When you’re considering Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment (FF&E) in a design project, it’s common to focus on selecting furniture and materials – but if that’s your sole focus, you’ll miss out on some important parts of your project.
FF&E involves more than just aesthetics. There a lot of technical and legal issues (such as flammability and code requirements) to consider, as well.
FF&E is an important part of both the IDFX and IDPX exams, so when you’re studying, remember to think about the entirety of this material – not just the information on furniture and materials. You will also have some questions about FF&E on the PRAC Exam, as they relate to contract documents.
For the exam, you’ll need to study:
Researching and sourcing FF&E information, including textiles, window treatments, wall treatments, and floor coverings.
FF&E specifications for architectural woodwork.
The difference between various types of technical specifications.
Cost estimating and budgeting.
Production time, installation, and product assembly.
