For more than a century, BOMA International has set the standard for measuring buildings. In 1915, BOMA published its first office standard, Standard Method of Floor Measurement. Throughout the years the standard has been revised to reflect the changing needs of the real estate market and the evolution of office building design. Today, BOMA International is the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) secretariat for a suite of area measurement standards.
