Gross Area Measurement Standards

The Gross Area of a building is used in planning, zoning, building codes, construction cost estimating, appraisal, tax accessment and marketing of buildings with all kinds of occupancies. There are dozens of published methods for determining Gross Area, many of which are buried inside codes and statutes. While most have areas of agreement, some (like the International Building Code) use the term Gross Area with an entuirely different meaning.

Following are two good published standards for measuring the Gross Area of a building.

Follow the links to find out more about these standards and how to acquire them. Building Area Measurement LLC does not sell or distribute these standards.
