For the past decade,Specifications for Commercial Interiorshas been the definitive guide to required information on regulations and liabilities, materials performance criteria, and specification writing for interior systems. Today more than ever, every professional involved in the design of commercial and institutional interior space needs to know how to evaluate materials, avoid liability, and comply with current regulations. This new edition has been completely revised. Every section has been updated, and new chapters have been added on paneling, life cycle costing, data management, and fire performance testing. The book also incorporates the 1989 specification data issued by the Construction Specifications Institute. Used for a required course in the College of Architecture at Arizona State University, this book consists of 18 chapters—well documented with charts, diagrams, and checklists—which are organized into three parts. The first part defines professional and product liability and outlines the latest regulations and standards. Three separate chapters are devoted to fire hazards and their effect on interior finishes, upholstery, and furniture specification. Part 2 discusses interior systems and materials: rugs and carpets, resilient and hard-surface flooring, interior wall finishes, paneling, window systems, and commercial furniture. Life cycle costing is covered, as are the requirements for barrier-free public interiors. Part 3 establishes guidelines for coordinating drawings, schedules, and specification documents. The latest technological developments are referred to throughout the text, and up-to-date terminology is defined in glossaries at the ends of chapters. The book is an invaluable reference for interior designers, architects, and students of these professions.
