Codes are meant to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public. Interior designers must have a basic understanding of the various codes that are involved in designing interiors--whether they are working with new spaces or renovating existing ones. Codes and standards with interior provisions include, among others, the new International Building Code, the 3 model building codes (UBC, SBCCI, BOCA), the Life Safety Code, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Comments: The Codes Guidebook for Interiors- professional peer review I own each of the 3 editions of this book, and have found the information to be a well source of sound, practical advise concerning the application of codes as they relate to interior projects. I am an Interior Designer and I refer to my copy of Codes Guidebook for Interiors regularly for projects I am involved in. This book and the companion study guide are part of the recommended resources for studying and preparing for the NCIDQ examination. I believe this book should be a part of every commercial practitioners library, whether they be an architect or interior designer.

Comments: Codes are Fun! Could studying building codes actually be fun? Much to my surprise, when you combine this book with the companion study guide workbook it is. The author presents the information on the codes clearly and in logical order. I am studying for my NCIDQ exam and was really nervous about the "codes questions" until I got this book.
