2-188.8.131.52 The janitorial, facility maintenance, support and similar spaces should be
distributed throughout the building. The special training spaces should be located near
spaces similar in function, or near the specific Tenants that utilize them most. In some
cases, such as a band room, the spaces may function best if they can be somewhat
isolated from other functions. Tenant preferences should always be considered, along
with overall flexibility.
2-184.108.40.206 The training center typically functions efficiently when organized around a
central lobby space, so that circulation distances are minimized. The elevator and a
stair should be adjacent to the lobby in multistory training centers.
2-220.127.116.11.1 Some of the administrative spaces should be adjacent
to the lobby. There is no receptionist, so a full-time office or the
recruiting/retention office should be located to monitor the lobby.
2-18.104.22.168.2 Full-time offices should be clustered around unit
common space, and located on exterior walls to allow windows to
the extent possible. Full-time offices that cannot be placed around
the unit common should generally be located on main corridors.
Multiple, smaller unit commons areas with offices surrounding
them are typically preferable to a single, large unit common, for
reasons of flexibility. It is preferable that all administrative areas
are within 50 feet (15 meters) of a restroom.
Exclusive offices require the same adjacencies as full-time offices.
