BIDA Interior Designers Job Book
Stephen Yakeley and Diana Yakeley (RIBA Publishing Sept. 2010)
The Interior Designer’s Job Book is the first book to set out the professional standard for running an interior design project. It does so step by step, in a sequence designed to complement the construction industry’s standard Plan of Work, providing guidance at every stage of a job from appraisal of the client’s requirements through to completion.
Suitable for all interior design projects – whether small or large – and for both interior designers working in an integrated design team and those acting as lead consultant, it brings a codified procedure and a professional rigour to the way your practice works and the way your projects run – vital for achieving a professional edge in a competitive field.
Its hands-on approach is supplemented by numerous model letters and specimen forms, which the designer can quickly adapt to any job in question. With guidance to the legal background and an introduction to the new concept of space planning, the Interior Designer’s Job Book should become standard reading for both new and established interior design practices, and a textbook for design school/university students on which to base their understanding of professional practice.
