Capped load factor

Ewa Szczepanska-Jankowska

In method A of measurement what is CAPPED LOAD FACTOR? How can I get it? Is it given by the owner of the building (I mean the MARKET LOAD FACTOR that is related to the capped load factor) or should I get it from somewhere? Ive just started measuring areas according to BOMA 2010 and have some problems. I will be grateful for your help.

Hi Ewa,

The Capped Load Factor is an arbitrary figure that is usually set by the property owner or leasing manager, usually in response to a Load Factor (A or B) that is seen as too high from a marketing point of view. The most important thing to remember is that the Capped Load Factor must always be lower than the actual, calculated Load Factor.
