About

Overview

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 anyone 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.
