Thank you Adam.
So to clarify; this separate building (Restaurant and DayCare) cannot be analyzed using the Office Standards that we used for the office building on the same property? Do we need to purchase a separate standard (MixedUsed or Retail?)
My company recently executed a 2010 BOMA Office Buildings study for a 29 floor office building and the results that went to the client were much lower than the numbers they received for a 1996 BOMA study. Is there a clear explanation as to why this could happen to explain to the client?
There is also a smaller building on the property owned by the same landlord that they want to include in their calculations. It is not an office building; there is a basement and two floors dedicated to a restaurant with an outdoor eating patio on level one. The third floor is dedicated to a daycare and then the roof has an unenclosed playground as well as unenclosed building service spaces. How is this roof level calculated into the space. Furthermore, does this building have to be classified with a separate standard, such as Mixed Use? Or is it classified as additional space to the office building?
