9780471286554: Architectural Building Codes: A Graphic Reference

Architectural Building Codes by James G. Scott All architects must have a solid working knowledge of building codes. Noncompliance means facing strained schedules and budgets at best, and lawsuits at worst. Yet until now, no resource has been available to professionals that demystifies architectural building codes in straightforward, easy-to-understand language, with a unique graphic presentation. James G. Scott's Architectural Building Codes slices through the technical, legal, and bureaucratic jargon of building codes with a direct, engaging style. Beginning with the assumption that building codes are by nature complex and difficult to understand, Mr. Scott provides both the theoretical principles and practical grounding all architectural professionals need to efficiently incorporate code regulations into their designs. The author bridges the gap between theory and application, turning the arcane, impenetrable rules of building codes into usable concepts. The material is cogently organized from general to specific ideas, leading the reader on a logical progression through the maze of code regulation. Comprehensive in scope, this book covers building codes with a refreshingly broad perspective. Architectural Building Codes is a complete user's guide that covers a wide range of topics, including:
* accessibility standards and the Americans with Disabilities Act
* fire-resistant materials
* building limitations
* means of egress
* roofing, interior finishes, floor and wall coverings
* occupancy
* building materials
* plumbing and mechanical codes
* elevators
An outstanding graphic presentation featuring striking pen-and-ink drawings illuminates technical concepts and regulations. The Appendix provides a list of practical addresses that guides the reader to other useful resources. Architectural Building Codes is a one-of-a-kind reference and resource for architecture students as well as professionals responsible for code compliance. Building managers and owners who require both practical information and a broad grasp of code issues will find this book an indispensable guide.
