This is the first book to set out the professional standard for running an interior design project. Suitable for all interior designers – whether working alone or as part of a design team, and on projects of all sizes – it provides guidance for every stage of a job, from appraisal of the client’s requirements through to practical completion and payment.
Set out as a step-by-step process which dovetails with the standard procedures used by architects and contractors, it is full of practical advice and includes model letters and specimen forms which can be quickly adapted to any job. It also contains guidance to the legal background, a clause-by-clause explanation of the standard form of client contract (ID/10), and an introduction to space planning. Fully endorsed by the British Institute of Interior Design, it will bring a professional rigour to the way projects run and is vital for maintaining a competitive edge in a crowded field.Diana and Stephen Yakeley have run a multi-disciplinary architectural, interior and garden design practice for many years. This book is the distillation of their considerable professional knowledge and experience.

This title can be used as a step by step guide to all of the processes which should be undertaken throughout the entire process of completing an interior design project. It follows the RIBA plan of works stages to demonstrate how a project should be run from the design proposal all the way through to post-practical completion and processing payments. This also includes methods and conventions to ensure that best practice is continuously upheld such as ways to log phone conversations, templates for letters addressed to the client and contractors as well the correct way to specify materials and furniture. This is one of the few publications within the profession which focuses on the practice and running of an interior design project rather than simply focusing on the design aspects.
Angela Brady, RIBA President Elect Sept 2010-2011
This book must be a welcome addition for interior designers who need the comfort zone that they are managing all aspects of the job. I think this concise reference book with excellent examples on how to handle different aspects of the design and management process will be a great asset to many. We live in changing and litigious times so it is important to be up to date and professional with all aspects of job management, so that we can flourish with our design skills and be comforted that we have the business side covered too.
Lizzy Van Lysebeth, contemporary interior designer and founder/editor of the online community for contemporary interior designer
The book has been written by two longstanding architectural and interior veterans.It is oriented to medium or large size design practices working on projects with a certain budget. Although the design practices explained should form the foundation for every interior design studio not all maybe feasible on smaller projects.
The book is divided in various chapters starting with a preliminary chapter explaining the very basics on how and what to communicate with a client, how to keep time sheets and expense records, how to propose a project to a client and what to include, and why and how to use the Agreement for Interior Design Services (ID/10.) Throughout the various chapters the authors use a hands-on approach using fictitious characters playing the roles of client, designer, contractor, etc. explaining their role, how to communicate with them, what to expect, which agreements to make and much more.
The subsequent chapters will lead you through a project preparation stage, outlining the brief, prepare schedules, diagrams and matrices, going on to cover the design stage, the pre-construction and construction stages. In each and every segment the authors set the example on how to do things right in order to avoid problems or unnecessary discussions. The methods and way of working explained will protect you as a designer but equally the client and the subcontractors involved and consequently will serve as the foundation for the smooth flow of the project itself. The reader can also find sections detailing the various roles a designer can take on (eg: contractor, FF&E supplier, etc.)
A final chapter discusses payment, the importance to keep a sound cash flow and how to go about handling a dispute. Overall the book is packed with ready to apply information and can be used by students and professionals alike. It can be read through as a handbook or serve as reference guide when and where needed. It is a recommended read to any dedicated interior designer.
Review by Carrie Webb, Creative Director, Paperspace Design.
This book provides an in depth, step by step guide to running an interior design project from start to finish. The book is divided into stages based on the RIBA’s Plan of Work and at each stage explanations, specimen documents and advice take you through the process. The subject matter is inevitably a little dry but the book is well written in an informal style that makes it surprisingly readable.
The book also draws on the RIBA’s Architect’s Job Book but reflects the differences between an interior design project and an architectural job. A section of the book is dedicated to guiding the reader through the Form of Appointment for Interior Design Services, ID/10 from BIID. Whether you intend to use this document or not the advice is sound and transferable to your own documentation.
Whilst experienced designers will be au fait with a good deal of the subject matter there are a number of more advanced topics, such as dispute resolution, that might be unfamiliar. The formalisation of a design project into detailed stages prompts you to think about your own processes and the model letters and forms could also be very useful. Essential reading for anyone setting up their own interior design practice or senior designers running their own jobs.

The BIID has developed the most significant new publication for interior designers. The Job Book is an important tool in supporting professionalism and education, the core of the BIID’s ethos.
Iris Dunbar, Director of The Interior Design School
For the first time professionalism, good practice and competency are covered in the book for interior designers, developed by Stephen & Diana Yakeley and supported by the BIID. This should make compulsory reading for professionals and students alike.
Sue Timney, Interior Designer
The Job Book is an authoritative, concise and thorough book - a must have for all interior design professionals.
