Get your rulers ready! BOMA International has completely revised its office building measurement standard, first published in 1915 and last revised in 1996. Coined the "BOMA Standard" by practitioners for its widespread use, the publication has been revised periodically to reflect the changing needs of the real estate market and the evolution of office building design. The 2010 version signifies a major revision, including a new name, Office Buildings: Methods of Measurement and Calculating Rentable Area. The 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. The new standard has been reorganized to present information in a more logical and easy to find order, with a downloadable format that includes hyperlinks throughout the document text, expanded definitions and 45 full-color illustrations.
