This diagram compares the BOMA 1996 Office Standard against the new BOMA 2010 Office Standard. At first glance one immediately assumes that the new standard "grows" the building. Actually, total building rentable SF does not change between the two standards, except for garden style office buildings with exterior circulation. Exterior (unenclosed walkways) Circulation is included in rentable as building service for the new 2010 Standard.
The diagram also shows the relationship of the BOMA Gross Area Standard to the 2010 Office Standard. If you would like further clarification on the new standards give us a call.
