1997 uniform building code, Volume 1
International Conference of Building Officials, 1997 - Law - 574 pages
The Uniform Building Code is one of the most widely adopted model building codes in the world and is a proven document meeting the needs of government units charged with enforcement of building regulation. The most recent edition, published in 1997, provides complete regulations covering all major aspects of building design and construction relating to fire and life safety and structural safety. The provisions of the 1997 Uniform Building Code were published in three volumes to help building inspectors, plans examiners, architects and structural designers locate provisions applicable to their respective fields without the need to search through all provisions. The two most popular volumes, 1 and 2, are now available from Delmar Learning. Volume 1 contains the administrative, fire- and life-safety, and field inspection provisions, including all nonstructural provisions and those structural provisions necessary for field inspections.
