Floor Plans

Floor plans are useful to gain an insigh to the current layout of the building. During a non-domestic EPC survey we prepare floor plans for the purposes of producing the EPC. The EPC floor area is based on Gross Inernal Areas (GIA). The basis of GIA is laid out in the RICS Property Measurement 1st Edition incorporatig the Code of Measuring Practise 6th Edition. For instance GIA includes all internal areas even partition walls, columns, toilets, storage areas, corridors stairs etc. GIA is also used for estate agency and valuation purposes. Other basis of measurement includes Net Internal Area (NIA) which is used for estate agency, Gross External Area (GEA) which is used for industrial rating purposes in Scotland.

On request at the time of instruction, a floor layout plan can be provided.

These Floor Plans are for illustrative purposes only. Measurements and areas shown are approximate. These plans may not show the correct wall thicknesses, especially in older properties. We will aim to provide plans that are accurate and correctly represent the rooms within the property. We do not, however, provide any guarantees, warranty or representation as to the total accuracy and completeness of the floor plan. Anyone relying on the information provided in the property details (and floor plans) should conduct a careful, independent investigation of the property to determine the suitability of the property for their requirements. These are not as-built drawings therefore all dimensions should be checked on site.
