I'm currently working to complete the BOMA calculations on a single storey, multi-tenant Greenhouse and Lab building that has restricted access to tenants only. This building includes corridors, a header house, washrooms, a meeting room, a lunch room, a storage room (in which the tenants can rent shelving within) and many other rooms available for use by all of the tenants of the building.
I'm needing a little clarification when it comes to allocating some of these common spaces due to the single storey nature of the building. Are they BCA's or are they FCA's?
On the same topic, what would I do with, for example, a Mechanical Room? The 1996 Standard seems to put it into both categories based on it servicing the floor (which makes it a FCA), but in this case, the floor is the entire building (which would make it BCA, which I think is the correct way to analyze it in this case).
Thank you in advance,
