CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The first book of its kind to hit the market, BUILDING CODE BASICS:
RESIDENTIAL, BASED ON THE 2009 INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTIAL CODE departs from
traditional code books by using non-code language, detailed illustrations, and
an emphasis on practical information to give readers a solid, working knowledge
of critical code applications. Part of Building Code Basics, a series dedicated
to providing high-quality, technically accurate, simplified code texts for
anyone seeking greater understanding of the workings of the I-Codes; this
installment focuses on the basics of the residential code. Topic coverage
follows the logical order of construction, beginning with site work and
foundations, and ending with fire- and life-safety and the environmental
requirements of a finished building. These code requirements are introduced
using non-intimidating language and an easy-to-understand writing style,
facilitating learning and comprehension. Code references are also included, and
when paired with these practical explanations, they are a valuable addition to
the book's resources, making this an ideal tool for students of construction
technology or anyone considering a career in the design, construction, or
inspection of residential buildings.
