I'm taking PA tomorrow and when looking at the ARE handbook, sample question 7 used the following building areas to calculate the net assignable area :
Breakroom, conference room, open work area, private offices, reception/waiting , restrooms and storage.
I. understand the question and its answer but what I don't understand is why restrooms and storage as included when calculating the net assignable area. Based on Problem Seeking , Net assignable area does not include primary or secondary circulation, restrooms, storages, mechanical rooms etc or stairs, elevators and shafts. Wouldn't these be items you leave out when calculating the net assignable area?
