In the traditional mechanical design of new buildings, the occupancy number is usually over-estimated and results in over-predicted cooling loads and oversized chillers. When building occupancy is low relative to the design phase assumptions, those oversized chillers run inefficiently. To further explore the influence of occupancy on building cooling load design, the occupancy rate of office building is proposed in this paper and investigated with questionnaires.
