Average building size grows in the US


New commercial facilities in the U.S. are significantly larger than their predecessors, according to the EIA's Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey. Not only are facilities becoming larger, with a 21 percent increase in floor space from 2003 to 2012, but the survey also shows a 14 percent increase in new facility construction compared to 2003. The survey estimates that in 2012, there were 5.6 million commercial buildings in the U.S. occupying 87 billion square feet of floor space, and also notes that facilities constructed in the 2000s are around 2,700 square feet larger than those built between 1960 and 1999. more
