This field records the NIA of Research not offices space, which is also classified as specialist space. Hence this space will also be recorded within the Research not offices NIA field.
Space is considered “specialist” where it is designed for a specialist purpose and which cannot easily be used for other non-specialist activities. It includes rooms or facilities with abnormal or exceptional equipment where such a feature inhibits the use of the room for other non-specialist activities.
In this field, providers should return areas dedicated to specific teaching functions which cannot readily be used for other purposes.
