Understanding the BOMA 2019 Industrial Standard
BOMA International released a significant update to its Industrial Floor Measurement Standard, BOMA 2019 for Industrial Buildings: Standard Method of Measurement (ANSI/BOMA Z65.2—2019). This session will help industrial property managers and brokers understand the major changes from the 2012 Industrial Standard, including a unified single methodology that replaces Method A (Exterior Wall Methodology) and Method B (Drip Line Methodology). Discover why accurate measurements benefit the entire property team: property management companies benefit financially, owners receive a better ROI and additional positive cash flow, and both property managers and brokers have defensible square footage numbers for leasing, acquisition and disposition of assets.
At the end of this session, participants will:
- Understand the changes from the 2012 to the 2019 Industrial Standard
- Learn the concepts and methodology within the standard and how to apply them
- Discover why accurate measurements are important for your leasing and management strategies
- Get answers to your most pressing questions about the BOMA Industrial Standard
