Hi, Michael! Measuring the space in a commercial building can be tricky sometimes. Regarding leasable areas, there are a few types of measurements you should know about:Apr 09, 2019 06:01:51
Gross floor area (GFA) - is measured to the external face of the external walls
Gross internal area (GIA) -measured to the internal face of the external walls
Net internal area (usable floor area) - the space left from the GIA after removing the space taken up by stairs, machinery rooms, elevators, toilet areas, other utility rooms and the like.
Gross leasable area -is measured from the external face of the walls, but excludes common areas such as corridors or staircases. However, both GLA and GFA take into account the space occupied by walls or columns.
To be sure you make the right measurements, you may want to invite an appraiser or a land surveyor to make the measurements for you.
