Abstract : The procedure for designing facilities for Army Ammunition Plants should be based on increased safety, reduced maintenance, reduced energy consumption, and reduced costs. The primary objective for the development of the Architectural Standard Details is to enhance safety and achieve uniformity of design. The other benefits obtained are possible by-products. Black and Veatch was engaged to develop details for use in design and construction of buildings in which nitroglycerin, nitrocellulose, and single base and multibase propellants are manufactured. This paper discusses the objectives, background, construction design requirements, use of standard details, typical details, and the procedure for making future changes to conform to advances in technology, architectural practice, or changes required by actual field performance of certain standard details.
