What GFA's are tracked for my property? How do I edit them? Follow

Your property’s Gross Floor Area (GFA) is tracked in four different metrics:

  • Property GFA – Self-Reported is the number you enter when you first create a property. It can be edited on the Details tab, under “Basic Information.” This value does not change over time, and it is not time weighted. If you edit it, it deletes the previous value without saving a record of what it had been.
  • Property GFA - EPA Calculated (Buildings and Parking) is the sum of the GFA of all the Property Uses that you entered on the Details tab, including parking GFA. This value is time weighted.
  • Property GFA - EPA Calculated (Buildings) is the sum of the GFA of all the Property Uses that you entered on the Details tab, excluding parking GFA. This number should match your “Property GFA – Self-Reported.” If you have Property Uses that change square footage frequently (like office space going vacant), this is a good check to make sure all of your Property Uses add up to the right number. This value is time weighted.
  • Property GFA - EPA Calculated (Parking) is the sum of the GFA of your “Partially Enclosed” and “Completely Enclosed” Parking Property Uses that you entered on the Details tab. This value is time weighted.

Your Self-Reported GFA should equal either the total for Buildings only, or Buildings & Parking, depending on how you are benchmarking your parking. Learn more about how to benchmark parking.
