work such as concrete, plaster, carpentry framework and preliminary building ser-
vices work and 2nd Fix which is all the finishing work. At the present time, the
following applies.

The designers will say:
I have just completed a conversion.
I have just completed a refurbishment.
I have interior-designed this property.
I have designed the interior.

The ‘makers’ can say:
I have built this interior.
I have installed this interior.
I have fitted out this interior.
I have decorated this interior (only part of the work).
I have furnished this interior.

Now if you use my proposed term, it includes all of the above:
I have just interadapted this building. Meaning that you have designed and super-
vised the building and installation of an interior. The building has been interadapted.

More terms:
The interiors have undergone an interadaption—noun.
The next stage is to interadapt this space—verb.
We are interadapting this building—present participle.

Let us examine the stages or different methods of building an interior (or intera-
dapt) to the structure of a given building shell:

1. Adding to the structure in terms of the enclosure (walls, floors, ceilings) refer
Sect. 4.2.

2. Application of liquid coatings such as plaster and paint, and linings direct not
only onto structure but also onto cladding panels.

3. Application of flexible membranes such as wallpaper, PVC and leather.
4. Cladding of rigid materials such as panels, ceramic tiles, marble and ceiling

systems.
5. Fixing of a framework to which panels may be fixed (Figs. 4.3 and 4.4).

The enclosure is described in simple terms as being comprised of walls, floor and
ceiling. The relationship of any independent fixtures to these elements can be
described in terms of being:

WALLS—fixed direct or cantilevered
FLOOR—free standing/fixing
CEILING—suspended
BETWEEN FLOOR AND CEILING—wedged
FROM WALL TO WALL—spanning

The consideration of surface finishes for a construction concept is dealt with
only in so far as what kind of material is being considered and not the final speci-
fied product. Otherwise, this strays into the ‘Material’ concept.
