Developed by a coalition of more than 85 professional organisations, including the API, from around the world, IPMS for All Building Asset Classes aims to establish, for the first time, a globally consistent and transparent method for measuring all buildings including mixed use and specialist buildings.
The IPMS Coalition is seeking comments/feedback from organisations such as the API, as well as practitioners who have an interest in the measurement and reporting of those measurements in relation to assets in the built environment.
The consultation period is for 12 weeks from 1 December 2020 until Monday 1 March 2021.
Members are encouraged to review the consultation document and provide a response directly to the IPMSC.
