Upon completion of a project, our team reviews the Building Area Report with you to explain key findings and metrics. It’s important to us that you understand the meaning behind the numbers.

Your report will contain:

DID YOUR BUILDING GROW WITH
BOMA 2017 OFFICE?

If your building has outdoor amenity space, measuring it with the BOMA 2017 Office Standard may impact the rentable area.

Of all the updates in BOMA’s 2017 Office standard, the addition of outdoor space is having the greatest impact on area metrics for a building. After measuring over 100 million square feet with the new standard, we’ve seen rentable area increases of less than 1% all the way up to 10% and above — depending on the amount and type of outdoor space. While there is a clear benefit of achieving higher rentable area for a building owner, the new standard and the amenity trends are also creating some confusion and leasing challenges.

BEYOND MEASURE
EDUCATION EVENT

Gensler research has found that there are over 500 million square feet of office space in the U.S. ripe for repositioning. While we’re in an amenity arms race, not all amenities yield the desired return. In this presentation, we’ll dive into design trends and share tips and tricks on delivering an amenity-rich building while balancing load factors.

Our building measurement team has been invited to dozens of cities to inform clients and the market about design and amenity trends and their impact on BOMA measurements. This presentation speaks to those engaged in buying, selling, leasing, or repositioning properties.
