scope:

1.1 This classification contains pairs of scales 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 locating the building and finding the way inside the building.

1.2 Within that aspect of serviceability, each pair of scales, shown in Figs. 1-6, are for classifying one topic of serviceability. Each paragraph in an Occupant Requirement Scale (see Figs. 1-6) summarizes one level of serviceability on that topic, which occupants might require. The matching entry in the Facility Rating Scale (see Figs. 1-6) 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.

FIG. 1 Scale A.14.1 for Public Transportation (Urban Sites)

FIG. 2 Scale A.14.2 for Staff Visits to Other Offices

FIG. 3 Scale A.14.3 for Vehicular Entry and Parking

FIG. 3 Scale A.14.3 for Vehicular Entry and Parking (continued)

FIG. 4 Scale A.14.4 for Wayfinding to Building and Lobby

FIG. 4 Scale A.14.4 for Wayfinding to Building and Lobby (continued)

FIG. 5 Scale A.14.5 for Capacity of Internal Movement Systems

FIG. 5 Scale A.14.5 for Capacity of Internal Movement Systems (continued)

FIG. 6 Scale A.14.6 for Public Circulation and Wayfinding in Building

FIG. 6 Scale A.14.6 for Public Circulation and Wayfinding in Building (continued)

1.3 The entries in the Facility Rating Scale (see Figs. 1-6) 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.

1.4 This 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.

1.5 This 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 E2334. The scales in this classification are complimentary to and compatible with Practice E2334. Each requires the other.

1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.7 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
