Can CityEngine use feet or does all attribute data need to be converted to metric sys

Can CityEngine accurately extrude and report data in feet or only meters? So far the only success I've had extruding my shapefile attribute data, has been to convert the units to meters before importing into CityEngine.

Since I am a planner in the United States, all of data I work with and reports I wish to produce are in feet, not the metric system. All of the shapefile attribute data I use are in feet. For example, building height, perimeter, area, etc. Also, all of reporting I want to do would be in feet. For example, determining the square feet of a proposed development.

Thanks for the help.
