WASHINGTON, DC—The National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) has released its newest exam study resource. Culpepper Building is a practice design problem (PDP) for Section III of the NCIDQ Examination, a drawing practicum that requires candidates to produce a design solution for a multifunctional facility. The practicum problem requires candidates to interpret the problem into schematics, produce drawings and develop appropriate specifications.
Culpepper Building is based on a large multifunctional space that includes a library, lounge area, retail store and private apartment. Section III of the exam includes different space types in order to simulate real-world interior design planning, creating a design for any space type that meets codes and protects the health, safety and welfare of the public. All of NCIDQ’s PDPs offer a variety of interior spaces – retail, educational, hospitality, medical or office – and are great practice tools for those studying to take Section III of the exam.
The Culpepper Building PDP includes a blank examination, Parts I and II of Section III, as well as a solved examination that shows one possible solution to the Culpepper problem. The problem allows purchasers the ability to simulate the drawing portion of the examination and apply the grading criteria to their solution to identify strengths and weaknesses in their knowledge areas.
The all-new practice design problem sells for $65 plus shipping. Please visit NCIDQ’s Web site at www.ncidq.org to download an order form.
NCIDQ® is an organization of regulatory boards and provincial associations in the United States and Canada whose core purpose is to protect the health, life safety and welfare of the public by establishing standards of competence in the practice of interior design.
