Difference Between Carpet Area, Built-up Area And Super Built-up Area

Posted by Balaji on December 30, 2020

Nowadays, finding a house of one’s choice has become both easy and risky because of

the wide range of options available in the market. A number of builders and developers

are out there providing you all that you require in a dream home in terms of

construction, utilities, and much more.

However, finding out a home that suits your taste is not enough. Knowing a little more

technical information about your future home is going to hold it in your favor. Before

you buy a house get to know the difference between carpet area, built-up area, and

super built-up areas?


What Is Carpet Area?

Carpet area is the net usable area of the apartment. It includes the thickness of the

internal wall but excludes terrace or balcony. Technically, the carpet area is the

distance between the inner walls. This also includes the kitchen and bathroom. All

common areas outside the apartment are excluded from this measurement, such as

stairs, elevators, security rooms, etc.


How to Calculate the Total Carpet Area?

There are many ways to measure carpet area. Firstly, you should know that carpet

area is 70 percent of built-up area. For eg, assuming that the built-up area is 1,000 sq

ft, the carpet area should be 70% of 1,000 sq ft, which is 700 sq ft in this case. So 700

sq ft is your carpet area.


What Is Built-Up Area?

This is the gross area of the flat that includes the area of the carpet as well as the

walls and ducts’ thickness. The build-up area can be 15-25 times more than the carpet

area and is often referred as the plinth area.


How to Calculate Built-Up Area?

Suppose, areas covered as terraces, balconies add up to 10 percent of the built-up

area while the usable area is just 70 percent of the built-up area. So, if the built-up

area is 1,000 sq ft, it implies that 30%, i.e. 300 sq ft, is not usable, while the

remaining area that will be used is 700 sq ft.


What Is Super Built-Up Area?

It includes common amenities such as the area of elevator, veranda, and clubhouse,

proportionately divided among all flats. Often, developers charge buyers based on this

area to cover their cost of apartment construction. Thus, it is also referred as a ‘total

saleable’ area.


Calculating Super Built-Up Area

For calculating the super built-up area, let us assume a builder considers 1.25 as a

multiplying factor to calculate an apartment with a carpet area of 1000 sqft. Then the

super built-up area will be 1,250 sqft.

    We bought an apartment in Bangalore recently and Gangadhar made the entire process easy and seamless. Our experience with Gangadhar was outstanding and he took care of all the requirements for the property transfer end to end in a compressed timeframe. Gangadhar was patient, provided good advice and listened to all our requirements. He went above and beyond to help with a variety of other matters as well. I would highly recommend Gangadhar and his team.

    Mr. Balaji is our family acquaintance and is known to us for several years, he is also involved in philanthropic work, It is our good fortune that we entrusted the sale of our ancestral property to Mr. Balaji and his company. Mr. Balaji and his team of trusted lieutenants ensured the process right from selecting the buyer till completion of sale was completed without any hiccups and took care of all the paper work. Balaji and his team were willing to go the extra mile to ensure the sale was complete as per agreement. We would like to commend Balaji and team and hope we will have the opportunity to engage him again in the future. Wishing Balaji and team all success personally and professionally.
