Publisher Comments:

The easy-to-use, illustrated guide to the 2012 edition of the International Building Code®

The Fourth Edition of this practical, user-friendly guide is fully updated and revised to reflect the 2012 International Building Code® (IBC). Marrying the graphic skills of bestselling author Francis D.K. Ching with the code expertise of Steven R. Winkel, Building Codes Illustrated, Fourth Edition features nearly 900 illustrations and easy-to-understand explanations of the portions of the building code that are most relevant for designers.

Organized to correspond with the 2012 IBC, this edition allows readers to quickly navigate and access the latest codes for all types of construction, occupancy, usage, and modifications. It highlights the major changes between the current and previous building codes, helping architects understand how the introduction of the new 2012 IBC is going to affect their practice. Clear, precise interpretation of the fundamentals helps ensure that projects are up to code and free of costly mistakes.

Praise for the 2009 edition:

"Building Codes Illustrated is an accessible and trusted interpretive guide to the 2009 International Building Code® for architects, builders, engineers, and interior designers. In a visual format created expressly for design-minded readers, this handy reference helps professionals understand how the code can be applied to a building."

—Concrete International
