International Property Measurement Standards
REALpac is proud to be a member of The International Property Measurement Standards Coalition (IPMSC); a group of more than 60 professional and not-for-profit organizations from around the world, committed to the development and implementation of an international standard for measuring property. At present, the way property assets – such as homes, offices or shopping centres – are measured varies dramatically. An IPMS will ensure that property assets are measured in a consistent way, creating a more transparent marketplace, greater public trust, stronger investor confidence, and increased market stability.

On November 24, 2014, IPMS for Office Buildings was published by the IPMS Coalition. To download IPMS for Office Buildings, click here.

IPMS for Office Buildings has been drafted by the independent Standards Setting Committee and establishes a consistent methodology for measuring office buildings around the world.
