If you are looking to invest in a commercial building, one important factor you will likely be focused on is the building’s size. However, there’s more to calculating the square footage of a commercial building than meets the eye.
Not only will you need to determine the overall size of the structure, but you will also have to calculate the rentable space inside. Having an understanding of the exact space that can be rented to tenants will help you decide which building is the right fit. Here is a breakdown of how to calculate the square footage of a commercial building.

To find which building is the best option, you will need to use various commercial square footage measurement techniques. Three measurement strategies that can help you evaluate a commercial building’s size and functionality include:
