Hi, Kim,

It looks like you’re on the right track with your FTE calculations. For transient occupants (students, customers, visitors, delivery people, etc.) you would use the number of transients that occupy your building during your peak period.

It’s important that you carefully review the 2009 LEED Reference Guide as you’re completing your submittal templates. The Reference Guide offers you very detailed information on how to correctly use your FTE numbers to complete the template’s calculations.

For more information check out “Make Calculating FTEs Less Confusing” at www.SucceedAtLEED.com.

Good luck with your LEED project!
