The Optimum Corridor is a measurement and mathematical method used to establish the load factors for a multi-tenant occupancy. The Optimum Corridor are established with minimum length (example: connecting the exit stairs) for normal egress and ingress to suites or occupant areas and include optimum width (example: 5’). This optimum configuration of length and width is generally established at the time of the buildings first occupancy by the building owner/manager and architect/tenant planner. Once the building has established the Optimum Corridor it is applied on all floor of the building. If floors are not able to comply with the Optimum Corridor configuration due to current tenant or occupant locations, the as-built corridor configuration on those floors will be used for load factor calculations.
