8. Operating Manuals
The Architect-Engineer shall prepare and supply 50 copies
of a plant operation and maintenance manual. Information pertaining to the
reactor operation will be supplied by the Laboratory for integration into the
C. Joint Laboratory and Architect-Engineer Effort
In general, the joint efforts of the Laboratory and Architect-
Engineer shall be applied wherever the respective types of experience
peculiar to the two organizations can be combined to accomplish the job
in the most efficient manner. The Architect-Engineer shall execute the
detailed design, with the Laboratory supplying a large portion of the
It is emphasized that the instrumentation of the ARBOR
Facility is rather complex. Most of the instrumentation must be viewed
and designed as an integral system. As completion of the instrumentation
design is approached, the Architect-Engineer will be required to prepare
two types of diagrams covering the entire instrumentation system: (1) a
type suitable for construction purposes; and (2) a type suitable to enable
ready comprehension of the manner of system functioning, and to facili-
tate system repair and maintenance. These drawings, along with flow
charts, shall be used for operator instruction also. In addition, the
Architect-Engineer will be required to prepare comprehensive and de-
tailed special diagrams, with suitable descriptions, of the safety instrumen-
