Analysis Variable:   NASF for Current Construction Projects
Survey Item Text
Please estimate this project's completion costs and the amount of space (NASF) for research for each field below. Report only the fields whose prorated cost is estimated to be over $250,000. In the line for animal space, include only projects costing over $250,000 for the work on animal space.
Net assignable square feet (NASF) is the sum of all areas on all floors of a building assigned to, or available to be assigned to, an occupant for a specific user, such as research or instruction. NASF is measured from the inside faces of walls.
Start date is the date on which the physical work of the construction actually began.
New construction refers to construction of a new building, additions to an existing building, and the building out of shell space.
Shell space is unfinished space that intentionally is left for completion at a later time.
If research space will be shared among fields or used for other purposes in additon to research: Report the portion of cost and space used for research by each field below. For example, if two fields will share the space equally, report half of the costs and space in one field and half in the other. Or, if an area was used for research one-fourth of the time and for other purposes the rest of the time, report one-fourth of the costs and space as research space.
