In accordance with Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak’s guidance, the office of the Nevada State Board of Architecture, Interior Design and Residential Design will be temporarily closed to the public. During this time, staff will be working from home to continue serving Nevadans and out-of-state design professionals. This will be in effect starting March 16 and extend until further notice.
Please contact us via email (email@example.com) or phone (702-486-7300) and leave a detailed message so that we may get back to you. Mail service to our office will be temporarily suspended so email is the best way to get documents to us.
We will update this message as the situation is reassessed and the Governor determines we can safely reopen the office.
