What is the best practice for calculating space?

Recommended Posts



I am currently working in VW Architect 2021, and I am designing a two story residence. I would like to capture the space/room/dimensions and have that data reflected/incorporated into a VW worksheet so I can produce accurate estimations and material take offs. Any assistance that you can provide in this matter is greatly appreciated.

The space object is good for documentation, data presentation, and other uses like energy calculations.

For accurate surveys of services and related materials, I make a record format for each building component, with the service specification and the unit normally used as measurement criteria, as a minimum. It's easy to add worksheet functions as new report columns for these reports.

There are also pre-formatted reports for this, in the VW archives, with a lot of information that might be useful.
