With the publication of the new International Building Code, the building industry is moving toward a single universal set of construction codes, rather than the three regional codes previously in use. Now more than ever, architects need an interpretive guide to understand how the building code affects the early design of specific projects. This unique reference blends the graphic skills of bestselling author Francis Ching with the code expertise of Steven Winkel. They closely examine the portions of the building code most relevant to the architect and provide a simple and practical interpretation using both words and illustrations. All of the changes in the code are explained in simple, user-friendly language so you'll get up to speed quickly and easily. Order your copy today.

From the Back Cover:

From bestselling author Francis D.K. Ching and building codes expert Steven Winkel . . .

Building Codes Illustrated combines highly illustrative explanations with expert guidance to provide an accessible, timesaving companion guide to the new International Building Code® (IBC). Understanding the criteria for code development and the reasons for code provisions is essential to unlocking this unified code, and no better team than Ching and Winkel can demystify the complex, layered sections of the IBC with more direct, insightful interpretations.

Organized to correspond with related subject matter in the IBC, Building Codes Illustrated enables architects, engineers, and other design professionals to quickly find clarifying information on the nonstructural provisions of the IBC and gain a clear and complete understanding of those sections at a glance through enlightening computer-rendered illustrations and succinct, thorough interpretations.

Experienced practitioners can no longer rely on memory or old habits when picking construction types or assemblies based on prior practice, and emerging professionals must have a strong understanding of the new Code to avoid costly mistakes–both need Building Codes Illustrated.
