    Hey Ashley,

    my experience at the test gave me the gross then listed each area.  All I had to do was to decide which areas to use to calculate the NET....

    you will also have a question related to calculating a percentage change in the NET without changing the GROSS square footing, in other words, the question is related to a client not satisfied with the efficiency ratio but dont want to add to the GROSS.

    hope this helps...

    Hi Ashley,

    I came across the same question and found this-

    Gross BUILDING area: The entire area of the floor plan, measured to the outside walls.

    Gross FLOOR area: Deduct major vertical penetrations(shafts, elevators etc) from the GBA.
