publication cover
by D. Kirk Hamilton and Sarel Lavy

Square footage data is important to health care facilities for many reasons: it is used in gauging building performance; in planning new projects; and in creating more accurate capital investment estimates. Yet there are currently many different methods for determining square footage in health care departments. This monograph outlines a standard method to calculate the area of health care spaces. This method, based on years of development and vetting, creates much-needed standardization to the measurement process.
