We have measured and calculated an office building per the BOMA 2010 Method B standard.
Floors 4-10 are being converted to a Hotel. Within these floors will be several areas that only services the Hotel. Each Hotel Floor has their own circulation areas based on the hotel room layout.
Can you advise, which standard would apply best to the revised calculations and new chart?
We were examining the mixed used standard, but a Hotel is not specifically called out.

The mixed-Use standard does support a hotel as a use component - see the definitions for "use" and "use component" in that standard. The Mixed-Use Standard is dependent on using the BOMA 2009 Gross Areas Standard, which can be applied to any building type, so the Mixed-Use Standard may be applied to any building type as well. When the building is comprised of Office Use as well, there are some important considerations when applying Mixed-Use Common Area (MUCA) properly and allocating proportionately to the Office-Use component under the BOMA 2010 Office Standard.
