Description
Take your knowledge of the 2012 INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE® to the next level with the second half of the successful two-volume 2012 INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE® COMMENTARY set. Maintaining the same practical and reader-friendly approach, this book picks up where the first volume left off, targeting chapters 16 through 35 of the 2012 IBC®. For each of these chapters, the full text of the code is presented alongside an in-depth commentary that explores the real-world applications of its requirements, effective strategies for following them, and the potential consequences that could result when they are overlooked. The end result is an indispensable resource for code officials, engineers, architects, inspectors, plans examiners, contractors, and anyone seeking a better understanding of the 2012 IBC®.
