Can I determine a room capacity for a classroom or lab by just walking in and measuring the room's square footage and using a load factor?
Some of our classrooms have so many desks it looks like a cattle car going to slaughter. I'd like to be able to go room to room and say, "This is the maximum allowable seats...". Appreciate any simple tips for a simple guy. Thanks.
