Interior designers face potential liability for mistakes that lead to injury, death, or damages – which sounds scary. Fortunately, you can limit your exposure through good business practices and procedures.
Building and fire codes can guide you during the design process. A large part of the interior designer’s work involves meeting codes, including:
- Space planning that allows for proper egress and exiting.
- Lighting design that meets emergency lighting requirements.
- Exit sign placement so building users can always locate their nearest exit.
- Fire extinguisher placement to meet code.
- Specifying door hardware that meets code requirements.
- Specifying building materials and finishes that meet fire codes.
- Specifying commercial furniture that meet fire codes.
