Product Overview

The construction industry is evolving a single set of international building codes. Now, more than ever, architects need an interpretive guide to understand how the building code affects the early design of specfic projects. One in a series of focused guides to building codes from Wiley, this book familiarizes code users with the 2009 International Residential Code® (IRC) as it applies to residential buildings. The book focuses on the essential ten chapters of the IRC that set forth the core provisions of the code necessary for use in building design and construction.

Early understanding and incorporation of code-compliant design provisions in a project is essential. This book provides design and construction professionals---architects, engineers, and residential building contractors---an understanding of how the International Residential Code was developed, and how it is likely to be interpreted when applied to the design and construction provisions for one-and two-family residential buildings and townhouses.

Residential Building Codes Illustrated is an essential companion to the IRC for those seeking to master the accepted construction knowledge in the field, and for experienced practitioners needing to understand the newest code revisions and changes.

The International Code Council (ICC) is a nonprofit membership association dedicated to protecting the health, safety, and welfare of people by creating better buildings and safer communities. The mission of ICC is to provide the highest quality codes, standards, products, and services for all concerned with the safety and performance of the built environment. ICC is the publisher of the family of the International Codes® (I-Codes®), a single set of comprehensive and coordinated national model codes. This unified approach to building codes enhances safety, efficiency, and affordability in the construction of buildings. The code Council is also dedicated to innovation, sustainability, and energy efficiency.
