I am contacting you regarding a couple of questions we have concerning the BOMA 1996/2010 Office Building Standards and Rentable Calculations. We have a project in which we are determining the gross measurable area and floor rentable area, using the 1996 Method A Standard. My question(s) are the following:
1. For calculating rentable floor area, is there a difference between Method A and Method B for office rentable area?
2. Does the City of San Francisco have a preference on which methodology is used for leasing?
3. Is there a change in the 2010 Office code (Method B) that eliminates common space, restrooms, lobbies, etc. from being included in the overall leasable floor area?
At your convenience, please let me know if can provide us with any correspondence. If you need additional information, please feel free to contact me at any time. Thank you.
