How were space types for buildings in the old Portfolio Manager migrated to the new property uses in the new Portfolio Manager?

The new Portfolio Manager has an expanded list of property types (which were called "space types" in the old system). As part of the data conversion, your data may have been put into one of the new property types (see chart below).

Additional References:

Note: The property types which can receive ENERGY STAR scores will not change. The new property types will be treated in the same way that "Other" was treated in the old Portfolio Manager. The expanded list of property types will offer users more specific and accurate categorization for comparison against similar properties.

*Data will be migrated based on the building size. If floor area is less than or equal to 50,000 sq. ft., the space will be migrated to "Bank Branch." If floor area is greater than 50,000 sq. ft., the space will be migrated to "Financial Office."
**The Data Center spaces listed under the "Services" and "Technology" primary function areas are identical.
***Spaces currently benchmarked under the "Warehouse (unrefrigerated)" spacetype will migrate depending on their answer to the Distribution Center attribute. If a building has selected "Yes," then it will be converted to "Distribution Center". If the building has selected "No," or left the attribute blank, then it will be converted to "Non-Refrigerated Warehouse".
****If your property in the old system had the word "Police" we put it in "Police Station." If your property had the word "Fire" we put it in "Fire Station." If if had neither, we put it in "Other-Public Services."
*****Existing data will be migrated as "Other - Mall". Newly added property uses will no longer be able to select "Other - Other" as a function type.
