Floor area ratio (FAR) is the ratio of a building’s total floor area (gross floor area) to the size of the piece of land upon which it is built. The terms can also refer to limits imposed on such a ratio through zoning.
As a formula FAR = (gross floor area) / (area of the plot)
What is Building Coverage Ratio (BCR)?
The ratio of the Building area divided by the land (site) area. Building area means the floor space of a building when looking down at it from the sky.
Depending on the Land Use Zone category it is regulated within 30% – 80%, and a building has to be constructed within the specified maximum BCR ratio in the zone.
For example; in case of a Land area of 100㎡ with a BCR at 50%, a building with the maximum (Building area) of 50㎡ can be constructed.
