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.
