Explains the fundamental provisions of the 2012 International Building Code® in non-code language!

The Building Code Basics: Building based on the 2012 International Building Code® (IBC®) sets forth the code in an easy to read and understand format. This straightforward, focused approach introduces code requirements with non-code language, allowing readers to gain confidence in their understanding of the material. The book focuses on the basics of the building code requirements for building classification, fire protection features, means of egress systems, accessibility and structural integrity.

The content of Building Code Basics: Building is primarily organized to correspond to the arrangement of the 2012 IBC®. It commences with a review of the legal aspects associated with the adoption and enforcement of the building code provisions including permitting, right of entry and inspector liability. It progresses through the various aspects of building planning, including occupancy and type of construction classification, allowable building size and special uses. Fire and smoke protection features are addressed, as are fire protection systems and means of egress criteria. More specialized provisions such as accessibility and health safety are then addressed. This format is useful to readers because it pulls together related information from the various sections of the IBC® into one convenient location while providing a familiar frame of reference to those with any code enforcement experience. Full-color illustrations help readers to visualize correct code application and a glossary of code and construction terms clarifies key terminology as it applies to the code.

Features:
  • Simplifies the code in an easy to read format
  • Over 150 full-color illustrations help readers to visualize correct code application
  • Real day-to-day applications
  • Glossary of code and construction terms clarifies key terminology as it applies to the code

Technically accurate and easy to understand, this is the perfect resource for architects, plan reviewers, inspectors, permit technicians and contractors.
