As-Built Floor Plan Definition:
As-Built plans are a verification of the existing square footage of a building. This onsite measure may or may not differ from what was recorded at the Assessor office or on the original building plans. With the cost of real estate evaluated per square foot, a simple miss-measurement could result in hundreds if not thousands of lost dollars.

Why should you have your building measured?
It identifies more rentable area. The revision to the BOMA standard in 1996 and 2010 favored property owners by including areas not previously covered. In many cases the rentable area of a building increases as a result of re-measurement. This may significantly result in more income and increases the value of the building. The payback period for investing in measuring may be the quickest of any investment in your building.
An accurately measured building is a marketing tool.
Once on CAD, drawings can be produced of specific tenant areas with proposed layouts and rentable areas or other information you desire. Files can be used in fliers or web pages, making the presentation look more professional.
