The scope of design services for this project is limited to: Planning, Design, and Construction Document preparation for development of new facilities at Nome Creek Administrative Site, Nome Creek, Alaska. Scope of Work for each discipline is as follows:
Survey includes the understanding that the site survey has been completed by BLM and that the data is available and usable for design. We also understand that USKH’s scope includes adapting the BLM survey and creating the survey control. USKH will provide surveying for the purposes of supporting the flood hazard/hydrological efforts, as the available data is not tied into the Nome Creek drainage system.
Civil engineering will include grading and drainage design, well design, as well as water and sewer (vault toilet) permitting requirement. Other items include:
• Due to the conceptual design provided by the BLM, a civil engineering site visit is not anticipated.
• Though we had hoped to use some of the Troublesome Creek design documents for this project, the design is not transferable.
Environmental scope of work includes a flood hazard study, and wetlands delineation may need to be completed in support of the BLM’s environmental Assessment (EA).
Architectural will specify a standard vault-type toilet, and will collaborate with structural and civil for correct support specifications. Other items include:
• The architects will attend review conferences, prepare minutes, and distribute them to the entire team.
• A final design analysis will be included
• Note that “Universal Access” is required, ie, ADA. The cabins are designated to be supported on post and pad foundation which does pose some challenges with regard to ramp installations, canopy design, etc. Likewise, the front porches will need to be designed to accommodate differently-abled individuals.
Structural will support architectural on the cabin design and utilize the International Log Building Association guiding principles for design.
Mechanical engineering will be limited to plumbing systems. Ventilation will be provided via operable windows.
Electrical engineering will be limited to design of photovoltaic (PV) system and limited distribution dependant on the size of PV that’s affordable under the project budget.
