CHAPTER 4 STRUCTURAL INTERIOR DESIGN
Structural Interior Design (SID) requires the accommodation of required FF&E within the
building and the design, selection and coordination of interior finish materials that are
integral to or attached to the building structure. The SID provides basic space planning
for anticipated FF&E requirements in conjunction with the functional layout of the
building and design issues such as life safety, privacy, acoustics, lighting, ventilation,

sampling of applied finishes for the building's interior features including, but not limited
to, walls, floors, ceilings, trims, doors, windows, window treatments, built-in furnishings

floor plans, finish schedules, and any supporting interior elevations, details or plans
