Our project is to build a new hotel and add an exhbit hall to an existing convention center and to add more meeting rooms and ballrooms.
Based on previous CIRs we are ruling out the hotel guests from the Bike rack calcs.
The total users of the meeting spaces during peak (which I assume is the code maximum at all the meeting spaces without taking any diversities for double count of the occupant) is 8,484 people. Say we have 200 FTE staff at both the hotel and the meeting spaces, then our total building user count for the bike rack calc is 8,684 people. This would require 433 bike racks at 5%. 433 bike racks seems excessive. How do we take into account that most of the meeting space users will be the hotel guests?
In general, how do heavy transient user projects like convention centers treat the bike rack calculations?
