What types of properties are "Worship Facilities?" Follow

The "Worship Facility" Property Type applies only to properties whose overall use is primarily a place of worship and which contain 4,000 permanent seats or fewer.  Examples include churches, temples, mosques, synagogues, and meetinghouses.

If you have a worship facility that shares the grounds with an associated K-12 school, or a home for the clergy, or a community center, those properties must be entered and benchmarked separately in Portfolio Manager. More on how to benchmark a house of worship which contains other property types.

If you have a worship facility where the facility space that is used for worship is also used for other purposes (such as community meeting space), then it is still considered a worship facility.
