ISO 9836 pdf download Performance standards in building — Defnition and calculation of area and space indicators
This International Standard deals with the definition and calculation of surface area and volume indicators.ln defining area measurement, this International Standard uses three measurement concepts:
a)the intra-muros and extra-muros concept used in many parts of the world;
b) the wall centre method of measurement used in many parts of the world;
c)variations on these methods to comply with certain national laws, or for particular types of buildings.The surface area and volume indicators defined in this International Standard are intended for practical use,as a basis for measuring various aspects of the performance of buildings or as a planning aid. Iln other words,they should enable judgement to be made on functional, technical and economic aspects of buildings.
This lnternational Standard is intended to be used when establishing:
specifications for the geometric performance of a building and its spaces (e.g. in design, purchasingprocedures, etc., or in building regulations where appropriate);
technical documentation relating to the performance of whole buildings prepared by designers,contractorsand manufacturers;
the amount of floor area that will not be effectively available for the placement of an individual’s workplace,furniture, equipment, or for circulation;
evaluation, comparison or control of the properties of a building which are connected to its geometricperformance.
Although, as stated above, there are a variety of methods of area measurement around the world dependingon the country and/or types of buildings,all measuring methods are not necessarily of practical use becauseof inability to identify real area (e.g. the wall centre method of measurement).Thus this International Standardspecializes in the measurement solely for practical use.

ISo 6707-1,Building and civil engineering – Vocabulary— Part 1: General terms
3Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in ISO 6707-1 and the following apply.3.1
surface area indicators
amounts of certain types of area (e.g. usable area) and the relationship between different types of area (e.g.area occupied by structure/usable area)
amounts of certain types of volume (e.g. net volume) and the relationship between different types of volume (e.g. gross volume/net volume)
NOTE An example of a relationship indicator of volume is gross volume/net volume.
mixed surface area and volume indicator
indicator relating a type of volume to a type of area (e.g. gross volume/usable area) and a type of area to a type of volume
