Interior designing or interior fit out projects have large variation in type and scale. Some components such as daylight, electric lighting, water use, material use and indoor environmental quality are common in all kind of projects. This course introduces simple measurable aspects for each of these components using which the sustainability quotient for a project can be assessed.
