We have a two-story office building that we are doing BOMA calcs for. The entire first floor is for a single tenant. Also, the majority of the building service areas are on the first floor. Our first-floor tenant feels that they are paying for the majority of the building services area because most of the services are on the first floor. This in turn increases the Floor Allocation Ratio and therefore, their rentable area.
How do I justify this to the first-floor tenant?
I’m using the standard Global Summary of Areas spreadsheet. But I have no idea how to justify it to them.
