All architects must have a solid working knowledge of building codes: noncompliance means cost overruns at best and lawsuits at worst. This resource has been written in the graphic language of design. Areas covered include: codes and standards; special occupancy; building limitations; type of construction; use or occupancy; fire-resistant materials and construction; interior finishes; fire protection systems; means of egress; accessibility; interior environment; exterior wall coverings; roofing; structural loads and inspections; foundations and retaining walls; building materials; plumbing and electricity; elevators; and construction issues. This book should be of interest to architects, designers, builders and building owners.
