existing structures. Sites may be undeveloped or partially cleared or may require partial or total removal of existing structures.
ed as ed systa
The following general considerations should be reflected in the development of the building system design.
1. Housing Types
This Proposal is to provide for building systems which address any one or combination of the following types:
- Single family, detached. These can be individual houses on single
or multiple unit rural, suburban or urban sites.
- Single family, attached.
Row or town house configurations.
Multi-family, low-rise. Non-elevator structures, such as garden apartments with not more than two flights of stairs above grade. Separate consideration may be given to complexes of units with two or less bedrooms, and those with three or more bedrooms.
Multi-family, high-rise. Structures requiring elevator service. Designs must give particular attention to interior traffic flow, personal security aspects, and community facilities. High-rise configurations may be incorporated into total community environments; design shall provide for good family living.
The Proposal is to indicate those types for which the proposed system is considered applicable. Final decisions as to type and location will be determined in negotiations between the Phase III contractors and the individual government agencies or sponsors groups who will be the ultimate purchasers.
Provide for a total building system, including land, utilities, architectural, structural, foundation, electrical, mechanical and other elements such as appliances and built-in furniture and storage elements. Innovative concepts are encouraged not only for the subsystem elements and various combinations of subsystems, but also for the total system.
3. Architectural Standards
unit ty of the ties
To ensure equitable comparison among proposals, each is to indicate compliance with, or deviations from the draft "Unit Design Criteria," Attachment I. The appearance design should provide for a variety of architectural expressions.
Where the proposed system utilizes generalized standards lower than those set forth in these criteria include the reasoning behind such deviations.
The housing produced under this program must be safe, sanitary, durable and structurally sound. However, it is expected that insofar as practicable, restrictive code requirements will have been waived or modified as necessary to permit utilization of the proposed system. For a basis of comparison, indicate where the proposed system differs from, or is in conflict with, provisions of the following nationallyrecognized model codes:
Building Officials Conference of America (BOCA) Oode
Southern Building Code
National Building Code
National Plumbing Code
The ability of a proposed system to provide for a number of family
Dwelling units are expected to provide facilities for the following functions, among others:
Built-in furniture may be included where it plays a direct part in the total design and efficiency.
In order to reduce maintenance and upkeep costs to the housing occupants, finishes and materials should be selected with regard to minimum maintenance costs as well as initial expenses.
8. Utilization of Labor
System designs must take into consideration the breadth of
Housing to be produced under this Program must be well designed.
Contractors selected under Phase II for construction of prototypes
The environmental design should consider the relationship between individual units and the total complex as to traffic flow, privacy and security, particularly when multifamily and/or mixed housing types are involved.
The environmental design relating to the total complex to its immediate surroundings should provide for communal facilities such as play areas, parking, and traffic flow, while making effective use of the total available land.
The site and its associated environment should be so related to
Innovative concepts regarding site and community environment design, including utility system arrangements, should be considered.
