Builder's Portable Handbook
On-the-Job Access to RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERICAL BUILDINGS
You'll be grateful for this book every time you need a fact, figure, or formula. Portable and a snap to use, the Builders' Portable Handbook is a shortcut past the code, load, best practice, and many other work-stopping questions that pop up during residential and commercial construction. Eliminating the temptation to make error-producing, and potentially hazardous, guesses, this guide is essential for any contractor, building inspector, architect, or engineer.
Page after page, it gives you easy-to-find, expert answers on:
Foundation requirements and codes.
Organized by CSI MasterFormat(TM) and written by a structural engineer/lawyer, the "Builders' Portable Handbook" provides answers you can trust, when and where you want them, plus space for your notations. Put it in your pocket and expedite every construction project. (You'll appreciate its fast-access, well-illustrated format in the office, too!)
