-====== Commercial Improvements ====== 
-===== Commercial Sketches in Apex ===== 
-When drawing a commercial building, you start by selecting Define Area (F4), just as you would a residential. For the area type, select "​OTHER"​. For the area name, enter the 5 character code without any spaces, as described below. Our example would be entered as CM011.\\ 
-The area name is divided into three sections: 
-  - CM - This will always be the same, and simply identifies it as a commercial building. 
-  - 01 - This is the occupancy number. Each area to be priced is given a separate occupancy number. For example, if this parcel had 2 buildings, you would draw one as occupancy 1, and one as occupancy 2. However, you could have more than one occupancy in the same building. For example, a building that has a retail store in the front and a warehouse in the back would be priced as 2 different occupancies:​ one for the store and one for the warehouse. Each area would be drawn individually and labeled as such. 
-  - 1 - This is the floor number. It is important to remember that this is the floor of the occupancy and not the physical floor. For example, if you had a two story building that had a retail store downstairs and an office upstairs, the retail store would be drawn as occupancy 1 floor 1 (or CM011), and the office would be occupancy 2 floor 1 (or CM021). The 2nd area would be floor 1 since the office area is only 1 floor, even though it is physically on the 2nd floor of the building.

-===== Elevator Entry Methods ===== 
-Commercial and Agricultural Estimators have two methods of entering elevators: 
-  * Elevators by Count, for which you enter the number of elevators. 
-  * Elevators by Area, for which you enter the area served by the elevators. 
-It is always better to price elevators by the Count Method when the type and number of elevators are known. 
-For elevators by count, base your selection of the rank on the quality of the elevators (not necessarily the quality of the building) using the following: 
-  * (Rank 1): Small capacity, slow speed, simple systems, such as those typically found in low-rise multiple residences. 
-  * High (Rank 4): Better quality elevators with a large weight capacity and higher speed, such as those typically found in high-rise office buildings. ​ 
-The elevator types available in Commercial and Agricultural Estimators are: 
-650  Elevators (By Area) 
-651  Passenger Elevators 
-652  Freight Elevators with Power Doors 
-653  Freight Elevators with Manual Doors 
-654  Man Lift  
-655  Escalator 
-656  Wheelchair Lift 
-//Note: The Marshall Valuation Service automatically includes elevators in the cost for some occupancy, class and rank combinations. __However, Commercial and Agricultural Estimators do not automatically include elevators in any occupancies. ​ You must use one__// ​
