For more than a century, BOMA International has set the standard for measuring buildings.  In 1915, BOMA published its first Standard Method of Floor Measurement for Office Buildings, an accepted and approved methodology by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).  Throughout the years the standard has been revised to reflect the changing needs of the real estate market and the evolution of office building design.

Today, BOMA is the secretariat for a suite of measurement standards, which includes standards for office, industrial, multi-unit residential, retail and mixed-use buildings.

BOMA 2017 for Office Buildings: Standard Methods of Measurement (ANSI/BOMA Z65.1-2017) is the latest update to the office standard, which has been revised over the years to reflect the changing needs of the commercial real estate market. The 2017 Office Standard includes several enhancements and clarifications to address evolving building designs and tenant amenities.
