The process used to derive the new TEMF Army Standard and its companion Army Standard Design is used by the Army Staff as the template for all mission-based facility standardization.
The Combat Readiness Support Team and the Army Corps of Engineers TEMF Center of Standardization determined the key functions and relationships between the table of organization and equipment (TOE) and table of distribution and allowances (TDA) units using TEMFs and the relationship between maintenance operations and TEMF design and construction.
The Army Facility Design Team, cochaired by the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-4, Field Maintenance Division and the Office of the Assistant Chief of Stall' for Installation Management, acts as the facilitator and adjudicator of TEMF redesign.
In order for a unit to maintain wartime capabilities, maintenance and repair functions are required for TEMF facilities.
This assumption was based on communications with TEMF operation engineers about typical TEMF operation and space use.
TSCs following these design criteria were modeled on the south facade of the TEMF, feeding into the ventilation system of the repair bays and vehicle corridor.
The project thus first compared the site EUI of the energy-efficient models to a baseline TEMF model for each climate zone to achieve the maximum site energy savings.
EEMs considered for the TEMF were analyzed individually, and EEMs with the highest energy savings were included in a low-energy "package" for each climate zone (Package 1).
The energy systems required in a TEMF provide power for tools, lighting, heating, and ventilation.
A TEMF includes normal maintenance operations where lubricating oils are changed, damaged body parts are replaced, brakes are changed and adjusted, engines are tuned, and transmissions are adjusted.
Only a few systems can capture exhaust fumes from moving vehicles, but they are rarely specified for TEMF operations.
Many TEMF buildings have no or inadequate general ventilation.
