Building Service Area in Single Tenant Building

Chris Townsend
April 18, 2016

I have a building owner that has requested RSF for a multistory building. The building was previously calculated for a multi-tenant scenario and is now being considered for a single tenant scenario. Would ground floor elevator lobby areas that also provide egress for stair cores still be considered Building Service Areas when there is only a single tenant in the building?

Hi Chris,

If the BOMA 2010 Office Standard is going to be used in a single tenant scenario, then it is calculated exactly the same as if it was a multi-tenant. Therefore, all of the ground floor lobby areas would remain as Building Service Area. Of course, 100% of the Building Service Areas will be allocated to the single tenant.
