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.
