Square footage calculation

October 21, 2019

When measuring the exterior of a retail building to obtain the square footage needed to determine parking space requirements would the loading dock be included in that measurement?

Hi Karen,

This isn't a question that applies to the BOMA Retail Standard. Parking space requirements are usually determined according to city by-laws.
