Existing Electrical Loads

I am doing an electrical design project on an existing building.  

Does anybody have a good strategy for assigning/estimating the existing electrical loads?

Is there anyway to do some sort of hybrid panel schedule that will accept manual input and modeled loads.

If you are not concerned with the load classifications, you can assign a Spare along with a name and load. Otherwise, I would suggest creating an "Existing Load" Family and assign it to a Category that you do not use and can keep turned off (i.e. Site). Draw a box and put an electrical connector on it, and make Voltage, Number of Poles, etc. Instance parameters. Place one instance of this family to simulate one existing load.
