For courses,or portions of courses, focused on Codes, Regulations, and Standards for Interior Design.

Codes, Regulations, and Standards in Interior Design shows interior design students and practitioners how to make the incorporation of code requirements an integral part of their design process. The text develops a clear understanding of the reasons for, the history of, the meaning and application of, and the enforcement of applicable codes, regulations, and standards to real problems in Interior Design. Hurt instills in students that codes, regulations, and standards are not "necessary evils", but are there to assist them as designers in understanding and applying the principles of life safety and property protection, both of which are important and integral goals in any design project. The text covers the most current reference documents available today–primarily the 2009 series of model codes from the International Code Council.
