Facility Hierarchy

Air Force Corporate Standards

Reinforce a facility hierarchy by designating a Facility Group number from the following section and provide appropriate architectural features, materials and detail for each group. Organize facilities into Groups 1, 2, 3 or 4. Materials and finishes in Group 1 facilities may be of higher visual quality than those in Group 2 facilities. Generally maintain higher durability in Group 3 facilities that are industrial in nature. Group 4 (family housing) systems, materials and finishes must respond to their residential use.

Relate durability of materials and refinement of detailing to a building’s type, operations and prominence on an installation. Design facilities to withstand their operations and to allow for multiple adaptations in use over time.

Non-appropriated Fund (NAF) projects must comply with AFI 32-1022 and AFI 34-205.
