Partition area in plan

Carlos Schwarz



we are trying to list on a schedule the area that partitions occupy in plan but including the area where we have a door and taking into account wall intersections. Any suggestions?


We can't find the right parameter in AC24 or AC25, the closest would be to use "Area (general)" but that excludes the door's area.

We have tried creating our own property and multiplying "end thickness of wall" x "length of reference wall" but it  doesn't take into consideration the wall intersections (it double counts the area in the intersection).


We just found that in AC18 there was a parameter called "Area of wall" that is close to what we need but it seems to be gone? (even if in the description it says that "Wall intersections have no effect on the area value":


We'll appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
