Choosing Sites with Existing Structures
One of the most important things to consider about building classifications is that buildings should be viewed in context and relative to other buildings within the sub-market; a Class A building in one market may be a Class B building in another.
There is no International Standard for Classifying Buildings
If there was a more scientific method for classifying buildings though, some of the building characteristics which could be used to compare and rank buildings would be as follows:
- HVAC Capacity
- Elevator quantity and speed
- Backup Power
- Security and life safety infrastructure
- Ceiling heights
- Floor load capacity
- Access (freeway, public transportation)
- Construction, Common Area Improvements
- Nearby and/or on-site amenities (dry cleaning, restaurants, ATM, etc.)
