How to calculate load factor on a per tenant basis for a commercial office space?
Asked 3 months ago
Hi, I manage an office building and I want to understand if the space is being used efficiently and if the rental income is optimized for each tenant. I’d like clarification on how to calculate the load factor on a per-tenant basis, as our tenants occupy different spaces with different layouts and configurations. Can anyone provide guidance on this? Many thanks.

To find the load factor, you’ll need two figures: The tenant's usable square footage and the entire building's rentable square footage. The basic method to calculate the load factor involves simply dividing the two figures.
For example, if your building has 10,000 square feet of space, of which one tenant uses 1,000 square feet, the load factor for that tenant would be 10.
By calculating the load factor for each tenant, you can identify how much space they occupy versus the space available. POC Systems allows you to visualize load factors graphically.
