The objective of this research is to provide data to the Technical Committee on Mercantile and Business Occupancies (BLD/SAF-MER) to either support the current occupant load factor of 100 sq. ft. or to justify the need for multiple occupant load factors for business use areas. Also, the project will answer whether a new singular business occupant load standard is needed and/or how the current business occupant load should be categorized and why such categories within the general business occupant load category are needed.
