building code solutions at a glance
Now the job of understanding and applying the new building code is easier. Though codes setting legal standards for the health, safety, and welfare performance of buildings are notoriously complex, this one-of-a-kind reference almost makes the new code simple. It brings you not only expert interpretation, but -- better yet -- design and detail drawings that show you how the code is applied.
from code to plain English
Based on the author's own practice and on interviews with other architects and code officials, noted architect, writer, and teacher Terry Patterson's Illustrated 2000 Building Code Handbook translates the dry and often obscure legal prose of the code into understandable language, helping you both absorb rules and apply them correctly. What's more, this book turns convoluted paragraphs into simple lists and converts equations into tables, saving you time and enhancing your ability to meet the standards' intention. Finally, Patterson's array of drawings makes comprehension and application even easier.
pass the design exam-- get ahead at work
A big help to those studying for the design portion of the architectural licensing exam -- now increasingly code-centered -- Illustrated 2000 Building Code Handbook is also ideal for those just starting in practice or preparing to embrace the new code. This unique guide:
