The Boca Code Manual's project-oriented checklists make compliance with the arcane and unwieldy Building Officials and Code Administrators' code requirements a cinch. The book is organized for the four distinct stages of the building process -- design, architectural documentation, structural documentation, and specifications -- all in checklists to be used on-site for quality control. By using this comprehensive guide in conjunction with the building code, architects and construction professionals can avoid costly delays, change orders, and possible lawsuits. It will also help them provide the complete, consistent documentation or "paper trail" of code compliance at each stage of the process.
A CD-ROM included with the book allows the reader to custom-tailor the checklists for each particular project.

Achieve BOCA compliance using detailed checklists that cover all building codes. Avoid the time consuming design changes and expensive construction change orders, and claims that can result from a failure to design according to building codes. This invaluable book/CD* package "decodes" the unwieldy provisions of the BOCA code as they relate to individual projects at different stages--and makes compliance a cinch! The manual reformats the BOCA code requirements into five distinct project stages: initital code investigation, design development, architectural documentation, structural documentation, and specifications--and addresses each in checklists that you can use to ensure quality control. You'll also find a Code Information Form for initial documentation of code requirements--plus a Deficiency Worksheet for recording noncompliance items found during code review with the checklists.
