The July edition of Perspectives announced a new EP 7 at LS.01.01.01. It covers how you report square footage in the basic building information document.

Basic Building Information Square Footage Reporting

At face value, the new EP seems innocuous. It only requires you to maintain the basic building information (BBI) with the statement of conditions. And, you already do that.

But, the announcement states the BBI now requires specific square footage rather than ranges. So, while the EP does not make this clear, you may need to change your current process. Instead of ranges, calculate the exact square footage you have in each building.

In fact, you’ll need to make these calculations soon. This change becomes effective January 1, 2020.
