Retail Buildings: Standard Methods of Measurement
BOMA's newest measurement standard, Retail Buildings: Standard Methods of Measurement (2010), provides a uniform methodology for computing, communicating and comparing the measurement of retail buildings. It provides an unequivocal direct measure of the physical size of the floor area of a retail building and offers three measurement methods:
- Construction gross area, which includes the area defined as exterior gross area,as well as other areas that have a structural floor or are covered by a roof or canopy that are typically enclosed but within the building perimeter.
- Exterior gross area, which is the total of all the enclosed floor areas of all floors of a building contained within their measure lines, excluding voids, interstitial space, unexcavated space and crawl space.
- Gross leasable area, which is the total enclosed floor area designed for the exclusive use of an occupant, including any basements, mezzanines or upper floors.
- The new standard features 16 illustrations, worksheets and 48 definitions of measurement terms, hyperlinked in a PDF format.
