Trying to run some prelims to win a bid for an site expansion so I don't have tons of info. Part of the expansion is to add parking below grade and use the deck as tennis courts. I feel that the closest category in ASCE7 is the "bowling alleys or other recreational areas" at 75psf. I feel this is justifiable, however I am concerned that the worst case could be that at some random point the courts are used for some public assembly that would more fit into a 100psf category. Has anyone else ever had a similar issue when trying to justify LL?
