Staying with our gross areas,…we're gonna now look at the gross internal area, or GIA.…So this is the internal polyline…that you would create to measure…the entire gross internal area…of this particular floor of the building.…You can see the gross external area is there,…and I've deliberately put it in that nice bright green…so that you can see it's there.…So if I now go back to the Layers panel…on the Home tab on the ribbon,…and I come in here and click on my little fly-out…and switch my polylines back on…by clicking on the snowflake there,…that'll bring the room area polylines back into the drawing.…
And as you can see now, you're starting to see…all of these areas begin to take shape…in your facilities management drawing.…Now I'm gonna zoom in in the top left area…of the building again like so.…And again, I'm not gonna bore you…by doing the entire gross internal area polyline…but in the same way that you've created…the gross external area polyline,…you would now go to the layers panel again…and go into your layer properties,…
