Description
Practical and reader-friendly, the 2012 INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE® COMMENTARY, VOLUME 1 is a powerful resource that addresses the practical implications of the code so critical for anyone in or entering the building industry. Its effectiveness lies in its use of a unique formula that has made previous editions so successful: it combines the full text of the code with valuable commentaries that offer a more in-depth and applied understanding of its regulations. Although it includes the technical requirements of the code, it goes beyond these to explore its meaning, its applications, and the potential consequences when it is not followed. Volume 1 focuses on the provisions contained in chapters one through 15. Coverage is detailed, but never overwhelming, making it a must-have for code officials, engineers, architects, inspectors, plans examiners, contractors, and anyone seeking a more solid understanding of the 2012 International Building Code®.
