Q: A: ### Quick Answer

To calculate a room's maximum occupancy, determine factors such as the area of the room, the available space in the room, the number of useful exits and the height of the ceiling. Calculate a basic estimation of a room's maximum occupancy by dividing the available floor space in square feet by 36.

Know More**Calculate the area of the room**Measure the width and length of the room in feet to calculate the area of the room. Multiply these two values to determine the area of the room in square feet.

**Calculate the approximate floor space available**To calculate the approximate value of available floor space, find the approximate value of the space that's being obstructed by fixed structures, such as columns and pieces of furniture. Subtract this value from the area of the room to get an approximation of the floor space that is available for occupancy.

**Divide the available floor space by 36**Divide the available floor space by 36 to get an approximation of the maximum occupancy of the room. The number 36 comes from the notion that every person should be allotted a minimum space of 6 feet of length and width, which means that the recommended space that one person should have is equal to 36 square feet.

- Q:
## How do you calculate occupancy rate?

A:

Full Answer >**To calculate occupancy rate, divide the time that a unit was rented out by the time the unit was available for rent.**Another option is to divide the total number of units that are rented out by the total number of units.Filed Under: - Q:
## How do you calculate call center occupancy?

A:To calculate call center occupancy, add the talk time, hold time and wrap time together. Divide that total by the sum of the talk time, hold time, wrap time and available time. This will provide the occupancy, or the amount of time the operator was occupied with a customer.

## How do you read room measurements?

A:

Full Answer >**Room measurements can be read using a length measuring tape.**The area of a rectangular shaped room can be calculated by multiplying the length by the width of the room. The perimeter can be calculated by adding the length and width of the room.Filed Under: - Q:
## How do you figure square footage of a room?

A:

Full Answer >**Square footage of a room is a measurement of area, so calculating it requires the length of the room and the width.**By placing a tape measure at the edge of one wall and measuring a perfectly straight line to the opposite wall, a measurement can be obtained.Filed Under:
