According to the International Property Measurement Standards (IPMS): Residential Buildings, published by the International Property Measurement Standards Coalition (IPMSC) in September 2016, a covered area is:
|The extent at ground level of the area of a building covered by one or more roofs, the perimeter of which (sometimes referred to as the drip line) is the outermost structural extension, exclusive of ornamental overhangs.|
The Scottish Building Standards, Part I. Technical Handbook – Domestic, Appendix A Defined Terms, defines a covered area as: ‘…a roofed building which is open on at least two sides except for roof supports.’
