Hi all,

I have a question regarding the allocation of bicycle storage spaces and shower facilities for projects with multiple buildings. A similar question has been asked before (here), so I suppose this post is for clarification and to extend the question to shower facilities.

I am working on a CS project with 3 warehouses - A, B, and C - that is pursing the campus approach. Using Appendix 2, I first estimated the employee and visitor counts for each building:

A: 387 employees, 0 peak visitors

B: 126, 0

C: 125, 0

Total: 638, 0

When I calculated bicycle storage and shower requirements for the whole project using 638 employees, I got the following:

No. short-term storage spaces = MAX(4*3 bldgs, 0*2.5%) = 12

No. long-term storage spaces = MAX(4*3 bldgs, 638*5%) = 32

No. shower facilities = 1 + (638-100)/150 = 5

However, when I calculated bicycle storage and shower requirements individually for each building using their respective occupancies and added them together, I got the following:

Building A: Short-term spaces: 4; long-term spaces: 20; shower facilities: 3

Building B: Short-term spaces: 4; long-term spaces: 7; shower facilities: 2

Building B: Short-term spaces: 4; long-term spaces: 7; shower facilities: 2

Total: Short-term spaces: 12; long-term spaces: 34; shower facilities: 7

As these results are obviously different from what I got using the first approach, I am wondering which of the following is correct:

OPTION 1: Based on calculations for the whole project (approach #1), provide 12 short-term spaces, 32 long-term spaces, and 5 shower facilities

• If this is the correct option to pursue, how should I allocate the storage spaces and storage facilities between the buildings? I suppose that each building need to satisfy its own requirement in terms of bicycle storage spaces, and for shower facilities, they should simply be divided between the buildings as evenly as possible.

OPTION 2: Based on calculations for each individual building (approach #2), provide 12 short-term spaces, 34 long-term spaces, and 7 shower facilities

• In this case, each building would be allocated their respective numbers of bicycle storage spaces and shower facilities, calculated above.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Best,

James
