A customer wants to move into a "retail" space in our office building. What is the correct method for mesuring the the USF space on a cad file?
In this case, there is a 98 s.f. difference in two seperate cad files that needs to be resolved. Over ten years that is $23,000.
One wall is full height exterior storefront to 9'-0" a.f.f with furred columns between and two other windows with sills at 36" a.f.f.
Does retail and office measure the same for BOMA? Does BOMA measure to the glazing surface for USF/rentable? Does BOMA measure USF or rentable to the center line of demising walls between two separate, distict tenants?
