Product Description

From the Inside Flap

"Space Planning for Commercial Office Interiors" provides a thorough and engaging look at the entire process of space planning, from meeting the client for the first time to delivering a beautifully-rendered and creative space plan that addresses all of that client's needs. The author takes readers through a step-by-step method that includes establishing client requirements, developing and translating ideas into design concepts, drafting layouts, and ultimately combining these layouts into well-organized, effective floor plans replete with offices, workstations, support rooms and reception areas. Covering issues such as circulation, spatial and square footage calculations, building codes, adaptation to exterior architecture, ceiling systems, barrier-free designs, and LEED requirements along the way, the text presents all of the key principles, processes, and tasks associated with laying out interior space to optimize the health, safety and wellness of its occupants. Thoughtfully organized, with useful exercises to help the reader master the entire process and lessons that can be applied to all types of designed interiors, this book is an indispensable learning tool for intermediate-level students in interior design, architecture, facilities management, and construction management as well as professional designers and office managers anticipating a corporate move.
