The buildings must be of fireproof construction and designed in
accordance with the provisions of the AEC Uniform Design Criteria and the
Idaho Operations Office Engineering Standards. A minimum of architectural
embellishment should be employed in the interest of economy.
B. Site Development
ARBOR will be constructed at the National Reactor Testing
Station near Arco, Idaho, in a new area, designated Area 16. A map show-
ing the exact location of the installation will be prepared by the Architect-
Engineer after the final decision is made by the Laboratory and the AEC
Idaho Operations Office (AEC-IDO).
Detailed contour maps of the area and information on soil and
sub-soil conditions, weather conditions, etc., are available for study at the
AEC Idaho Operations Office (AEC-IDO). A brief geological and meteoro-
logical description of the NRTS site is given in Appendix A. It will be the
responsibility of the Architect-Engineer to secure exact data on soil con-
ditions at the site by means of core drillings (in collaboration with
AEC-IDO) if necessary, or other means, and to establish allowable bearing
values for the soils encountered. The Architect-Engineer shall also pre-
pare drawings and specifications for final grading, roads and walks, fences,
security, buildings, outside lighting, and landscaping. All roads and walks
may be gravel or equivalent construction.
The Architect-Engineer will prepare drawings and specifications
for all site services, as follows:
1. Electric service will require the construction of a substation
at the site and extension of the 13.8-kv service from a point designated by
ANL to the substation. Transformers, switchgear and all necessary equip-
ment are to be included to provide electric service to the facility for all
electrical equipment and lighting.
2. Water supply will be provided by sinking 2 deep wells (ap-
proximately 600 ft) near the elevated storage tank.
3. All necessary drains, sewers, drainage shall be provided.
4. Fire protection services for mobile fire apparatus shall be
provided in accordance with AEC-IDO requirements.
