When is a multiple-occupancy building permitted?

(1) multiple-occupancy structures with no adequate area for supply equipment accessible to all occupants; or (2) a building or other structure large enough to require two or more supplies. Capacity requirements (C). Extra services are authorized. For example, if one toilet is located in each of three apartments and each apartment has its own water source, then six people can live there.

In addition, if the supply of water is not sufficient for more than five people, a multiple-occupancy permit is not required. However'the presence of a second supply line for backup purposes makes this a seven-person household. "'

The following examples show how the extra person or persons affect the capacity of the structure:

Supply line = 15 gallons per minute (gpm) average flow

Two-bedroom apartment = 5 people plus bed = 3 baths x 2 bedrooms x 30 inches of water depth = 90 inches of water depth

One-bedroom apartment = 3 people plus bed = 3 baths x 1 bedroom x 30 inches of water depth = 60 inches of water depth

Toilets usually flush at least 25 gallons per flush (gpf), so each additional person requires an increase of 100 percent in supply size.

When are additional services allowed in a building?

(2) a building or other structure large enough to require two or more supply Capacity requirements (C). (1) When the required capacity exceeds 2,000A and the supply voltage is 600V or less. The supplier must be licensed by the State agency in charge of licensing electric utilities.

In other words, an extra service can be added to an existing circuit if the total load on the circuit exceeds 2KW and the supply voltage is at least 600V. If these conditions are met, then the provider of the extra service must be an electrical utility company - in this case, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. There is no charge for adding an extra service unless it requires another permit. No permit is needed if you simply want to add another light bulb to your lamp string.

The BSP does not issue permits for individual consumers who wish to connect to the electricity grid. Only power companies that are licensed by the BSP to provide electricity in the Philippines can do so. If you have a separate meter for each household appliance or device, then you will need to discuss with your electricity provider how to connect them up correctly. They should be able to help guide you through the process.

What are the occupancy requirements for a single-family home?

A family of related persons plus up to four unrelated roomers may occupy any owner-occupied residential unit (or a maximum of five unrelated individuals). If the above-mentioned housing units are in structures with two or more dwelling units, they are not single-family and must meet the following space requirements: at least one bedroom with a private bathroom for each member of the family. A garage or other outbuilding used only as a carport can be shared among the occupants.

If you have a large family or if you have roommates but still need a single-family home, see if your friends will let you use their space for rent. This way you won't have to pay for extra bedrooms in your own house.

The minimum square footage for a single-family home is 1,200 square feet. The majority of homes sold in cities across the country fall into this category. However, some towns require larger homes due to increased safety concerns for children. In these cases, families might be able to find homes with 2,400 or even 2,800 square feet of space.

In addition to size, the type of construction also affects the cost of a single-family home. Frame houses built before 1990 are typically more affordable than those constructed after that time. Also, houses on large lots tend to be more expensive than those on smaller plots.

Does occupancy include staff?

The number of people authorized in a building at one time is determined by the floor space and purpose of the structure, much as the number of people permitted in a building is determined by the means of escape (exit pathways). Your overall occupant load should comprise both employees and commercial clients. If you have a large office building with 20,000 square feet of space, then you should have a population of 200 people. If most of that space is empty, however, then you are underoccupied.

If you have a large retail store with six rooms and each room has a maximum capacity of 100 people, then you should have a population of 600 people. However, if only two rooms are being used, then you are underoccupied.

In addition to calculating occupancy for determining insurance rates, occupancy is also important for billing purposes. If your rental agreement includes a clause stating that you will be charged based on a certain percentage of capacity, then it makes sense that they would want to know how many people are using the space so they can accurately calculate your bill.

Finally, occupancy is important when trying to determine the value of a lease. If you have a large office building and only three out of twenty offices are occupied, then you can assume that the rest of the space is still available or else there would be no point in having more than three offices.
