Baseline Characteristics of the 2002-2004 Nonresidential Sector: Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington Technical Memorandum

The purpose of this technical memo is to describe the characteristics of two commercial new construction building type categories, “Assembly” and “Other” (A&O), that were not included in NEEA’s 2002-04 Non-Residential Baseline Study.  NEEA decided to remove them from the study to increase the sampling efficiency of building types of specific interest to both regional stakeholders and NEEA.  Removing them lowered the number of buildings in the study sampling frame by 19%, thereby increasing the number of buildings selected in the remaining building type categories.  It lowered the square footage in the sampling frame by only 12%, suggesting that these buildings were by and large smaller than the remaining population.
