    Hey Michael,

    I can help with this! Per the question, the client does not want to change the program, so the building needs to become more efficient (same NSF, lower GSF). By reducing GSF, the overall cost of the project will be reduced by $500/SF.

    In Case Study #1 answers: The building efficiency factor is a measurement of Usable Square Footage/ Gross Square footage. I am confused about how this can be taken into consideration for cost savings since the building's program and square footage hasn't changed.

    Hi Blecille,

    Here is a link to the ARE Handbook. Also, the link in the above post has been updated. Thanks for the heads up!

    Thanks, NCARB but just a heads up so others don't get confused. The cost is $500/SF and the reduction is $2,000,000.

    Where can I find the correct answers?  The link above does not take you to the ARE Handbook, it takes you to the ARE Guidelines and it doesn't contain the answers.  Can you direct me to it please?
