Excerpt from Volume 1
Estimating Area of "Building Loss Features"

This booklet contains a quick, low cost method for estimating the percentage of ASNI/BOMA "usable area" - area which is not occupiable due to the following building features:
    • columns projections and obstructions
    • dimensions and proportions of space
    • shape of the usable area
    • integration of systems and building elements
    • location of exits
    • closets and rooms for services, and washrooms
    • distance to windows or atrium
    • floor loads
This estimation method has been validated by testing it on buildings for which exact area calculations have been calculated using CAD software.
