Part 2 discusses interior systems and materials: rugs and carpets, resilient and hard-surface flooring, interior wall finishes, paneling, window systems, and commercial furniture. Life cycle costing is covered, as are the requirements for barrier-free public interiors. Part 3 establishes guidelines for coordinating drawings, schedules, and specification documents. The latest technological developments are referred to throughout the text, and up-to-date terminology is defined in glossaries at the ends of chapters.
