Summary

Interior Design Materials and Specifications is a book and CD-ROM combination that covers the selection, care, and code compliance associated with materials for interiors. It addresses the topic of material and trade resources from the viewpoint of the working designer, describing each material's characteristics alongside information about specification and project management. Exercises related to the selection, specification, and installation process give students the opportunity to select materials, specify, and practice project management tools related to an adaptive reuse scenario. This simulated project requires students to apply their knowledge in a real-world format, paying close attention to the reasons behind each material choice.
