Summary

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.
