BOMA International releases newest floor measurement standard for office buildings

The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International has released its latest floor measurement standard for office buildings, BOMA 2024 for Office Buildings – ANSI/BOMA Z65.1-2024.

WASHINGTON, March 18, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The BOMA 2024 Office Standard includes many new features, enhancements, and clarifications since the release of the 2017 edition. It is intended exclusively for office buildings, regardless of the nature of the businesses they house; including but not limited to, various commercial, medical, institutional, and life science uses. It can be used for single tenant, multi-tenant, or multi-building configurations, and is suitable for measuring new, existing, and proposed office buildings.

For more than a century, BOMA has set the standard for measuring buildings, publishing its first measurement standard for office buildings in 1915. The primary purpose of the BOMA Office Standard is to calculate Rentable Area, a crucial metric in office leasing, yet it also provides area figures useful for space utilization analysis, valuation, benchmarking, and allocating building expenses across different cost centers.

Today, BOMA International is the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) secretariat for a suite of area measurement standards across a range of property types. BOMA’s measurement standards are regularly revised to ensure they address changing building design and use and comply with the ANSI standards development process, of which BOMA International is a member and an ANSI Certified Standards Developer.

“With the office sector undergoing significant market shifts, this timely update to BOMA’s Office Standard is a powerful resource that property owners, tenants, appraisers, architects, space planners and building measurement professionals can rely on, said BOMA International Chair and CEO, Robert Six. “Since 1915, BOMA has supported the industry with its clear, easy-to-follow guidance on measuring and calculating commercial spaces. The 2024 Office Standard is the latest reflection of that unwavering commitment.”

Offered in both print and electronic formats, BOMA’s new 2024 Office Standard is available for purchase through BOMA’s Bookstore. BOMA will host a webinar later this year to explore new features of the 2024 Office Standard and answer FAQs. In the meantime, members of BOMA’s Floor Measurement Standards Committee are available to provide interpretation, best practice guidance, and consultation services.
