Overview

About The Product

Practical and reader-friendly, the 2015 INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE® COMMENTARY, VOLUME 1 is a powerful resource that addresses the practical implications of the code critical for students entering the building industry. Its effectiveness lies in its use of a unique formula that has made previous editions so successful: it combines the text of the code with valuable commentaries that offer a more in-depth and applied understanding of its regulations. Although it includes the technical requirements of the code, it goes beyond these to explore its meaning, its applications, and the potential consequences when it is not followed. Coverage is detailed, but never overwhelming, making it a must-have for any instructor aiming to prepare their students for the real-world scenarios and challenges that they may encounter.
