Wall-to-floor ratiosThe following activity asks you to look at the wall-to-floor ratios and form afinancial comparison between two designs. The smaller the ratio the more floorspace is created which in financial terms for a client would be rentable areas.Building APlan area = 35m x 35mHeight = 35mStorey height = 3.5mBuilding BPlan area = 22.5m x 22.5mHeight = 24.75mStorey height = 2.75mIf the floor budget construction cost is £50/m2 and the wall area construction cost £25/m2,calculate the wall to floor ratio for both buildings.
• Find : The Wall-to-floor ratios• Worked example Building A• Number of floors = 35/3.5 = 10 floors• Total floor area = 10 x 35 x 35 = 12,250m2• Total wall area = 35 x 4 x 35 = 4900m2• Total wall cost = 4900 x £25/m2 = £122,500• Total floor cost = 12,250 x £50/ m2 = £612,500• Wall/floor ratio = £122,500 = 0.20• Building B• Number of floors = 24.75/2.75 = ? floors• Total floor area = 9 x 22.5 x 22.5 = ? m2• Total wall area = 24.75 x 4 x 22.5 = ? m2• Total wall cost = 1114 x £25/m2 = ? £• Total floor cost = 4556 x £50/m2 = ? £• Wall/floor ratio = ? £ = What amount a decinal
