The majority of people in the United States work in offices. In fact, more people spend more time in offices than in any other place outside the home. According to a 1991 survey by Interior Design magazine, office design is the primary specialty of two-thirds of the "100 Interior Design Giants". This book explores the complete process of office design, from the initial marketing of professional services to the final move-in and project follow-up. Among the important topics covered in depth by author Peter B. Brandt, AIA, are contract preparation, site selection and analysis, project budgeting and scheduling, code considerations, and preparation of documents for construction and furnishings. There is excellent advice on organizing the project from the outset and communicating with the client. Central to the process is the design itself, and the book fully details the challenges and techniques of designing to meet the special needs of offices.
