Multi-Unit Residential Standard

If you thought BOMA standards only measured office buildings, think again. BOMA’s Multi-Unit Residential Buildings: Standard Methods of M​easurement (ANSI/BOMA Z65.4-2010)​ provides a uniform methodology for computing, communicating and comparing the measurement of multi-unit residential buildings. The standard was developed through the collaborative efforts of BOMA International, the Institute of Real Estate Management, the National Association of Home Builders and the National Multi Housing Council.

It provides an unequivocal direct measure of the physical size of the floor area of a multi-residential building and offers two measurement methods: a Gross Method, which generally measures unit gross area, and a Net Method, which generally measures unit net areas. The standard features illustrations, worksheets and 36 definitions of measurement terms.
