FOREWORD
Facilities Criteria (FC) provide functional requirements (i.e., defined by users and operational
needs of a particular facility type) for specific DoD Component(s), and are intended for use with
unified technical requirements published in DoD Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC). FC are
applicable only to the DoD Component(s) indicated in the title, and do not represent unified DoD
requirements. Differences in functional requirements between DoD Components may exist due
to differences in policies and operational needs.
All construction outside of the United States is also governed by Status of Forces Agreements
(SOFA), Host Nation Funded Construction Agreements (HNFA), and in some instances,
Bilateral Infrastructure Agreements (BIA.) Therefore, the acquisition team must ensure
compliance with the most stringent of the FC, the SOFA, the HNFA, and the BIA, as applicable.
Because FC documents are coordinated with unified DoD technical requirements, they form an
element of the DoD UFC system applicable to specific facility types. The UFC system is
prescribed by MIL-STD 3007 and provides planning, design, construction, sustainment,
restoration, and modernization criteria, and applicable to the Military Departments, Defense
Agencies, and the DoD Field Activities. The UFC System also includes technical requirements
and functional requirements for specific facility types, both published as UFC documents and
FC documents.
FC are living documents and will be periodically reviewed, updated, and made available to
users as part of the Services’ responsibility for providing criteria for military construction. HQ
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (HQ USACE), Naval Facilities Engineering Command
(NAVFAC), and the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) are responsible for administration
of the UFC system. Defense agencies should contact the preparing service for document
interpretation and improvements. Technical content is the responsibility of the cognizant DoD
working group. Recommended changes with supporting rationale should be sent to the
respective service proponent office by the following electronic form: Criteria Change Request.
The form is also accessible from the Internet site listed below.
FC are effective upon issuance and are distributed only in electronic media from the following
source: Whole Building Design Guide web site http://dod.wbdg.org/
Refer to UFC 1-200-01, General Building Requirements, for implementation of new issuances
on projects.

Superseding: None.
Description: This FC provides guidelines for evaluating, planning, programming, and
designing an indoor small arms firing range. The information in this FC applies to the
design of all new construction projects, to include additions, alterations, and renovation
projects in the continental United States (CONUS) and outside the continental United
States (OCONUS). It also applies to the procurement of design-build services for the
above-noted projects. Alteration and renovation projects should update existing facilities
to meet the guidance and criteria within budgetary constraints.
Reasons for Document: This FC is the initial release to establish requirements for an
indoor small arms firing range. It defines the criteria for determining appropriately sized,
flexible, cost-optimized, durable, quality-designed facilities on a life cycle basis to
support the mission. The plans presented in this FC are concepts only and are primarily
intended to communicate functional user and adjacency requirements. A thorough
compliance check of all other applicable criteria is required.
Impact: Use of this FC will facilitate and standardize the design of indoor small arms
firing ranges throughout the Air Force. It will provide more complete and consistent
project requirements and expedite the programming and design of facilities and reduce
initial design cost.
Unification Issues: None.

CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION
1-1
GENERAL INFORMATION.
1-1.1
Purpose.
This standard facility prototype design criteria was developed to assist Air Force
programmers to prepare and validate DD Form 1391 requirements and to assist A-E
design professionals with approved project-specific design requirements. It is a source
of basic programming and functional information for a small arms firing range. This
standard is consistent with the Air Force Corporate Facilities Standards (AFCFS),
Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC), and ETL 11-18. This standard, in conjunction with the
AFCFS, defines Air Force expectations for project programming and A-E design
decisions.
1-1.2
Objective.
The standard facility prototype design program defines consistent facility requirements
across the Air Force enterprise to expedite delivery of a facility. This standard was
designed in compliance with AFMAN 32-1084. The objective is to deliver appropriately
sized, flexible, cost-optimized, durable, quality-designed facilities on a life cycle basis to
support the Air Force mission.
1-2
GENERAL BUILDING REQUIREMENTS.
Comply with UFC 1-200-01, which provides applicability of model building codes and
government-unique criteria for typical design disciplines and building systems, as well
as for accessibility, antiterrorism (AT), security, high-performance and sustainability
requirements (comprehensive requirements are detailed in UFC 1-200-02), and safety.
Use this FC in addition to UFC 1-200-01 and the UFCs and government criteria
referenced therein.
1-3
REFERENCES.
Appendix A contains a list of related documents and references to use in conjunction
with this FC. In general, use the latest available issuance of the reference.
1-4
INSTRUCTIONS.
1-4.1
Method.
The standard facility prototype was developed by determining personnel counts,
allowable room sizes, adjacency diagrams between functional spaces, and overall
facility space requirements. The standard facility prototype establishes Air Force criteria
for the facility type. Use the criteria in conjunction with other Air Force ETLs,
departmental publications, and UFCs when programming and designing this facility
type. Supplement this FC with a thorough review by individual program managers and
operations staff.
1
FC 4-179-03F
1 April 2015
1-4.2
Standard Facility Prototype Tools.
This standard facility prototype consists of three parts to be used by programmers and
A-Es:
1. Facilities criteria for standard prototype (this FC)
2. Interactive programming spreadsheet
3. Facility Building Information Modeling (BIM) drawings
1-4.3
Facilities/Design Criteria.
The FC document consists of three primary components:
1. Notional site
2. Composite facility adjacency diagram(s)/composite floor plan(s)
3. Modules with associated room data sheets
1-4.3.1
Notional Site.
The notional site presents a notional site plan diagram that indicates key site
development criteria; it is not a site-specific solution. The information represents the
land requirements to construct this facility and includes associated AT standoff
distances and parking. Utilization of existing or shared parking is allowable and may
reduce the total acreage required for the facility. Adapt the requirements to the specific
site and location and comply with the applicable Installation Development Plan (IDP)
and Area Development Plan (ADP) for facility siting.
1-4.3.2
Composite Floor Plans.
The composite floor plans are conceptual solutions that illustrate functional user and
adjacency requirements. Plan variations may be rotated, flipped, or reversed to fit the
actual site. A thorough compliance check of all other applicable criteria is required even
when using the conceptual solutions provided in this FC.
1-4.3.3
Modules.
Spaces and rooms that are integrally related with a specific functional connection or
operational flow are grouped into a module. Modules and the associated room data
sheets identify specific criteria and additional detail for each functional area of the
facility as outlined in the space program sheets in Appendix B. Information is provided in
a standard presentation and data sheet format and the required space adjacencies and
modules are illustrated in figures.
2
FC 4-179-03F
1 April 2015
The resulting shape of the facility assembled from the facility prototype modules must
provide construction efficiencies obtained from building proportions and overall
configuration. The building footprint shall be organized and well composed. The building
design must comply with the installation facility standards (architectural compatibility
plan) and the AFCFS. Modules shall not be deconstructed or altered except as indicated
in paragraph 1-4.3.4.
1-4.3.4
Module Flexibility/Adjustments.
Utilization of the modules provided is highly recommended to maintain functional
relationships, adjacencies, and allowed program areas. Modules contain fixed attributes
that are essential to functional requirements. Modules may be rotated, flipped, and
reversed to accommodate an overall composition or site issue. When the modules
cannot be arranged to produce a constructible floor plan due to site constraints, their
proportions may be adjusted to create a constructible plan. Manipulating the module
shape must not result in an overall increase in square feet and/or reduce the
functionality of any module or the required adjacencies in the composite plan.
Some modules are linked to space requirements that increase or decrease in size
based on the personnel count and equipment for a particular mission. In these cases,
increase or decrease the size of the module to match the revised scope calculation.
This may sometimes require minor adjustments in other adjacent modules so they
properly fit together to create a constructible facility floor plan. Spaces must comply with
any critical dimensions indicated on module plans. Manipulate as few modules as
possible to create a constructible facility. The resulting composite plan must respect the
established module’s adjacencies and must not exceed the authorized project scope.
1-4.3.5
Room Data Sheets.
Specific requirements for each room, space, or area are provided on room data sheets
that are located following their respective module. Information contained on the data
sheets defines the functional and physical requirements for each of the spaces within
the facility type.
1-4.4
Programming Spreadsheet(s).
This tool is provided in two formats. A PDF programming sheet is provided in Appendix
B primarily as a reference and reflects the baseline standard facility program. The
additional interactive programming sheet provides a tool for planners and programmers.
It allows the input of authorized personnel positions and special purpose spaces.
Updated inputs are automatically calculated and provide new required square footage
for each space and the overall facility size. A link is provided in Appendix B for access
to the interactive programming spreadsheet.
3
FC 4-179-03F
1 April 2015
1-4.5
Facility Drawings – BIM.
This component of the standard facility prototype tools includes both a PDF version and
a Revit version of the modules, and rooms and composite floor and site plans. The
spaces, rooms and modules shown reflect the baseline standard facility program
spreadsheet in Appendix B. The drawings in this FC are exact copies of the larger BIM
drawings and comply with the program scope. The BIM drawings provide a starting
point for the digitization of building data and a starting point in the design and
construction of a facility. BIM drawings are found at the link provided in Appendix B.
1-4.6
Additions and Alterations.
For additions and alterations to existing facilities, use the adjacencies, sizing/scope, and
detailed requirements contained in the site diagrams, module drawings, and room data
sheets to the maximum extent possible. The functionality and adjacency of the modules
are still valid but may require some manipulation to accommodate the existing structure.
Move non-structural walls to the greatest extent possible to open up space in existing
facilities to make them more receptive to the placement of the modules. The planner
and designer shall determine the most efficient means to balance the placement of
modules within existing spaces or as a facility addition.
1-4.7
A-E Design Professionals.
The requirements set forth by this standard are the approved space programming and
functional layouts in accordance with AFCFS. The Air Force Security Forces Center
(AFSFC) must approve variations to functional and operational issues and deviations
from core requirements.

CHAPTER 2 SITE AND OVERALL ADJACENCY
2-1
GENERAL FACILITY OVERVIEW.
The indoor small arms range that houses space to fire and train on weapons use is
typically a one-story structure that works best as a standalone facility. All Air Force
recruits and active personnel must have weapons training, both initial and ongoing
certification. This facility provides a safe space to fire live rounds, train on weapon
assembly, and clean and maintain weapons. It consists of a large, enclosed space for
firing live rounds, student classrooms, weapons cleaning, weapons storage,
administration area, and support spaces. Consult the AFCFS to determine overall
quality standards for the facility type. This standard facility prototype is considered as a
Group II or III hierarchy based on its actual location on the installation.
2-2
FACILITY USERS/OCCUPANTS.
The facility users are as follows:
•
Able-bodied active duty, National Guard, and Reserve military personnel
•
Able-bodied DOD civilians, contractors, and others as authorized
•
Non-range, common areas shall be ABA compliant
2-3
SIZE DETERMINANTS.
The indoor small arms firing range size is generally driven by the installation’s
authorized population and mission. The 21-lane facility has been designated as
standard.
2-3.1
Indoor Small Arms Firing Range Size.
Indoor small arms firing range sizes vary from 14-lane up to 56-lane facilities. For the
purpose of this planning document, the minimum to maximum sizes were analyzed:
2-4
•
Small, 14 lanes
•
Standard, 21 lanes
•
Large, 28 to 56 lanes (in increments of 7)
OPERATIONAL ASPECTS.
The hours of operation are driven by user and mission requirements.

2-5
NOTIONAL SITE.
The site diagram represents a notional layout to reflect site development
requirements/criteria only. It is not an actual site design. Siting must comply with the
IDP and ADP.
2-6
LOCATION DETERMINANTS (SITE SELECTION) OR SITE LOCATION
AND ORIENTATION.
Several factors determine the most appropriate and cost-effective location for an indoor
small arms firing range. The availability and capacity of required utilities and the
mass/scale of the facility relative to adjacent structures and noise issues shall be
analyzed.
2-6.1
Access.
The indoor small arms firing range’s ideal location is in the vicinity of the main Security
Forces Squadron facility. Locate the facility with main road access and away from any
active pedestrian or populated areas. Provide parking and access drives as close to the
facility as possible while complying with AT requirements in UFC 4-010-01. Separate
service drives from privately owned vehicle (POV) parking.

COMPOSITE FACILITY ADJACENCY.
The space program for the indoor small arms firing range facilities is developed based
upon the annual small arms qualification training requirements and authorized manning
of the base, as well as historical data from the Air Force Security Forces Center
(AFSFC).
The space program developed through the base planning team generally represents the
maximum space allowed. The final space program for a new indoor small arms firing
range will need to be carefully determined by installation representatives and the criteria
in this FC. Additional information is found in Appendix B.
The required space adjacencies are illustrated in Figure 2-2. All program spaces are
assigned a module designator. Spaces that must be located next to each other or share
an important operational flow are grouped into one module with the intent that the
module will remain intact during final design (although it may slightly change shape).
Composite plans represent conceptual solutions for indoor small arms range project
requirements. These composite facility plans convey an AFSFC-approved solution. The
building shape may be adjusted in response to site requirements or unusual or specific
installation issues if approved in accordance with the procedures in Chapter I. See
Appendix B for conceptual facility floor plans. Three concept plans and the related BIM
drawings are included in Appendix B.

FC 4-179-03F

CHAPTER 4 TECHNICAL CRITERIA
4-1
GENERAL.
Comply with UFC 1-200-01, which provides the applicability of model building codes
and government-unique criteria for typical design disciplines and building systems, as
well as for accessibility, AT, security, high-performance and sustainability requirements
(comprehensive requirements are detailed in UFC 1-200-02), and safety. Use this FC in
addition to UFC 1-200-01 and the UFCs and government criteria referenced therein.
Use ETL 11-18 for specific indoor small arms firing range requirements.
4-2
STRUCTURE.
4-2.1
Foundation.
The foundation design and type is site specific and must be designed based on
geotechnical recommendations provided by a licensed geotechnical engineer
knowledgeable of the local conditions.
4-2.2
Superstructure.
Provide clear spans for the firing range and target systems. Use pre-engineered
components for superstructure framing, where feasible. The superstructure must
support the bullet deflector plates/baffle system and other equipment (e.g., bullet trap).
Camber the roof framing for the firing range to remain flat under super-imposed dead
loads.
Provide hardened ceilings for the arms/ammunition storage rooms.
A perimeter steel structure to support the roof framing and CMU or concrete walls may
be used for ease of construction and local parameters.
The framing for the roof structure of the firing range may be one of the following two
options:
•
Roof joists spanning the full distance from the front to the back of the range with
no intermediate supports. Do not span side to side because it limits expansion.
•
Along the firing line (barricade) there may be steel columns (dividing the lanes)
supporting steel girders spanning the width of the firing range. This line of girders
could support open web bar joists spanning from the girder to the front wall
(about 25 feet [7.6 meters]) on one side and to the back wall (about 115 feet [35
meters]) on the other side.
41
FC 4-179-03F
1 April 2015
4-3
EXTERIOR DESIGN.
In general, the building’s image, theme, and fixtures must be consistent with the
programs offered and the architecture established on base. Reflect the local
geographical and cultural environment in the design and comply with AFCFS and
installation architectural standards. Provide a visually attractive, safe, and welcoming
appearance. Consider grouping high bay spaces together. Do not allow the building
massing to dominate or overwhelm surrounding structures.
4-3.1
Entrances/Exits.
Entries into the firing range must be limited and secured for safety. Entries to the range
are not to be provided downrange of the firing line. Provide warning lights to signal that
live rounds are being fired within the range.
4-3.2
Doors and Windows.
Limit windows to the queuing room, classroom, administrative areas, break room, and
corridor. Use aluminum or hollow metal frames and doors. Mitigate glare and direct
sunlight in activity spaces.
4-4
INTERIOR DESIGN.
4-4.1
Interior Construction.
Personnel will be handling weapons that bump against walls and trim. Provide durable,
low-maintenance construction materials and do not use hollow-core wood doors. All
interior glass must be tempered safety glass and mirrors must be made of breakresistant materials.
Provide counters, casework, and cabinets of high-quality and durable construction.
Provide countertops of solid surface/solid composite plastics only or stainless steel.
4-4.2
Finishes.
Provide finishes that are compatible with the intended uses and are highly durable and
low maintenance. They must meet the requirements listed in NFPA 101. Also
coordinate the interior design with the Air Force Interior Design Standards, major
command and installation design standards, and ETL 07-4. Personnel with weapons
and ammunition often bump and scrape walls, so provide heavy-duty, durable finishes.
Provide acoustical treatment to minimize sound reverberations and intensity within the
indoor small arms firing range.
4-4.3
Window Treatments.
Include window treatments (shading systems) as an integral part of the construction
contract in administrative areas. Dual fabric solar roller shade systems with manual roll
42
FC 4-179-03F
1 April 2015
chain operation are recommended. Analyze solar conditions when selecting a window
treatment. Window treatments must provide full coverage to reduce light leakage. Any
window treatment must be flame-resistant and commercial quality.
4-5
SERVICES.
4-5.1
Plumbing.
Design domestic hot and cold water, sanitary and storm drainage, compressed air,
propane, fuel oil, or natural gas systems to meet the requirements of UFC 3-420-01 and
local installation standards.
The weapons maintenance and student weapons cleaning rooms shall each require
emergency eyewash. Compressed air shall be provided in the student weapons
cleaning room.
4-5.2
Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC).
Design the HVAC system to meet the requirements of UFC 3-410-01, ETL 04-3, and
ETL 11-18.
The air supply system for the firing range must ensure a safe environment for
participants by delivering air at the firing line and exhausting air at the target end. Air
must travel in a laminar fashion at 75 fpm (±15 fpm) across the firing line to prevent
powder residue from settling. Provide uniform, unidirectional laminar airflow across the
firing line by installing a perforated air distribution plenum, radial plenum, or other
distribution device along the rear wall. For energy conservation, do not heat or cool
supply air to the range. However, for extremely cold environments, radiant heat may be
provided above the firing platform. In extremely hot environments, active (refrigerated)
or passive (evaporative) cooling systems capable of maintaining the spaces at or below
an ASHRAE effective maximum temperature of 93 °F may be used. Exhaust air must be
provided at the end of the indoor small arms firing range, behind the bullet trap, and
shall maintain 3 to 7 percent negative pressure on the range. Exhaust fan controls must
be interlocked with the supply fan to ensure simultaneous operation. Re-circulation of
range air is not permitted and exhaust air discharge from the range and bullet trap shall
meet local, state, and federal requirements. The range control booth shall maintain
positive pressure relative to the indoor small arms firing range.
The HVAC system for the weapons cleaning area, ammunition storage area, and
weapons maintenance area must be designed for safe operations with chemicals and
munitions. Provide exhaust ventilation for the weapons maintenance shop, range
supplies, student weapons cleaning room, laundry, janitor closet, and restrooms.
Exhaust makeup air may be transferred from adjacent spaces (not from firing range),
provided adequate ventilation is supplied to prevent negative air pressure in relation to
the outside. Provide occupancy sensors to control all exhaust fans. Weapons and
ammunition storage areas must maintain relative humidity below 65 percent.

4-5.3
Fire Protection and Life Safety.
Refer to UFC 1-200-01 to determine the applicable design codes and standards for all
building and life safety features for the facility. UFC 1-200-01 references UFC 3-600-01
and will be utilized to determine the passive fire protection features of the facility, such
as building height and area, construction type, egress limitations, etc., as well as the
active fire protection features of the facility, including fire detection, fire alarm, fire
suppression, etc.
ETL 11-18 provides specific Air Force design and construction criteria for small arms
ranges and shall take precedence over all other design standards where conflicts exist
for fire protection requirements.
4-5.4
Electrical.
Provide electric service and distribution equipment, wiring receptacles and grounding,
interior and exterior lighting and control, emergency lighting, telephone, communication
systems, fire alarm, other health and safety alarms, and intrusion systems in
accordance with NFPA 70, UFC 3-520-01, ETL 11-18, and installation design
requirements. Include a connection capability for a portable standby generator.
See the latest edition of Electric Current Abroad to determine voltages and cycles in
overseas locations. Service grounding system and all wiring methods must meet current
NFPA 70 requirements. All service equipment must be Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
listed. Alternately, published proof from an approved independent testing laboratory
may be provided.
4-5.4.1
Lighting.
Provide lighting and control systems throughout the facility in accordance with UFC 3530-01 and ETL 11-18. Pay particular attention to issues such as glare, heat
generation, and impact protection for the fixtures in the indoor small arms firing range.
Provide a control system to highlight target lines at the 3, 7, 10, 15, and 25 meter lines
and to simulate night or daylight.
Provide a flashing light system to simulate a police car light bar. Provide “range in use”
warning lights.
4-5.4.2
Communications and Data.
Telephone and data outlets may be independent of each other or combined into a single
junction box. Also consider wireless audio, video, and data installations to add flexibility.
If the hard-wired connections can be combined into a single junction box then the cover
plate to that junction box must allow for multiple connections. In some unique situations,
the CATV/internal video connection can also be combined into a single junction box with
the appropriate cover plate.
44
FC 4-179-03F
1 April 2015
Identify the technical design requirements for the CCTV system with the base user and
AFSFC.
4-5.4.3
Alarm Systems.
Provisions for alarm systems must be identified during the planning/programming
process. Provide an alarm system to warn personnel that live fire is in progress and/or if
any downrange doors are open. Provide an intrusion detection alarm system to protect
vault arms and ammunition.
4-6
SITE DESIGN AND ORGANIZATION.
4-6.1
Parking and Access Drives.
Provide parking for both staff and patrons with the appropriate access drives. Consider
bicycle racks near the facility entrance in a secure location. Refer to AFH 32-1084,
paragraph 20.2.2.2, and note 1 of Table 20.2. For landscaping and site pavements refer
to UFC 4-010-01, paragraph 4-8, for AT standoff distances and access road
requirements.
4-6.2
Service Drive.
The size of required service vehicles should be verified by the designer prior to planning
the service access areas. Provide a back-up spur for dead-end and service drives that
exceed 100 feet (30 meters) in length for receiving area, garbage dumpster/storage
(indoor or outdoor), mechanical room, and service entry, if one is designated. Provide a
service vehicle apron and consolidate service access when possible.
4-6.3
General Site Lighting.
Provide exterior “range in use” flashing red indicator lighting as recommended by ETL
11-18 for facilities where night operations are possible.
4-7
BARRIER-FREE DESIGN REQUIREMENTS.
Refer to UFC 1-200-01 for barrier-free design requirements.
Indoor small arms firing range activities will be for able-bodied personnel only. Visitors
with physical disabilities will be allowed as observers but not participants.
4-8
ANTITERRORISM.
Refer to UFC 4-020-01 for AT requirements. The firing range portion of the building may
be classified as low occupancy due to the personnel density of more than 430 SF/PN,
which would exempt the firing range from all UFC 4-010-01 provisions.
