BOMA Floor Standards Development Program
BOMA International develops floor measurement standards to measure the floor area of all commercial buildings including office, industrial, multi-unit residential, retail, mixed use properties, and gross areas of a building. View a timeline of BOMA’s standards development, including publication of the International Property Measurement Standards (IPMS).
Before publishing any standard, BOMA International follows its internal procedures for developing consensus among its members and those interested members of the industry who participate in the development/revision of these standards. The BOMA International Floor Measurement Standards Committee is the body that develops and maintains BOMA International Standards and is the secretariat for all floor measurement standards that BOMA International develops.
