Parking garage

Are parking garage stairs calculated as a vertical penetration or are they just considered into the parking garage calculation?

Parking garage stairs are included in Major Vertical Penetrations. Keep in mind that the lowest level of the stairs should be allocated to Building Service Area under BOMA 2017.
