as their construction areas. As for those with structure storey height at or above 2.20 m, the gross area shall be calculated; as for those with such height below 2.20 m, 1/2 of the area shall be calculated.
3.0.8 The hallway and hall of a building shall be calculated as just one storey as for their construction areas, and the corridors inside them shall be calculated according to the horizontal projected areas of their structural base plates for their construction areas. For those with structure net height of or above 2.20 m, the gross area shall be calculated; for those with such height below 2.20 m, 1/2 of the area shall be calculated.
3.0.9 As for elevated corridors between buildings, those with top cover and building enclosure shall be calculated as their gross areas according to their horizontal area counted to the peripheries of their building enclosures, and those without building enclosures but with enclosure facilities shall be calculated as 1/2 of their areas according to the horizontal projected areas of their structural base plates.
3.0.10 As for tiered stack room, tiered warehouse facility and tiered garage, if they are provided with building enclosures, their construction areas shall be calculated as the horizontal areas of the building enclosures counted to peripheries; if they are not but are provided with enclosure facilities, their construction areas shall be calculated as the horizontal projected areas of structural base plates. Those without structure layers are calculated as one storey, and those with structure layers shall be calculated according to the areas of such layers respectively. For those with structure storey height of or above 2.20 m, the gross area shall be calculated; for those with such height below 2.20 m, 1/2 of the area shall be calculated.

3.0.24 The thermal insulation for external walls of building shall be calculated for the horizontal section area of the insulating materials, which shall be counted as part of the construction area of floor.
3.0.25 Deformation joints extending to the inside shall be incorporated to the floor in the calculation of construction area. As for a building with both high and low spans, when a high span is connected with a low span internally, the area of its deformation joints shall be counted as part of the low span area. 3.0.26 As for storeys with structure layers inside the building, such as mechanical floors, pipeline layers and refuge floors etc., the gross area shall be calculated for those with structure storey height of or above 2.20 m, and 1/2 of the area shall be calculated for those with such height below 2.20 m. 3.0.27 The following items shall not be included in the calculation of
