International coalition aims to standardize home sizes

More than 30 professional bodies from around the world met last week at the International Monetary Fund in Washington, D.C. to launch a major initiative that seeks to create international standards in construction measurement.

RICS vice president Amanda Clack commented: “It was evident there was a real willingness to work together collaboratively for the benefit of the public and our clients.
