Automated carpet area and built up area calculation How to calculate carpet area, built-up area and FAR automatically from your design

Click on the Areas tab in the right panel. You will see the total Carpet and Built-up area of the project.

If your design is multi storied, the total Carpet and Built-up area of each Storey are displayed in the subsequent lines.

Click on any Storey to see the detailed area split within the storey. The Carpet area of each room or function is displayed.

All of these areas are automatically calculated from your project.


Editing a floor plan, or a massing model in 3D will automatically update the area calculation.

After editing, click on the Areas tab to close it, and click again to open it. The updated areas are now displayed.


For your reference, here is how the areas are calculated:

  • Carpet area for an individual room is calculated as the full internal area of a room, which has flooring.

  • Carpet area for a storey is the total of all the room's carpet areas + the area of all doors.

  • Built up area of a storey is the total of all the room's carpet areas + the area of all walls.
