrete foundation detail. The foundation shall be level with a 6-foot minimum depth and shall accommodate a 4-bolt pattern. For parking areas, the foundation shall be at least 30" above grade. For street lighting, the foundation shall be between 0 and 6" from grade.
  9. Exterior Lighting Conductors: Provide copper conductors with 90-degree C insulation and suitable for use in an underground duct system. Street light circuits shall operate at 480V. Provide junction boxes with galvanized frames and lids with the appropriate legends marked on the cover (street lighting). Provide #4 ACSR Triplex conductors for overhead systems. Voltage drop shall be limited to 5 percent total to branch circuit loads as recommended by the National Electrical Code.
