This standard provides a uniform basis for measuring rentable area in both existing and new office buildings by taking a building-wide approach to floor area measurement. It provides a methodology for measuring both occupant space as well as the space that benefits all occupants.
Features of the 2010 Office Standard include:
- Single Load Factor Method calculation that can be applied to the occupant area of each floor to determine the rentable area and is the same for all floor levels of a building. This new “Method B” has been added as an option. The general methodology of the 1996 Standard has been continued to Legacy Method A.
- A new class of space, “Occupant Storage,” for measuring certain occupant areas in a building, such as basement occupant storage, that is not calculated in the Single Load Factor.
- Regional leasing practices, particularly for tropical climates, allow for enclosure requirements and limited (unenclosed) circulation
- ANSI Approved
