    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This classification covers matched sets of scales (see Figs. 1-24) for classifying an aspect of the serviceability of an office facility, that is, the capability of an office facility to meet certain possible requirements for structure and building envelope.

    1.2Within that aspect of serviceability, each matched set of scales (see Figs. 1-24) is for classifying one topic of serviceability. Each topic is typically broken down into two more demand functions and supply features. Each paragraph in an Occupant Requirement Scale summarizes one level of serviceability on that function, which occupants might require. The matching entry in the Facility Rating Scale is a translation of the requirement into a description of certain features of a facility which, taken in combination, indicate that the facility is likely to meet that level of required serviceability.

    1.3The entries in the Facility Rating Scale (see Figs. 1-24) are indicative and not comprehensive. They are for quick scanning, to estimate approximately, quickly, and economically, how well an office facility is likely to meet the needs of one or another type of occupant group, over time. The entries are not for measuring, knowing, or evaluating how an office facility is performing.

    1.4This classification can be used to estimate the level of serviceability of an existing facility. It can also be used to estimate the serviceability of a facility that has been planned but not yet built, such as one for which single-line drawings and outline specifications have been prepared.

    1.5This classification indicates what would cause a facility to be rated at a certain level of serviceability, but does not state how to conduct a serviceability rating nor how to assign a serviceability score. That information is found in Practice E1679. The scales in Figs. 1-24 are complimentary to and compatible with Practice E1679. Each requires the other.

    1.6The scales are intended to identify the levels of various requirements unique to a particular user, and the serviceability (capability) of a building to meet those requirements. The scales thus supplement rather than include code requirements. It remains the responsibility of designers, builders, and building managers to meet applicable code requirements relative to their respective roles in facility design, construction, and ongoing management.

    1.7The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
