What qualifies someone as a Professional Interior Designer?
A Professional Interior Designer is distinguished by their achievement of accredited education, relevant work experience, their successful completion of their qualification exam and membership in their professional association. Whether designing a private residence, commercial office, retail environment, recreation facility, or public institution, interior designers coordinate with other trades, suppliers, and licensed practitioners to ensure the safe, successful completion of a project. They bring a high level of expertise to client’s design challenges.
In Manitoba, a Professional Interior Designer has successfully completed the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) exam and is actively involved in the field of interior design. They are members of the Professional Interior Designers Institute of Manitoba (PIDIM) and will use the designation of Professional or Registered Interior Designer.
With this combination of training, experience, and examination, a Professional Interior Designer’s role is to:
Analyze clients’ needs, goals, and life and safety requirements
Integrate findings with knowledge of interior design
Formulate preliminary design concepts that are aesthetic, appropriate, functional, and in accordance with codes and standards
Develop and present final design recommendations
Prepare working drawings and specifications for non-load bearing interior construction, reflected ceiling plans, lighting, interior detailing, materials, finishes, space planning, furnishings, fixtures, and equipment in compliance with universal accessibility guidelines and all applicable codes
Collaborate with other licensed practitioners in the technical areas of mechanical, electrical, and load-bearing design as required for regulatory approval
Prepare and administer bids and contract documents as the client’s agent
Review and evaluate design solutions during implementation and upon completion
This professional definition is endorsed by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA), the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ), major interior design associations of North America, and unaffiliated professional interior designers.
Working with a designer who has attained professional membership in a provincial association assures you that the individual meets the highest level of professional qualifications. Designing, redesigning, or renovating an interior space often involves a significant investment of time, money, and effort. Hiring a professional interior designer is the best way to ensure you get value for your investment.
