Property Measurement

Definition of Gross Floor Area (GFA)

Gross Floor Area ('superficie construida' in Spanish) can be defined as the area bounded by the outer line of the exterior walls and the axis line of the party walls, deducting the area occupied by patios and courts. In Spain, the area occupied by balconies, terraces, porches and other private outdoor spaces does not count if they are open spaces, and if they are covered spaces can be computed at 50% or 100%, depending on the number of walls and the measurement criterion to apply. Computing or not the GFA of spaces where the height is less than 1.50 m also depends on the measurement criteria and on the use of the property.

Definition of Gross Internal Area (GIA)

The Gross Internal Area of a building ('superficie útil' in Spanish) can be defined as the result of subtracting from the Floor Area bounded by the inner line of the exterior walls and the party walls the Floor Area occupied by the following elements:

  • interior fixed partitions
  • vertical structural elements
  • pipes or ducts with more than 100 square centimeters in horizontal section.

In Spain, the Floor Area occupied by spaces where the height is less than 1.50 meters must also be deducted from the total GIA. Covered private outdoor spaces (terraces, balconies, porches, loading bays, overhangs, etc.) compute at 50% of the Floor Area occupied by the horizontal projection of the roof.
