Slab area calculation..

Llian

I am not sure what I am missing here...

The entire parkade slab is 65, 835 sf.

On the Archicad drawing, I made some slab openings for heated spaces that are added to 7000 sq.ft

The remaining unheated space should just be 65, 835 - 7000 = 58, 5835 sft.

But the schedule doesn't add up to 65, 835 sf. Instead, it is 72, 835 sf.

Why is that so?

That is adding the 7000 sf slabs.

Are you sure you created holes in your main slab or have you just added extra slabs for the heated parts?

Thank you Barry.

I changed to criteria setting to the "holes" and it now adds up.

Surely there is a lot more to discover...
