We are working on a project for the Navy. It is a facility that acts as a hotel - navy personnel will stay at the facility for a few days until they head to their ship. We consider these transient occupants. Based on my understanding that hotel guest would be consider transient.
On occasion, personnel will stay longer (6 months plus) and we have classified those as residents.
We have received a comment that "residential occupants are any occupants which reside in the project building, regardless of the length of stay"
We are considering providing a narrative to support our numbers but wanted to get some feedback to see if our thought process seems reasonable. This is a renovation so we have actually occupancy data that we are working with.
