Join ASID NY Metro for our August Chapter meeting all about Building Codes. The presentation will focus on the following areas:

  1. How occupancy creates and changes code requirements.
  2. Interior finish requirements and their corresponding codes.
  3. The code requirements for accessible clear spaces and project limitations.
  4. Items that interior designers should not move, conceal, or modify.

Light food & drink will be served!
