Indicate in Method used to measure floor area whether the HEI's floor space data conforms to the NIA definition (N) (provided in NIA and RICS Red Book) or uses a room area basis (R).
Where Method used to measure floor area is completed as room area basis (R) HESA will apply a 6% uplift to the measurements returned in Net Internal Area, Net Internal Area commercial space and Specialist academic area.
