Floor Area Measurement Standards
The commercial real estate market in North America consists of numerous sub-markets distinguished by use and geographic location. By use, the major commercial sub-markets are office, retail, industrial, and multi-unit residential properties. Each of those sub-markets employs measurement practices that are unique to that sub-market.
Most major measurment standards are listed under the six categories below. Click on the category links for more information about each standard.
Note that these standards are not laws, but voluntary standards that serve to bring measurement consistency and comparability between properties in the real estate markets in which they are used.
